## It's The Family Feud

Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.

 Puzzle ID: #19536 Fun: (2.86) Difficulty: (2.39) Category: Logic Submitted By: strzynski

On a certain game show, five families were asked to match famous names to faces they were shown, and each correct guess got one point. The families made the following guesses (in order):

The Addams' guessed Otto, Roebling, Steinmetz, Tesla, and Westinghouse.

The Bunkers guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Otto, Steinmetz, and Roebling.

The Cunninghams guessed Roebling, Tesla, Steinmetz, Westinghouse, and Otto.

The Flintstones guessed Tesla, Roebling, Otto, Steinmetz, and Westinghouse.

The Jetsons guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Steinmetz, Otto, and Roebling.

No two families got the same number of points. Which family walked home with the grand prize?

### Hint

There is no way for a family to get only four points, since if they matched four correctly, the last one *has* to be correct as well. The only possible point totals, therefore, are 0, 1, 2, 3, and 5. That's five totals and five families...

 I_am_the_Omega Nov 22, 2004 Really easy... but, I'm glad it wasn't some stupid trick, and actually followed a logical pattern lol. Not bad Gizzer Nov 22, 2004 I enjoyed the references in the answer - a little extra fun! I_am_the_Omega Nov 26, 2004 Lol yeah.. i liked how the Flinstones won a trip to the nearest pit :-) (user deleted) Jan 13, 2005 I loved it. More please Nytwynd Oct 10, 2005 This is great. Liked the references Illusionist Feb 19, 2011 This puzzle was just a brain grinder! gaylewolf Feb 19, 2011 I love puzzles but I didn't get this one at all Can someone please explain it to me? Thank you in advance! MysteriousLight Feb 19, 2011 If one family had to get all 5 right (no family could get just 4 or else the last had to be right too), then you could pick one and compare to others. If there are duplicates, as the maker said, then the family you picked to have 5 right didn't get 5 right. Continue this until you get one family with 0 points, one with 1, one with 2, one with 3, and one with 5. Just like a guess-and-check math problem. juju1946 Feb 19, 2011 aauuugggghh! brain cramp! I am so not good at these... papiermeister Feb 19, 2011 huh?? sunnybonghits Feb 19, 2011 cool - i liked it. it was kind of brainless since you just had to assume one family got them all right and then compare all the answers and add up the points, but it was still enjoyable to think about for a minute or two. cheers auntiesis Feb 21, 2011 I loved this one, and it was relatively easy for me, just had to try each family til I hit the right one. Fun. More, please. HABS2933 Feb 19, 2014 Even without the hint, the point totals were obvious. Took about a minute to work through which family won the prize but as stated by another poster, it was nice that the answer was logical and followed a intelligent course instead of working through it to find it was a trick. kittygirl19 Feb 19, 2014 I loved the jokes in the answer. Very cool! FatHead Feb 19, 2014 Nice, I loved it.
