Figure out how many cubes were used to make the formation below and win our challenge of the day.
While some picture riddles target our eyesight, others require nothing but logic to be solved. This time, we’re asking you to put all of your skills to good use and find out how many cubes were used in making the structure you see below.
Though some of you may be quick to share your answers, we urge you to think twice and not let yourself get deceived by the tricky nature of the puzzle.
Keep in mind that your job is to take into account all of the cubes used, meaning that you should count the ones visible to your eyes as well as those that are hiding behind the rest.
To get to the correct answer, we suggest you take things step by step and start by counting the cubes at the bottom before making your way to higher floors.
The answer to this riddle is 9! Nine cubes were used to make the formation, whereas five are at the bottom, three in the middle, and one on top!
If you enjoyed this task, you might find the next challenge no less entertaining.
In the picture below, you can see five hardworking men. Four of them are right-handed and only one is left-handed. Can you figure out who?
To solve the puzzle, you can try to follow the elimination process. Let’s start by ruling out the writer. He would likely not use his right hand for writing if he was left-handed. Meanwhile, the blacksmith and the woodcutter couldn’t get their job done without using their dominant hand.
This leaves us with the photographer and the waiter. The photographer is instinctively pressing the shutter button with his right finger and this implies that his right hand is the dominant one.
As for the waiter, he is carrying the tray with his right hand because this allows him to serve the drinks to his customers using his dominant hand – the left one!
