How about, who wants a go next?

And here's the video...

Ok, in that case, here's a puzzle about some of my favourite people: Rednecks!

Fred and Doug were excitedly describing the result of the Fifth Annual Hog Calling Competition in a back-woods town in Georgia. There were three contestants; Bubba, Ted, and Bill. Fred reported that Bubba won the competition, while Ted came in second. Doug, on the other hand, reported that Bill won the competition, while Bubba came in second.

In fact, neither Fred nor Doug had given a correct report of the results of the competition. Each of them had given one correct statement and one false statement. What was the actual placing of the three contestants?

1st place = Bill

Thanks Dave Smiley

below is a representation of 3 doors, behind 1 of those doors is the a prize. the prize will enable the winner of this puzzle to post the next puzzle.

[1]  [2]  [3]

choose what door you think the prize lies behind.
now, imagine I opened a door. a door that you did not choose, and it was not the winning door.
now I offer you a chance to change doors.

the question is should you change doors?

On the surface, it would seem that whether or not to change my choice of doors would be a 50% chance, either way. However, upon applying logic to the problem, it also seems that there would be a "right" and "wrong" answer, which would negate chance.

The problem is, my logic circuits are currently being used to compute how to make tea, so I have no answer at this time. Tongue

Having studied bayesian statistics, the answer is always 'yes, change boxes'

At first it appears 50/50 but is in fact 2/3 - 1/3. You will, on average, win twice as many if you change.

A late Puzzle. Have been kicked and don't want a jail sentence.

A landscaping company placed two orders with a nursery. The first order was for 13 bushes and 4 trees, and totalled $487. The second order was for 6 bushes and 2 trees, and totalled $232. The bills do not list the per-item price. What were the costs of one bush and of one tree?
