Hour GlassLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
With a 7-minute hourglass and an 11-minute hourglass, can you explain the quickest way to time a boiling egg for 15 minutes?
AnswerStart both hour glasses as the egg is dropped in the boiling water. When the sand stops running in the 7-minute hourglass, turn it over. When the sand stops running in the 11-minute hourglass, turn the 7-minute hourglass over and leave the 11-minute hourglass. When the sand stops in the 7-minute hourglass, 15 minutes will have elapsed.
