Three Coin Consideration (Posted on 2023-03-03) Difficulty: 3 of 5
• Jason is travelling to an exotic country which has three types of coins.
• Each coin has a different value (5, 10, or 15 units), a different color (red, green, or blue), and a different shape (round, square, and triangular).
• Jason has precisely one of each of the three types of coin in his pocket.

A) If Jason randomly selects one coin, it will either be red, a circle, or the 5 unit coin.
B) If he randomly selects another coin, it will either be blue, a triangle, or the 10 unit coin.
C) The triangular coin is worth more than the square coin.

Determine the color, shape, and value of each coin.

Start by listing all the ways you can have decreasing value 15, 10, 5; and shapes such that triangle is worth more (higher on the list) than square.  There are only three ways:

15 Triangle 
10 Square 
 5 Circle  but 5 can't be circle, so this triplet is out.

15 Circle
10 Triangle but triangle can't be 10, so this triplet is out.
 5 Square 

15 Triangle Red
10 Circle Green
 5 Square Blue
