### Brain Teasers

# Pizza Dogs

Trick
Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

Five homeless dogs are hungry, so they decide to steal pizza. The five dogs are:

2 Boxers with a 50% chance of succeeding

1 Schnauzer with a 75% chance of succeeding

2 Bloodhounds with a 100% chance of succeeding

If the Boxers go first, then the Bloodhounds, then the Schnauzer, what is the chance of their succeeding/not in this order?

Succeed

This is not a Probability teaser. Look closely...### Answer

0%! The two Bloodhounds go right after one another. They would have to both succeed for there to be any chance at all!Hide Hint Show Hint Hide Answer Show Answer

Hahaha you got me! Great teaser going as my favorite!

Nice one

The bloodhound failed...

Nice teaser! I wonder if the dogs would be able to work if they didn't go in that order.

yes i was right it was like suceed NOT! suceed NOT!

That was confusing...

This teaser needs a serious overhaul in wording. Too confusing.

I found it easy, but fun. Good teaser, thx!

Great teaser! I said there was no pizza left after the first one succeeded, so it was impossible.

Easy one!

Easy one. Loved it though.

Sorry, but "succeeding/not in this order" is not worded well. The way it is written suggests the chances of succeeding are "not in this order" and therefore do not conform to the order you then set out. If you meant "succeeding or not succeeding in this order" then it should have been worded more clearly. Either way, I do love teasers with dogs and understand their penchant for pizza, so I'm sure they would go back as many times as necessary to get all the pizza they wanted.

*headdesk* Yes, this is a probability teaser. There is no trick here.
