Riddle.


17. In a slaughterhouse boss tells emplado :
You have to kill these 30 sheep in 15 days , killing at least one per day and always odd number .
Can the employee 's bidding your boss?

 


 

Solution


The problem asks us to kill at least one per day , starting to kill a sheep per day in 15 days 15 sheep are killed and we still have another 15 to kill.
If on any given day X kill sheep instead of one, and where X is an odd number , the total number of dead sheep that day increased by an even number.
As you can not get to 15 by adding even numbers , you can not kill the remaining 15 sheep raising an even number of dead sheep per day.
