# It's The Family Feud

On a certain game show, five families were asked to match famous names to faces they were shown, and each correct guess got one point. The families made the following guesses (in order):

The Addams' guessed Otto, Roebling, Steinmetz, Tesla, and Westinghouse.

The Bunkers guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Otto, Steinmetz, and Roebling.

The Cunninghams guessed Roebling, Tesla, Steinmetz, Westinghouse, and Otto.

The Flintstones guessed Tesla, Roebling, Otto, Steinmetz, and Westinghouse.

The Jetsons guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Steinmetz, Otto, and Roebling.

No two families got the same number of points. Which family walked home with the grand prize?

The Addams' guessed Otto, Roebling, Steinmetz, Tesla, and Westinghouse.

The Jetsons guessed Tesla, Westinghouse, Steinmetz, Otto, and Roebling.

No two families got the same number of points. Which family walked home with the grand prize?

### Hint

There is no way for a family to get only four points, since if they matched four correctly, the last one *has* to be correct as well. The only possible point totals, therefore, are 0, 1, 2, 3, and 5. That's five totals and five families...### Answer

You can assume that one family got all 5 correct (from the hint if you didn't know that), and as such, you can choose a family to have the perfect score. Then compare their answers with the other families, and find out how the other families did. If there are any duplicate point totals, that can't be the correct perfect total family, and you move to the next.The correct order was Tesla, Roebling, Otto, Steinmetz, and Westinghouse. The totals for each family are

Addams = 2 (no thanks to Lurch)

Bunkers = 3 (you meathead!)

Cunninghams = 0 (the Fonz was not allowed to play)

Flintstones = 5

Jetsons = 1 (c'mon George, get off that broken treadmill)

and the Flintstones won a trip to the nearest tar pit.
