Q:

Logical puzzle

You work at a fruit factory.
There are 3 crates in front of you. One crate contains only apples. One crate contains only oranges. The other crate contains both apples and oranges. And each crate is labeled. One reads "apples", one reads "oranges", and one reads "apples and oranges". But the labeling machine has gone crazy and is now labeling all boxes incorrectly. If you can only take out and look at just one of the pieces of fruit from just one of the crates, how can you label ALL of the crates correctly?

Answer

Our solution:


Take a piece of fruit from the "apples and oranges" crate. If it's an apple then you know that is the "apples" crate since ALL THE CRATES ARE LABELED INCORRECTLY. This means the crate marked "apples" must be "oranges" and the crate marked "oranges" must be "apples and oranges".

Q:

Find a 10-digit number, where the first figure defines the count of zeros in this number, the second figure the count of numeral 1 in this number etc. At the end the tenth numeral character expresses the count of the numeral 9 in this number.

Answer

Sum of all numerals must be ten because each numeral stands for the count of other numerals and because this number shall have ten numerals. Beginning to choose reasonable numerals for the first figure you can come across the correct number: 6210001000.
