In this dystopian world, your resistance

group is humanity’s last hope. Unfortunately, you’ve all been captured

by the tyrannical rulers and brought to the ancient colosseum

for their deadly entertainment. Before you’re thrown into the dungeon, you see many numbered hallways

leading outside. But each exit is blocked by

an electric barrier with a combination keypad. You learn that one of you will be allowed

to try to escape by passing a challenge while everyone else will be fed to

the mutant salamanders the next morning. With her perfect logical reasoning,

Zara is the obvious choice. You hand her a concealed audio transmitter

so that the rest of you can listen along. As Zara is led away, you hear her footsteps echo

through one of the hallways, then stop. A voice announces

that she must enter a code consisting of three positive whole numbers

in ascending order, so the second number is greater than

or equal to the first, and the third is greater than

or equal to the second. She may ask for up to three clues, but if she makes a wrong guess, or says anything else, she’ll be thrown back into the dungeon. For the first clue, the voice says

the product of the three numbers is 36. When Zara asks for the second clue, it tells her the sum of the numbers is the same as the number

of the hallway she entered. There’s a long silence. You’re sure Zara remembers

the hallway number, but there’s no way for you to know it, and she can’t say it outloud. If Zara could enter the passcode

at this point, she would, but instead, she asks for the third clue, and the voice announces that the largest

number appears only once in the combination. Moments later, the buzz of the electric

barrier stops for a few seconds, and you realize that Zara has escaped. Unfortunately, her transmitter

is no longer in range, so that’s all the information you get. Can you find the solution? Pause on the next screen

to work out the solution. 3 2 1 You’re worried about the fact that you

don’t know Zara’s hallway number, but you decide to start

from the beginning anyways. From the first clue, you work out all of

the eight possible combinations that come out to a product of 36. One of these must be right,

but which one? Now comes the hard part. Even though you don’t know which number

you’re looking for, you decide to work out the sum

of each combination’s three numbers. That’s when it hits you. All but two of the sums are unique, and if the hallway number had matched

any of these, Zara would have known the correct

combination right then and there without asking for the third clue. Since she did ask for the clue, the hallway number must have

matched the only sum that appears more than once in the list: thirteen. But which of the two combinations

that add up to thirteen is correct: 1,6,6, or 2,2,9? That’s where the third clue comes in. Since it tells us that the largest

number must be unique, 2,2,9 must be the code. When night falls, you and the others

escape through hallway thirteen and rejoin Zara outside. You’ve freed yourselves through

math and logic. Now it’s time to free

the rest of the world.

Bruh what if Zara wanted to double check her answer just in case?

Also, who said you get one chance to enter a code? If there's only 8 things that multiply to 36, just go to the right door for each one and enter it.

These guys were cruel enough to feed you to the salamanders…

They know your team is good at math…(Why are you here if you didn't at least try to work it out ?No offence)

Still they let Zara a chance at freedom.,,

how did i solve the einstein one but not this one….

2:18 Is me when my math teacher announced that we have a quiz in class and I forgot to study XD

It’s 1 w e

BlackHair's long braid is like a tail.

Lesson :

Don't be a hero so you don't need to solve riddles that involves math and logic"Described as the most easiest riddle"

me :

Ya don't say?it should ave been 2 3 6 2*3 is 6 6*6 is 36 36 is the largest number it happens once

title: can you solve–

me:

n o"i like pumpkin pie" 😂

Mutant salamanders?

What about mutant poop balls? Thats way more interesting.

First TED-Ed riddle I ever solved….. Noice!

My name is Zahara

why am i so proud of myself for figuring this out

2 2 9 ?????

but…

3 X 3 X 4 could be correct :C

I assumed the digits could only be 0-9 (like a typical number pad). Luckily the solution still fell within that so I still got it right. 😅

Dude this is so easy compared to your other ones!

How am i gonna find out the answer when i cant even understand the actual question??

G

I swear some of these problems have plot holes or strange logic.

This is the only riddle I can solve in 3 mins

334

Or not

The right answer is a question..

What do you mean? An African or European swallow.

these arent mathematical riddles, its more like pay attention to the details and the wording, he says the 3rd number is unique which means the first 2 numbers are the same, and the sums of 2 combinations r the same, but no duplicates in any way for the 3rd number

Sugar…spice…and everything nice… These were the ingredients chosen to create this riddle. But Professor YouTube accidentally added an EXTRA INGREDIENT to the concoction….ADVERTISING TIME.

