The kids today seem to know much more than us and sometimes we are even stumped. Below we are presenting four simple puzzles which the elementary school children seem to be able to solve immediately. What about you?
There are 50 chocolate candies in the box, where 30 come with caramel filling, 25 come with coconut, 10 are two-flavored with caramel and coconut. The rest are just chocolate candies with no filling. Which diagram reflects the box of chocolates in the correct way?
The number of the caramel candies in the box is: 30 - 10 = 20
The number of the coconut candies in the box is: 25-10 = 15
The number of the plain chocolate candies in the box is: 50 - (20 + 15 +10) = 5
