**Welcome to the forum.**

Some puzzlers like to make a simple thing complicated just to make it hard. The "As I was going to St Ives" puzzle is an example.

So is Lemonink.

The amount transferred is irrelevant. Let's say we have a glass with 100mL lemonade and a second with 100mL of ink.

Start tipping liquid from one to the other in any way you like and as many transfers as you like. Stop when the first glass has exactly 100mL of liquid in some mixture. There's no way we can know how much is lemonade so let's say it has x mL of lemonade. As it has 100 altogether there must be 100 - x mL of ink.

The second glass must also have 100mL altogether as long as we didn't spill or drink (!) any. How much is lemonade? Well we know where x units is so the second glass must have 100 - x mL of lemonade. And as there are 100mL altogether in that glass there must be x mL of ink.

So in the first glass lemonade : ink = x : 100-x and in the second ink : lemonade = x : 100 -x

I did read your explanation, but I got totally lost half way through. Sorry.

]]>I like the second batch as well.

Hi Bob

Both solutions to the Matchic puzzle seem acceptable, but only with that wording and solution is it an original puzzle.

Sorry, but what are you awaiting?

]]>Thanks for the puzzles. I'm still working through.

I've got to "It Must Be Matchic Puzzle"

Couldn't you have six equal matches in a tetrahedral format ?

"Hilda the Builder"

You could re-word this to ask for the least number of bricks. That way, just one answer.

But

]]>For the "Sticker-bility" puzzle your help solution is correct and there is only one solution to it.

But if you did not give any help then there are 74 solutions to the puzzle below. In case someone mentions that.

Thanks, those are very nice puzzles.

]]>Also mentioned matches don't have to be same length, thanks anonimnystefy.

Will post more puzzles when I can.

]]>In the Path Plodding Puzzle another route is

start, finish, F, C, G, start, C, B, A, D,F,E,A, finish.

]]>Circling the square problem I believe is correct. Would you consider mentioning that geogebra can create these shapes and make this problem easier to solve than by cutting.

In the solution you might try putting a picture of the answer which makes a convincing display.

]]>I like those. The hermit puzzle is classical Fermi question.
