FAQ
Categories : logic : wrong.labels.p

Three candle boxes are labeled "white", "red", and "white and red."  All
three labels are incorrect.  How many candles do I have to pull out to
correctly label the boxes, and how do I do it?

Also:

There are four boxes, labeled:
  "Pennies and Nickels"
  "Nickels and Dimes"
  "Dimes and Quarters"
  "Just Quarters"

All the labels are incorrect.  How many coins do I have to sample to
correctly label the boxes, and how do I do it?
