### No Uninvited Guest Puzzle

No Uninvited Guest Puzzle - 12 October

Queen Elizabeth organized a royal party.

To Avoid uninvited guest royal family set a password.
Wayne (an uninvited person) plan to enter the party. He stood nearby the door.

First guest comes, the security person said 'twelve' and guest replied with six.
Second guest comes , the security person said 'six' and guest replied with 'three'.

Wayne thought is enough and he walked to the entry point. The security person said 'eight' , Wayne replied smilingly 'four'.
He was immediately thrown out of the party.

why ?

1. he'll get in with "five"

1. great thinking man

2. great thinking man

2. count the letters. he should have said five as the answer. 'eight' has five letters.

3. First guest comes, the security person said 'twelve' and guest replied with six.
Second guest comes , the security person said 'six' and guest replied with 'three'.. im getting confused here!
cool math 4 kids

4. Twelve has '6' letters
Six has '3' letters
So correct password for Eight is '5', I guess

5. he should have told 5(number of letters in eight).

6. It can also be like this:
Q=12, A=6 [(1+2)x2=6]
Q=6, A=3 [(6)x2=12 -> 1+2=3]
So:
Q=8, A=7 [(8)x2=16 -> 1+6=7]

1. what the poo?

2. what are you, a math teacher with a REALLY big mouth?

3. Hey, this is a good alternate solution. With only two terms, just about any sequence could be extrapolated. The simplest was shown to be wrong in the question, but letters isn't the only alternative :P

4. Why do you guys waste time on writing silly replies ?
Oh ! Wait a minute.......I am doing it too !

5. If u can do math, u can see he's making his own solutions before he starts. The last 'A' he does is 7... From Q=8.. So he was wrong... Period. Its 5 and that's a neat fuckin pw
