    Here is another brain teaser, which might be interest for Six Sigma. There is castle and spy has been send, in order to enter the castle spy has to guess the password. So he hides in the bush and waits. A trader come, the guard ask him 28, the answer was 14 and trader went into the castle. After that a peasant came, guard ask him 8, the reply was 4 and the peasant entered into the castle. After that a preast came, guard ask him 16, the reply was 8 and preast entered inside the caslte. Spy decided that he knew the password and also approached the castle, guard asked him 12, spy reply 6 and they cut his head off. What is the right password that the spy should say?

    My shot at the solution
     
    Don’t overlook the obvious.  The correct answer was 6.  The spy shouldn’t have been wearing the armor of the enemy kingdom.  After all, the guard isn’t blind.

    I agree with Rob.  I would think that the answer was 6 but the guard reconized the spy for what he was…
    Are you going to post the correct answer?

    28 … 8 … 16 … 12
    14 … 4 … 8 … ??
    Alternative answer is 8 – 4 = 4, but how are you supposed to know it is not 8 * 3/4 = 6 ??
