## Lazy Jack

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

 Puzzle ID: #48468 Fun: (1.82) Difficulty: (0.59) Category: Logic Submitted By: MysteriousLight Corrected By: Gizzer

I have a friend whose name is Jack. He is really lazy. His science homework is to bring in one pound of something. He said that he's too lazy to find something that weighs a pound and something to hold it. He asked me to get those two things for him. I have 3 options: a thick wooden box that is holding a pound of bricks, a one-pounder shoulder bag, and a stack of a pound of books wrapped in one layer of thin wrapping paper. I want to give Jack the heaviest of my three objects. Which one should I choose?

I should choose the box of a pound of bricks-- a thick wooden box weighs more than thin wrapping paper. Every object (other than the box and paper) weighs a pound. The box full of a pound of bricks weighs most.

 tinypenguin Feb 10, 2011 I remember reviewing this teaser. Good job! unklemyke Feb 11, 2011 Since the typical brick weighs 3 to 5 pounds or more, it's not going to take much of a box to hold one pound of bricks. Maybe you should put it in a radiation-proof lead box to give your trick on Lazy Jack a little more "weight". Candyhook Feb 14, 2011 I got it reght away thebrain789 Feb 15, 2011 A little too easy. Marple Feb 22, 2011 Very easy but fun! HABS2933 Feb 22, 2011 I agree this one was pretty easy, but still fun. Jimbo Apr 17, 2011 Surely this is a logic puzzle. Where is there a 'situation' to reveal? MysteriousLight Apr 19, 2011 streaks Jun 27, 2011 Easy, but the kind of thing that makes me smile. Oh yeah, throw it at him, see if he gets up after that. + = how I feel right now... Eh, SC thanneer91 Jul 10, 2011 Yeah, got it. Nice one.. anjo29 Aug 29, 2011 how about the bag??? zembobo Nov 17, 2011 Nice one. Personally, I would have put the bricks in something light weight to fool more people. The people that think a pound of bricks weighs more than a pound of books would be wrong but would still choose the box for that reason and be right. So, I would change the teaser and put a pound of feathers in the box and a pound of bricks wrapped in thin plastic wrap. I think that would fool more people.
