Numbers are something we learn as children. These are important since many of the world’s questions can actually answered with math. Math is very important in our world, without it we would not have such a great society we have. For all those who love math, I would like to present these amazing math riddles. What are you waiting for, go ahead and try to solve them.

How many cards does each man have and how many cards do they trade?

7 large boxes (7 * 8 = 56 boxes)

11 total cartons and 96 boxes.

If at least 50 percent of the other remaining pirates agree on the plan, that is how they will split the gold. If less than 50 percent of the pirates agree, the pirate who came up with the plan will be thrown overboard. Each pirate is smart, greedy, and wants to throw as many others overboard as possible without reducing the amount of gold they get.

What plan can the first (oldest) pirate propose to live and get as much gold as possible?

If there were just 2 pirates the younger pirate would definitely deny the plan so he could get all of the gold.

If there were 3 pirates the first pirate can offer the second pirate 1 piece of gold and take the rest himself because the second pirate wouldn’t get anything if he has to propose a plan himself.

If there were 4 pirates the first pirate could take 99 for himself and offer 1 to the youngest pirate. They would both agree. If the youngest disagrees then he won’t get any gold in the next plan.

So when there are 5 pirates it is in the interest of the 3rd and 5th pirate to accept 1 piece, because if they don’t they won’t get anything in the next plan.
