# Picture brain teasers

Every week we post new picture brain teasers on our Facebook page. A lot of people like to solve these picture brain teasers with answers. There are some really hard brain teasers, medium riddles, hard riddles for teens, but of course also some easy picture brain teasers. So these brain teasers can be enjoyed by everyone, adults and children.

As there is nothing so annoying as a puzzle you can't solve while you can’t find the answer either. It is so frustrating to watch a magician do his tricks. And in the end, when you ask: 'how did you just do that?', you always get the same answer: 'a magician never explains his tricks'. On this picture brain teasers page you can also find the answers and explanations at the bottom of the page (chapter: just riddles answers)

Have fun solving these picture brain teasers!

## Picture brain teasers with answers

** Picture brain teasers** 1

The letter M. It is in the word 'minute' once and in the word 'moment' twice, but the m is not in the words 'thousand years'.

** Picture brain teasers** 2

40 + 40 + 28 + 28 = 136 pieces

** Picture brain teasers** 3

The probability of the first dice rolls on for example a 4 is 1/6. The probability of the next one being a 5 is 1/6 again. So 1/6 x 1/6 = 1/36. The chance that the 3rd dice is then a 6 is again 1/6. So 1/6 x 1/6 that it will be exactly like this. So 1/216. But...the order doesn't have to be 4, 5, 6. There are also 5 other sequences so that eventually a 4, 5 and 6 are thrown. The sequences can also be: 465, 546, 564, 654, 645. So 6 possibilities in total in order x 1/216 = 6/216 and that is simplified the same as.... 1/36.

** Picture brain teasers** 4

The answer is 1

** Picture brain teasers** 5

Answer 5

** Picture brain teasers** 6

There is a C between the G's.

** Picture brain teasers** 7

You might wonder why 5 stars? First of all you have to count well, but then you also have to be so sharp to realize that there are no blocks on the inside... There are a total of 6 sides to the cube each with 5 x 5 = 25 planes. So a total of 150 planes.

Then the number of blocks. At the top of the cube you have 25 blocks. At the bottom you also have 25 blocks. But the rows in between have only 16 blocks each, because the middle 9 blocks are not there. So 98 blocks in total.

**8****Picture brain teasers**- If you compare the colours on the first row to the colours on the third row, you'll see that one colour is different, namely yellow has become orange. And instead of 2 colours that are correct (but not in the right place), suddenly there are 3. So the conclusion: yellow is not in there, orange is.

- On the fourth row there are 2 correct colours. One is orange, we know. The other one is purple or blue. Since there are 4 colours out of 6 to be used. So green and red are both correct. So now we have: orange, red and green.

- Orange has to be on the 3rd place.

- In the first row we see red and green that both have to be used. So blue can't be right. So now we have our four colours: red, orange, purple and green.

- Purple is correct in the fourth row. Because in the second row, orange and purple are not in the right place, red must be in the right place there.

- So then the order becomes: red, purple, orange, green and that is: 3562

** Picture brain teasers** 9

We start at the top left with 8. Then we multiply each time by 4 and then add 4 again. The answer where you come from is: 592. (8 x 4 = 32 + 4 = 36 x 4 = 144 + 4 = 148 x 4 = 592.

** Picture brain teaser** 10

There is 1 square of 4 by 4 squares (the outside) = 1

There are 16 squares + 2 squares on the inside in the middle = 18, so total now 19.

Then from the top left we take 2 by 2 squares. We move 1 square to the right and then we can take 2 by 2 squares. We move one more time to the right and can take another 2 by 2 squares. So there are 3.

We repeat this by going down 1 square and do the same. So again 3.

And then we go down another 1 square and do the same again. So again 3. Total 9 more, so the total is now 28.

Then we are going to make 3 by 3 squares. You can do that in 4 different ways. So now add 32 squares.

And then we count the 8 very smallest squares you see in the middle column.

So there are a total of 40 squares.

** Picture brain teaser** 11

Each row and each column add up to 15. This means that an 8 is placed where the question mark is.

