## Four Houses at an Intersection

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

 Puzzle ID: #49260 Fun: (2.69) Difficulty: (1.8) Category: Logic Submitted By: Scorefire

At a + shaped intersection, four different-coloured houses are at the four corners of the intersection so that each house is separated by a road. All you know about the colours of the houses is:

1. The blue house is directly north of the purple house.

2. The orange house is directly west of the green house.

What colours are the two houses that are across the road from the green house?

 BeanSC Jan 21, 2012 Well done, nice twist on the orientation! SRB_1807 Jan 23, 2012 good one.. braingle100 Jan 23, 2012 Clever! jhosek Jan 25, 2012 I like it! Marple Jan 26, 2012 Liked it! JasonD Jan 31, 2012 Excellent. I read the first two conditions, thought "Wha--?" and then slowly realized the answer. zembobo Mar 09, 2012 For those of us who are visually challenged: \ B / ^ \ / / \ O || G | / \ | North / P \ | zembobo Mar 09, 2012 Wow LOL that totally didn't come out like I typed it. Anyway, thing of it as an X rather than a +. zembobo Mar 09, 2012 *think* .. not "thing"...sorry Candi7 Jun 12, 2012 Got it completely right!!!! Babe Jul 05, 2013 I never know how to figure these things out, but after reading Zembobo's theory it made a lot more sense. Thanks Zem! jaycr Jul 05, 2013 Hmmm . . . Happy 5th of July! cutebug Jul 05, 2013 Good teaser, but a little logic made this easy to figure out. crazy10man Jul 05, 2013 The first clue was misleading, but I still enjoyed the riddle!!! lukasiwicz Jul 07, 2013 I din't deem the first clue misleading, but it did require you to break the mental set that the roads are oriented east-west and north-south, rather than northeast-southwest and northwest-southeast. Without that realization, which, btw, did not come to my 78-year-old brain instantaneously, the puzzle is impossible to solve. lukasiwicz Jul 07, 2013 "didn't", not "din't", though I guess "din't" works, for a lazy enunciator. eighsse Sep 01, 2013 Brilliant and ingenious!! I stared at it saying "...not possible" for a couple of minutes, then read the answer. D'oh!!! However, I would change the first sentence to: "There is an intersection of two perpendicular roads." or "Two roads intersect at right angles."
