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.
SCOREBOARD:
Jaskaran2000: 6
GottaAskTheMan: 3
igotnousername: 3
Pulsaris: 2
funiax: 1

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?



But there isn’t any number at the end.

Correct! I’ll add a scoreboard to the original post.
Puzzle 2: Maths symbols
Each symbol stands for a different whole number, and none of them are less than 1. In order to reach the correct total at the end of each line, work out the correct value of each symbol.



Red Triangle: 36
Pink Star: 8
Green Square: 28
Purple Heart: 7

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?

49 loaves of bread.
Thats one answer, but what is the fewest he could have started with?



The answer is 7!
Also, Mete, that does not work; baker did not sell all the bread

Puzzle 5: Line up
Imagine you have this puzzle in front of you in real life: real beer, real beer glasses etc. By touching just one glass, can you make the glasses alternate fullemptyfullemptyfullempty?



Pour from second glass to fifth glass, that didn’t even require thinking, just a bit of trial and error =\

Correct. Yeah, that was a kinda weak puzzle :p
Puzzle 6: Number pyramid

Same.



Replaced 552 with 522, because pretty sure that’s a mistake.