** Picture brain teaser** 12

There are a total of 8 O's

** Picture brain teaser** 13

** Picture brain teaser** 14

If the car is in box 1, then statement 1 and 2 are correct. And so the car is not in box 1 (because there was only one statement). If the car is in box 3, then statement 2 and 3 are correct. And so the car is not in box 3 either. The car is in box 2, because then only statement 3 is correct.

** Picture brain teaser** 15

There are 3 columns (from top to bottom) and 3 rows (from left to right) with balls. All balls drop 1 spot in the next picture. The bottom row will be mirrored back up again. But the ball on the right falls down 1 extra spot because there are only 2 balls in the right column. And so C is the correct answer. If you solve this one, you really are a topper, because this is 5 stars.

** Picture brain teaser** 16

If you have taken 3 socks, you are not sure if you already have 2 of the same colour. After all, there are 3 colours of socks and you can have 1 of each. If you take the 4th sock, you know for sure that you now have 2 of the same colour. So the answer is 4.

** Picture brain teaser** 17

The upper scale shows that the volleyball is 3 times as heavy as the billiard ball. For the sake of convenience, let us say that the volleyball is 3 kilos and the billiard ball 1 kilo.

On the middle scale, we see that 2 volleyballs are just as heavy as a billiard ball and a football. 2 volleyballs weigh 6 kilos and the billiard ball 1 kilo. So the football is 5 kilos.

On the lower scale we see on the left 10 kilos (2 football balls) and on the right 9 kilos (3 volleyballs). So 1 billiard ball is missing.

**18****Picture brain teaser**Take a good look at the 2nd dice. The red and blue shapes are diametrically opposed to the 3rd dice. So B is the correct answer.

** Picture brain teaser** 19

There are two right answers:

1: We take the example of the clock: 9 o'clock. That is 1. But also half past eight (well, actually a few minutes before half past eight, because the small hand is not exactly on the 8 at half past eight). So that is also 1. That makes a total of 2. At 10 o'clock the same happens, also 2x. For example, at every hour on a day, 2x there is a 90-degree angle. Since there are 24 hours in a day, it means that the 90-degree angle occurs 48 times. So the answer is 48 times.

2: Actually (thanks to Henk - a very observant puzzler) the answer must be slightly different. The clock is at 90 degrees at 9:00 and slightly before half past 8, at about 8:27. This repeats itself about every 33 minutes, not every 30 minutes, and 1440/33 ≈ 44, not 48.

So 9 o'clock, a little before half past 8; a little before 8, a little before half past 7; a little before 7. But then we are so much before half past 6 that we have to call it a quarter past 6, and then a quarter before 6; a little after 5, a little after half past 5; a little after 4, a little after half past 4, and so on.

**Picture brain teaser** 20

Each character is a number that is displayed twice next to each other, but mirrored the second time. The M is actually a 1 and another 1 (but then mirrored against each other). The next sign is a 2. The sign that is missing is a 6 and a mirrored 6, a kind of butterfly is what you will get.

**Picture brain teaser** 21

For convenience sake we assume there are 100 people. Out of 100 people, 20 people (20%) did not give a right answer. In other words, 80 people gave at least one correct answer.

75 out of these 80 people have question 1 right (75% of all 100 had question 1 right) . In other words, there are 5 people who don't have question 1 correct (but also don't have everything wrong).

There are (80-55=)25 people who didn't answer question 2 correctly but have 1 correct question.

So there are 80 - 5 - 25 = 50 people who answered both questions correctly. So answer D is correct.

**Picture brain teaser** 22

A ghost is 20 (60:3); A ghost plus 6 candies is 26, so each candy is 1. Third line: three candies plus 12 pumpkins makes 15. So every pumpkin is also 1.

Bottom line: 4 candies * 5 pumpkins (* means +) is 20. After that, 20 plus 20 is 40 (this should be under the question mark).

**Riddle 23**

If Frank is telling the truth, John would have lied about his claim that Peter is lying. So John would have to tell the truth, but then Frank cannot tell the truth. So Frank is lying.

