Wrong Place, Right Place (Posted on 2003-11-17) Difficulty: 3 of 5
One person comes up to another person beside his bike. "Can I use your bike?" he asks. The person by the bike replies, "Only if you figure out the combination to my bike lock, which is made up of 4 different numbers from 1 through 8. You can guess 3 numbers."

He guessed 1235, 4721, and 3862. All three were answered with "One number in the combination is in the wrong place, and another is in the right place. The other two aren't in the combination."

The guesser was puzzled and asked "Is the number divisible by 7?" The person with the bike answered this question and after thinking for a while, the guesser told him the combination. What is the combination?

Dear Silver Kinght and Charlie,,,,, | Comment 17 of 35 |
We are really going to have to play some chess !! (This is no bull...) I am quite the Internet chess player. On my favorite website, my rating approaches that of Gary Kasparov. I win about 98% of my games. Two of my recent victims were a guy who had tied for 2nd place in the 2nd World Open in 1986 (I dispatched him in 26 moves), and another who had tied for 2nd in the 2002 Joseph Ileto Memorial Open. And you know what? I didn't break a sweat in either of these games. Pretty impressive, don't you agree?
