Hi! :)

I’ve got one Forrst and two Lovedsgn invites, again. :bigsmile: So here you have a puzzle game and the first three people to answer correctly will get the invitations.

“There are two shepherds but we do not know how many sheep does each shepherd have. If the first shepherd gives one sheep to the second shepherd, the second one would have the double of sheep than the first one, but if the second one gives one sheep to the first, both shepherds would have the same number of sheep. How many sheep does each shepherd have?”

Please don’t google it, and if you do, do not place the answer here. :P

I just posted this link too…

So,

the first had one

gave it to the 2nd

therefore the 2nd had 1

but the second had a pregnant sheep

now they have equal amounts

--I have no idea and didn’t event spend much time thinking about this one!

I think this can be seen as an math problem.

I thought like this. First shepherd has X sheeps, and the second has Y sheeps. So, therefore, we get an eccuation with two variables:

2*(Y+1)=X and X+1=Y .

After resolving it you get that the first shepherd had two sheeps and the the second had three sheeps. :D

@roland_groza

I think the equations would be:

2*(X-1)=Y+1 and X+1=Y-1

You have to add the sheep the first shepherd gives to the second shepherd.

But I need numbers :)

@Stylius , yes you’re right, I looked at it at the wrong way.

First Shepherd: 3 sheeps ; Second Shepherd: 5 sheeps;

Did I got that right ?

I don’t think so..

2*(5-1)=3+1 but 5+1 is not equal 3-1

You are close

I’m not saying anything else.. :) if you think you know the answer post it here…