If Peter is telling the truth, then his statement about Frank is wrong, because Frank is claiming that John is lying, whereas he is saying that Peter is lying. So Peter is lying too.

Then John is telling the truth.

**Riddle 24**

A coffin

**Riddle 25**

After 1 day he climbed 5 meters and after that night only 1 meter. On the 2nd day he climbed 5 meters, so he climbed a total of 6 meters. At night he descends 4 meters again. And so on. So after 15 days and nights he is at 15 meters. On the 16th day he climbs 5 meters and ..... he has reached the top :-). So 16 days.

**Riddle 26**

You turn switch 1 on, switch 2 on, but you turn it off after 5 minutes and leave switch 3 off. Then you go back after 5 minutes to check. 1 is on, 2 and 3 are off, but lamp 2 still glows.

**Riddle 27**

If it takes 2 painters 2 hours to do 2 rooms, then they take 4 hours to do 4 rooms and 6 hours to do 6 rooms. If you want to have 18 rooms painted in those 6 hours, you will eed 3 times as many painters than those 2, so 6 painters.

**Riddle 28**

Car A is the only one parked in such a way that they can quickly flee to the road. For Auto B and C, fleeing is less possible because they first have to drive backwards. So A.

**Riddle 29**

B is the sister-in-law of E.

**Riddle 30**

**Riddle 31**

This is a very tricky brain teaser. John has 7 and Harry 5. If John has one more he has twice as many (8 to 4) and if he has one less he has 6 and 6.

**Riddle 32**

1 is the right answer.

**Riddle 33**

The coloured boxes are always jumping. The large coloured squares go to the right and the small coloured squares go to the left. And so, the left half of the large square is coloured blue and only the upper left half of the inner small squares is coloured blue.

**Riddle 34**

The answer to this brain teaser is Tuesday.

**Picture brain teaser 36**

Fill the 3-litre bucket to the edge. Then empty the bucket into the 5-litre bucket. Then fill the 3-litre bucket again. Then pour it into the 5-litre bucket, until this bucket is filled to the top. (There is still 1 litre of liquid in the 3-litre bucket) Now empty the 5-litre bucket completely. Then you empty the 1 litre of liquid from the 3-litre bucket into the 5-litre bucket. Then you pour another full 3-litre bucket into the 5-litre bucket. This way you have a total of 4 litres of liquid in the 5-litre bucket.** **

**Picture brain teaser 37**Answer: spades, three, diamonds.

After the first two lines, you know that hearts should not be in first place nor is it in the code.

After line three, you know that it must contain clubs and spades. (Because hearts is not in it, and there are two right, but in the wrong place)

After line four, you know that there are no clubs in it. So you also know that the diamonds from the first row are therefore in the right place.

After line five you know that spades should be in the first place. Because, it has been wrong twice in previous lines. In line two you have 1 correct, but in the wrong place.

The only spot left is the middle one. So that's where the three should be. (Because otherwise, the 1 was in the right spot in line 2).

**Picture brain teaser 38**

Julian can only be the writer. Then David can only be the thief. Because Tom is not a doctor, he is the photographer. So James is the doctor.

**Picture brain teaser 39**

Follow these four steps to boil the egg for exactly 15 minutes:

- After bringing the pan with the egg to the boil, turn both hourglasses.
- Turn the 7-minute hourglass when it runs out.
- When the 11-minute hourglass is also empty four minutes later, turn the 7-minute hourglass over again.Now wait until the 7-minute hourglass is completely empty.
- This takes another four minutes, giving you exactly 15 minutes' cooking time.

**Picture brain teaser 40**Three daughters. 1x blond, 1x brown and 1x red

**Picture brain teaser 41**

If you say all the previous numbers out loud, you know what the next number should be. This is because each number is a verbal representation of the previous sequence. So we start here with 1, then the next number is (pronounced) "one one" or "11". The 11 is then again "two ones", or 21. And so you can go on. The dots will then read 13112221.

**Picture brain teaser 42**There are 3 boys who wear blue shirts.

And there are 2 children who are not girls and do not wear blue shirts. So 2 boys who do not wear blue shirts.