And that’s how the profitable inter-web WAS BORN!

Who else gets it?

I actually got this one right! This is the first time I have 😀

This was ez

I worked to 2x3x6 and settled.

I got it right

2 2 9 in hallway 13

i’ll check once i finish the video lol

You said the numbers are in ascending order. That means a<b<c. Then how can the numbers be 2,2,9 because that means 2 numbers are equal and they are not in ascending order. Am i getting something wrong ?

“You freed yourselves from math and logic, now it’s time to free the rest of the world”

Sounds like when you have just passed Math test

It's 229 I think

Edit: Yay first Ted ed riddle I solved

What if she forgot the hallway number

Yay I got it right

Compared to the others this one was really easy. Just basic math and logic. The others are confusing and weird.

uh ted ed there is error you made with script

Yey! Finally got one right 😂

Tomorrow’s my regents exam and I’m watching this ok,,,

These riddles are full of antiwhite racism if you look at the character portrayals episode to episode

02:45 that's mistake you were telling 3 digit passcode but 3 of them are of 4 digits

i dont get it?? this riddle only works if the answer is 13?? if it would be 3 3 4 = 10 and zara would never ask for the 3. clue the two in the dungeon would be screwed? even with the clue the lagest number must be unique the 4 in 3 3 4 is unique

Who else got it?

I got it right! Lol yes

Ant-man to the rescue

easyy!

"In this dystopian world, you and your resistance group-"

Shows 3 10 year old kids. Me: Seems legit.

I got it with a fluke 😂

But how did zara know it wasn't one of the other codes that didn't add up to 13?

“A concealed audio transmitter*

boi

its poking out her hair like a sticc

I did it! i did it!

Way too simple!!!!!

Math + Logic

Lock me again please!

Meh just call da avengers or da justice league

Good!!

Jeej, my first self- solved riddle😁

Okay I think it’s in hallway 16 and I think the code is 1-3-12

Edit: I’m wrong😥

i don't got the right answer HAHA!

Finally I’ve actually solved a Ted Ed riddle.

I feel accomplished

just move the transmitter lololo

Zara is selfish

Zara DESTROYS dictators with MATH and LOGIC

I solved

0:49

Illusion 100

Sneak 100

The only riddle so far that i was able to answer….

Lol my name is zarrah just spelt differently 😂

2 2 9

To the one who said zara should have answered wrong on purpose so she could get thrown back to the dungeon… how did you know that zara will be thrown in the same ground / floor / spot as the others?

I still dont get it why 13. 🙁

i dint know that people could fly

Cudnt the answer also b 148?

I'm losing my brain

What if she entered a different hallway with other things being same. Then the other two were damned

I swear to god, they just take math problems or lessons and add elements to make it a ‘riddle’.

Can you all just not solve the riddle by coming to the salamander? You will be pushed up to the salamanders and fly.

I THOUGHT THE NUMBERS HAD TO FOLLOW EACH OTHER

If those heroes can't fight with the salamanders how can they save the world

yay, i finally solved a ted-ed riddle.

Easy

Who else never does the riddle and watches just for entertainment😂

👇🏼

42? Hmmmm…..

::((((( cmon! it says the SUM of the 3 numbers no number x times :S , also TTnTT what’s the meaning of “unique number” 😭

This was …..

To under

I would’ve just been dragon food 🤷🏿♀️

I got it right😂

Welcome to the very first riddle I've solved. I'm happy.

I did the riddle, kinda ez tbh

Bruh if you had superpowers just blast out of the dungeon smh

I didn't even get the riddle.

If I were Zara, I’d just ask for the third riddle just to give my partners more information

Same as mathematician riddle. Also, is 229 an ascending order?

Finally a puzzle I managed to solve. YAYYY💀

There’s another riddle that follows the same method but presented in a harder way:

2 mathematicians are talking and one creates a bet for the other that he can’t figure out the age of his three daughters with the following information:

-The product of their ages is 72

– The sum of their ages is the number of the house across the street

“It’s not possible” says the mathematician

– The eldest likes chocolate

“Got it” says the mathematician

What are the ages of his daughters?

Meh i solved it in 3 mins only because 2x2x9=36
