# Logic Brain Teasers

Use your deductive reasoning to solve these brain teasers.

Logic puzzles require you to think carefully and work out the problem using deductive reasoning. All of the information that you need to solve the puzzle is in the puzzle if you look carefully. Often, it may help to draw a diagram or write down the information so you can visualize the problem and determine the answer.

Here is an example of a logic brain teaser that can be solved if you think carefully about geography.

**If a hunter goes out his front door, goes 50 miles south, then goes 50 miles west, shoots a bear, goes 50 miles north and ends up in front of his house, what color was the bear?**

Here is another example of a logic brain teaser that can be solved with a little math and by thinking carefully about where the money is going.

**Three people check into a hotel. They pay $30 to the manager and go to their room. The manager finds out that the room rate is $25 and gives $5 to the bellboy to return. On the way to the room, the bellboy reasons that $5 would be difficult to share among three people, so he pockets $2 and gives $1 to each person. Now, each person paid $10 and got back $1. So they paid $9 each, totalling $27. The bellboy has $2, totalling $29. Where is the remaining dollar?**

Here is one more example of a logic puzzle that can be solved without any additional information. The key with this one is to think carefully about exactly what information is given to you at the beginning. Writing down each possible outcome in a diagram can also help solve this puzzle.

**There are three boxes of tennis balls in a warehouse. They have all been mislabeled. One box is labeled yellow tennis balls, one is labeled white and yellow tennis balls and one is labeled white tennis balls. Take one can of tennis balls out of one box without looking into the box or into any other box. By just looking at the color of this one can of balls, can you correctly label each of the boxes?**
