# 5 Children’s Puzzles That Are Too Difficult for 95% of Adults

Сhildren look at the world quite differently from adults. Otherwise how can we explain those tasks which kids solve easily and quickly yet puzzle adults so often?

We at **Bright Side** decided to stretch our brains a little and found some children's puzzles. See if you can cope with them.

### Chess players

Two people are playing chess. According to the results of five games, each player scored three wins. How could this happen?

This could happen only under one condition: if they did NOT play against each other.

### How much does the brick weigh?

One brick weighs 1 kg plus half a brick. Calculate the weight of one brick.

To solve this task, it's better to write an equation. Let the brick weigh x kg, then:

*х = 1 + 0.5 * х х - 0.5 * х = 1 0.5 * х = 1 х = 2*

So one brick weighs 2 kg.

### Task of intelligence

A bottle of water and a bar of chocolate cost $11. Chocolate costs $10 more than water. How much does water cost?

This task can be solved in the mind or with the help of an equation. Let the bottle of water cost x dollars, then:

*х + х + 10 = 11 2х = 1 х = 0.5*

Hence, a bottle of water costs $0.50, and chocolate is $10.50.

### A missing letter

Would you guess which letter is missing here?

This is a row of letters that lists the first letters of the days of the week from Monday to Sunday. So the missing letter is T.

### Holey T-shirt

It is believed that only 17% of people can answer this question correctly.

This task has two correct answers.

- There are 4 holes in the T-shirt, because through them we see the background, meaning they're made on both sides.
- There are 8 of them if we count holes for the sleeves, neck, and body.
