There is a special auditorium that holds 100 people. It is not full. Each person claps seven times after a performance. Every time ten claps are heard, the man in the front twitches. Every third twitch, one of the actors hops. Every two hops, a person in the crowd cheers. Every four cheers, the actors bow. If they only bowed once, what is the least amount of people that can be in the auditorium?

BONUS! How many bows will the actors do if the auditorium is full?

Pretty good.... though is not something I would rack my brain over, it was pretty easy.

Well, seeing 33.27, they would think three, which is incorrect, so...
May 27, 2011

I suggest that the answer is given is incorrect, and that this is actually a much more tricky question!

33 people = 231 claps
... thus 23 twitches
... and seven hops
... making three cheers

... and we are still waiting for the first bow!

This will be an very good teaser when it is corrected!

Oops - forget most of that ... the error is in your final calculation! 240/7 = 34.28, so the answer is 35. Not so difficult, as long as people remember to round UP instead of to the nearest whole number.

I good question for the classroom - thanks!

I agree the answer should be 35.

yup the answer is 35!! and really fun teaser.

35 is what I came up with. And shouldn't this be under math and not logic?
Jun 22, 2011


It's too easy to be put under math. It's more logic because you have to think about how you have to come up with the answer.

It was easy, but fun. The correct answer is indeed 35.

Woah... Where'd I get 33? Probably a typo.
