### Brain Teasers

# Passes

The Timberland Tigers coach gave his 14 players jerseys numbered 0 to 13. He then told them to stand in numerical order from 0 to 13 in a circle, and he gave the ball to the player wearing the number 0. He told them to pass it to the person 3 numbers ahead of them. For example, if I was number 6 and I got the ball, I would pass it to number 9. After 120 passes the coach told them to take a rest. Who had the ball when they stopped?

### Answer

Number 10 had the ball when they stopped because every 14 passes it get backs to zero. If you divide 120 by 14 you get 8 remainder 8. Then you use that extra remainder as 8 passes to get #10.Hide Answer Show Answer
