1. ## New puzzle

There were some birds sitting on two branches of a tree.
Branch A and Branch B
One of the bird of Branch A says to the birds on the Branch B "One of u come here and we will be equal."
In reply Branch B bird Say " one of u come here and we would be double compare to u."

Now say how many birds were their on branch A and branch B

the rules are same
keep guessing
Answer will be posted on Saturday 01st Nov
or Sunday 2nd November after 5.00 pm

2. no entry to Mr. darani, i know he is good in calculation so please dont answer.

3. All other members common start trying

4. The answer is... on branch A there are 5 birds and on branch B there are 7 birds...

Method 1:
Trail and error method... like trying it starting from 1,2, and so on...

Method 2: Mathematical way

Let, The no. of birds on branch A = A
The no. of birds on branch B = B

Step1

A+1 = B-1 (because if we add one bird on branch A and decrease one bird on branch B, then they are equal)

So, A+1 = B-1
1+1 = B-A
or, 2+A = B ................ equation 1

Step2

2(A-1) = B+1 (because if we subtract one bird on branch A and decrease one bird on branch B, then branch B birds are double of branch A)

So, 2(A-1) = B+1
2A-2 = B+1
2A-B = 1+2
2A-B = 3
or, 2A-3 = B ...................equation 2

now comparing the 2 equations(by mathematical method), we get

2A-3 = 2+A
2A-A = 3+2
A = 5 ..........so there are 5 birds in branch A

now satisfying the value in equation 1, we get

2+5 = B
or, B = 7..........so there are 7 birds on branch B

... This effort was especially for Zara...

5. hey man candid...y me?

U know i'm too weak in mathematics.....

I never score any marks in my xams also....

Ok so no probs........
tat was a nice problem....

Well done Muffy and Zara.....

6. wow brilliant guys...
next time we shud exclude muffy too .. hahaha

7. shainee u tooo?????????????
oh cum on....

i'm not gud at solving puzzles....ok?
so i'm alowed nxt time.....Only muffy can't answer....
ok?

ok darani
i was not knowing that there are many future scientist in this forum
cheers for muffy.......................
great work muffy
but one thing i would like to tell, u should not answer so fast let the other should try, anyway from now onwards i will ask muffy to pm me and say on the puzzle section that the answer is posted and i will tell other that muffy is correct

he,
since when zara has declared for marriage every one is trying to impress her

10. Its not to impress dude!! This is to avoid too many questions from Zara....
