Old Farmer Palmer has a herd of cows, but he always seems to forget how many animals there are. When he counts them he just makes sure he can see 6 cows from each window of his house.
One night, however, Russell the Rustler took away half of the herd. Farmer Palmer didn’t notice for ages because the next morning he could still see 6 cows from each window. How was it done? Riddle Answer
You have 8 balls numbered 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15. Select 3 balls and put them into the circles such that the sum of the numbers on them add up to 30.
