There are ten horses, but only nine stables.
- You can’t put 2 horses in the same stable.
- You can’t make another stable.
- You can’t split a stable in half.
How do you fit all the horses inside?
This is a play on words. There are actually nine letters called “ten horses”.
So, if these are the stables [ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ][ ], then you place the ten horses like this: [t][e][n][h][o][r][s][e][s]