14 girls + 5 boys = 19

**Picture brain teaser 43**

Yes, the four of them can be on the other side in exactly 15 minutes. The group has to follow these three steps:

- First A and B cross the bridge and A brings back the torch. This takes 3 minutes.
- Next, C and D cross the bridge and B brings back the torch. This takes another 10 minutes.
- Finally, A and B cross the bridge together again. This takes another 2 minutes.

**Picture brain teaser 45**

59 days. If the water level doubles every day and the reservoir is full on day 60, this means, conversely, that it must have been half full on the previous day (and not on day 30)!

**Picture brain teaser 46**

The answer to this funny brain teaser is B

**Picture brain teaser 47**

The police asked him to come to the crime scene. He goes to the crime scene. When he obviously knows where this place is. So he is the murderer.

**Picture brain teaser 48**Turn the sheet in the other direction.

Then there is: 68199 + 19969 = 88168

**Picture brain teaser 49**

This picture puzzle needs a lot of thought.

If he doubles 1 water plant to 4, he will be busy for 2 days. Because 1 becomes 2 and then the next day 2 becomes 4.

So if he starts with 4 water plants, it will take him 2 days less. And so 30 - 2 = 28 days.

**Picture brain teaser 50**

Robin hood (namely, Rob is in ho od)

**Picture brain teaser 51**

Number 4. It is about the number of places where the sticks cross.

**Picture brain teaser 52**

Diagonally across the first plus you put a dash, so that it becomes a 4. 545 + 5 +5 = 555

**Picture brain teaser 53**

The number is always a repetition of the number +1. So 1 equals 12.

The result of 642 = 674523

**Picture brain teaser 54**

You first cut the cake twice, so that you have four equal pieces. Then you cut the cake horizontally, exactly in the middle of the cake.

**Picture brain teaser 55**

A = 57, B = 19. The sum is 57:19 = 3

**Picture brain teaser 56**

**Picture brain teaser 57**

Saturday: On Sunday, Jim speaks the truth, but he did not lie on Saturday. So it can't be Saturday. Sunday: Monday, Jim lies, he lied on Sunday. And that can be right. So it could be Sunday. Monday: Tuesday Jim lies, that he lied on Monday. But he wasn’t because he lied on Monday. So it can't be Monday. Tuesday: Wednesday is the same. So it can't be Tuesday either. Wednesday: Thursday Jim tells the truth, that he lied on Wednesday. That is possible, so it can be Wednesday. Thursday: Friday, Jim tells the truth, that he lied on Thursday, but on Thursday he doesn't lie. So it can't be Thursday. Friday: Saturday it is the same, so it can't be Friday either.

Then we go and see Judy: So it can only be Monday or Wednesday. Monday: On Tuesday, Judy speaks the truth, but she doesn't lie on Monday. So it can't be Monday. Wednesday: Thursday, Judy lies, and says that Wednesday was a lie. That is indeed a lie, so Wednesday.

So Wednesday is the correct answer.

**Picture brain teaser 58**

If 1.5 bakers bake 15 loaves in 1.5 days, it means that one baker would bake 10 loaves in the same time (1.5 days). If 1 baker bakes 10 loaves in 1.5 days, it means that 1 baker would only bake ⅔ of 15 loaves in one day. So the answer is ⅔ of 15 = 10.

**Picture brain teaser 59**1st row: ABC + ADDA = AEFA, so C =0, because C + A = A so C must be zero

2nd column: ADDA - EFF = FEH, so A=1, because FEH + EFF together can never be bigger than 1998.

3rd column: AEFA + BBG = BCAC, so B = 2, because a 4-digit number starting with 1 plus a 3-digit number produces a number starting with 2. We also know that G = 9, because (units) 1 + G = 0

If you fill in all the known digits, then you can calculate AEFA in the 3rd column, then you can also write down ACAE and EFF in the 2nd row. Then you can calculate AAHE in the first column. And ADDA in the 1st row can be calculated from the 1st row or from the 2nd column, because all the other numbers are known.
