View Full Version : How many Flowers?

06-27-2009, 06:00 PM
You have 3 temples
1 Garden
1 Lake

A person has to pluck "X" nos of flowers only ONCE from the garden and go have a dip in the lake along with the flowers. As he comes out of the lake the nos of flowers double in volume. So for e.g. if he plucked 2 flowers, after the dip in the lake it becomes 4 flowers.

The person has to place equal nos of flowers in all the 3 temples and before entering each temple, he has to take a dip in the lake. So he has to take a dip 3 times in the lake and each time the flowers will double. Please keep in mind that he can pluck the flowers only once...

Was asked in my school days.. Not tough I guess.... I pray it's not a Re-Post... Have a nice weekend friends... Take care, Luv Farmerulz..

ok guys,,,,,
we have to pluck 7 flowers from garden
then it becomes 7+7=14 and put 8 of it into 1st temple then it becomes 14-8=6
again after second dip it becomes double of the remaining flowers means 6+6=12 and we have to put again 8 flowers in to the second temple and the remaining number of flowers will b 12-8=4 then after third dip it will again becomes just double of the remaining flower means 4+4=8 and its time to put all the flowers in to third temple........
