[Puzzle Code = ZGIR] Copyright © Randall Fine Direct Link: www.brainbashers.com?ZGIR Hint: Where does Gabbie sit? Answer: Seat 1 = William Seat 2 = Nick Seat 3 = Eric Seat 4 = Sydney Seat 5 = Gabbie Seat 6 = Amanda Seat 7 = Sarah Seat 8 = Alisa Sydney is in Seat 4 and is next to Gabbie (Clue 6), so Gabbie is in either Seat 3 or Seat 5. But Gabbie has a higher seat number than Sydney (Clue 7). Therefore Gabbie is in Seat 5. William is across from Gabbie (Clue 2) and therefore is in Seat 1. William is next to Alisa and Nick (Clue 1), so Alisa and Nick are in Seat 2 and Seat 8 (either way around). But Alisa is not in Seat 2 (Clue 8). Therefore Alisa is in Seat 8 and Nick is in Seat 2. Nick is next to Eric (Clue 5) so can only be in Seat 3. Sarah is across from Eric (Clue 4), and therefore is in Seat 7. Amanda is next to Sarah (Clue 3) and can only be in Seat 6.

Alex and Blake had been teaching for a total of 36 years. Charlie and Blake had been teaching for a total of 22 years. Charlie and Alex had been teaching for a total of 28 years. How long had each been teaching? [Puzzle Code = ZKLD] Copyright © Kevin Stone Direct Link: www.brainbashers.com?ZKLD Hint: Alex had been teaching 6 years longer than Blake. Answer: Alex had been teaching 21 years. Blake had been teaching 15 years. Charlie had been teaching 7 years. Alex and Blake had been teaching for a total of 36 years. Charlie and Blake had been teaching for a total of 22 years. Charlie and Alex had been teaching for a total of 28 years. Let Alex = A, Blake = B and Charlie = C, then:    A + B = 36       [1]    C + B = 22       [2]    C + A = 28       [3] If we use [3] - [2] we have:    A - B = 6        [4] If we use [1] + [4] we have:    2A = 42     A = 21 By [1] B = 15. By [3] C = 7.
