## Too Many Pills

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

 Puzzle ID: #44953 Fun: (2.3) Difficulty: (1.32) Category: Logic Submitted By: grilledcheese

A man has been prescribed 10 pills. Starting today, he must take one pill a day, but because the concentration of the medicine is different in each pill, he must take them in a specific order. Since the pills look the same, the man decided to write numbers on each pill to help him remember the order he needs to take them in.

What is the least amount of pills he has to number if he wants to keep track of the order?

 megabreath Jul 26, 2009 Good quiz. I was thinking 9 and then I realised he would take one straight away so guessed 8. mir77 Jul 27, 2009 dang, i said nine because he wouldn't have to label the last one tigerlily34 Jul 30, 2009 I thought the answer was 9 Question_Mark Aug 04, 2009 I liked this one . Not because I got it right, but because it was fun . valencia Aug 11, 2009 good teaser braingle100 Aug 19, 2009 for how long does he have to take these pills? wouldn't he still have to label the first one for the next day? grilledcheese Aug 19, 2009 They are each different types of pills. Read the first couple sentences again. chastain101 Nov 14, 2009 i thought the answer was nine zembobo Apr 08, 2010 This should go under "trick" not "logic". Good one though. coinjar876 May 11, 2010 I said 9 too eighsse Sep 21, 2013 I said 9. I considered 8, but assumed that he might be taking the first pill later in the day, not necessarily right away. Being categorized a logic puzzle, this should have been made clear. Trick/situation/mystery can have untold significant information, but logic should not.
