It’s pretty simple: I will post a puzzle, and then when somebody solves that puzzle, I will post the next one, and they get a point. This isn’t a continuous; this will end at some point, so there will be a winner.

So, the first puzzle:
**Puzzle 1: Symbols**
Each symbol stands for a number. The number at the end of each row and column stands for what number you get when you add the value of the symbols together. What is the value of each symbol?

Correct!
**Puzzle 3: Baguettes**
A French baker is cycling through the streets of his village with a basket of fresh baguettes. He is stopped by one of his best customers, who buys half of all of his baguettes, and half a loaf. Then the local priest stops him and orders the same: half of his stock, and half a loaf. Finally, he is stopped by a young boy, who wants the same: Half of the stock, and half a loaf. When he gets home, the baker is delighted: he has sold all of his bread, and hasn’t had to break a single baguette! How many loaves did he start with?

Also, Mete, that does not work; baker did not sell all the bread
