# Picture brain teasers

Every week we post new picture brain teasers on our Facebook page. A lot of people like to puzzle with 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.

Because there is nothing so annoying as a puzzle you can' solve and 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 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 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 word 'thousand years'.

** Picture brain teasers** 2

40 + 40 + 28 + 28 = 136 pieces

** Picture brain teasers** 3

The probability of the first die 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 die 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.

Answer 5 (3 is closed)

** Picture brain teasers** 6

There is a C between the G's.

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 colors on the first row with the colors on the third row, you'll see that one color is different, namely yellow has become orange. And instead of 2 colors that are good (but not in the right place), suddenly there are 3. So conclusion: yellow is not in there, orange is.

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

- Purple is good 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

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 now total 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 at the place of the question mark an 8 is placed.

** Picture brain teaser** 12

There are a total of 8 O's

** 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 die. The red and blue shapes are diametrically opposed to the 3rd die. So B is the correct answer.

** Picture brain teaser** 19

We approve 2 responses:

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 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, 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.

**Riddle 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 you get then.

**Riddle 21**

We charge for the convenience of having 100 people. Out of 100 people, 20 people (20%) did not give a good answer. In other words, 80 people gave at least one correct answer.

75 out of these 80 people have question 1 good (75% of all 100 had question 1 good) . 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.

**Riddle 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 comes to 15. So every pumpkin is also 1.

Bottom line: 4 candies * 5 pumpkins (* goes for +) 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. 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 15 meters. The 16th day he climbs 5 meters and ..... he is above :-). 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 after 5 minutes to watch. 1 is on, 2 and 3 are off, but lamp 2 still glows.

**Riddle 27**

If 2 painters do 2 hours over 2 rooms, then they do 4 hours over 4 rooms and 6 hours over 6 rooms. If you want to have 18 rooms painted in those 6 hours, then you need 3 times as many painters than those 2, so 6 painters.

**Riddle 28**

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, of the large square the left half is coloured blue and of the inner small squares only the upper left half is coloured blue.
