### Brain Teasers

# Dice

A die is sitting on a table, and you can only see three of the six sides. The top shows the number one, the left side shows the number five, and the right side shows the number four. Without moving anything (you must remain in this relative position to the die) what is on the opposite side of each number?

### Hint

It is a normal die, six sides, black dots on each face, and the numbers are 1-6.### Answer

Six is across from one.Two is across from five.

Three is across from four.

The opposite sides of a die add up to seven. If you don't believe me, go check it out.

Good Teaser!

I still dont get it...

What's to get, Happy? Opposing sides of a die always total 7 - the one pairs with the six, the two with the five, and the three with the four - that's just the way dice work.

Easy, but still good.

Nice teaser

Cool fact. Never knew that. So, if you're initially shooting craps, you're betting on your ability to roll dice so opposite sides come up (7). Mathematical probabilities based on #7?

ya learn something every day ! i like this one!

one of my die doesnt pair up to 7. its not a really good type, but it doesnt add up to 7. i knew this, its jsut that there are some exceptions.

good teaser but still did not get it
