Mathematic puzzles

When we get a math puzzle, what’s the first thing we do?
We lose ourselves in search of formulas, logarithms etc. but we should know that most of the mathematical puzzles are based on simple logic which doesn’t need any complex formula or equation. We should think like an LP school child. There’s no need to think too much at the beginning itself.
Every puzzle demands mainly 3 steps:

  1. Analyze the puzzle and understand it.
  2. Use our logic.
  3. Think wisely.

Instead of noting down data we’re more interested in bookmarking links. (more…)
