People are calling this SAT math question the 'meanest test problem ever' — see if you can solve it A Quora thread of difficult SAT math questions included one described as the "meanest test problem ever." Can you figure it out?

Now, you can take your problem- solving skills to the next level with a riddle that Albert Einstein invented himself. The story goes that Einstein wrote this complicated logic puzzle when he was a young man, and he estimated that only two percent of the people who tried to solve it would

Einstein ` s Riddle . There is a street with five houses all in a row. Each house has a person with a different name and each house is painted a different colour. Here are the clues to help you solve the puzzle (we`ve jazzed up the names a bit from the original, just to make things interesting)

There’s nothing like a good riddle to stimulate your mind and give you an excuse to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes. Sure, the thrill of solving puzzles may not give you the adrenaline rush of a skydive, but regularly doing logic and crossword puzzles can keep your brain young as you age. And they’re just a lot of fun.

Now, you can take your problem-solving skills to the next level with a riddle that Albert Einstein invented himself. The story goes that Einstein wrote this complicated logic puzzle when he was a young man, and he estimated that only two percent of the people who tried to solve it would successfully do so.

Einstein 'puzzle' solved as missing page emerges in new trove

Einstein 'puzzle' solved as missing page emerges in new trove An Albert Einstein "puzzle" has been solved thanks to a missing manuscript page emerging in a trove of his writings newly acquired by Jerusalem's Hebrew University, officials announced Wednesday. The handwritten page, part of an appendix to a 1930 paper on the Nobel winner's efforts towards a unified field theory, was discovered among the 110-page trove the university's Albert Einstein archives received some two weeks ago. Hebrew University unveiled the collection to coincide what would have been Einstein's 140th birthday on March 14.

Only 2 percent of people can solve Einstein ’ s Riddle . You probably just guessed to answer this math riddle , which is fine, but you can also work it out algebraically.

But, according to popular history, Einstein created the original version when he was a child and only 2 percent of people can solve it. Five people live in five differently colored houses with their five different pets, enjoy different types of coffee, and use different modes of transportation.

While there isn’t any solid evidence to confirm that Einstein created it—and somehow prophesied the exact number of people to get it right—it’s still a mind-bending puzzle. (Doing some of these weird brain puzzles can make you smarter, too.)

Here’s the setup: There are five houses, each painted a different color. In each house lives a person with a different nationality. These five owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same cigar, or drink the same beverage.

The question is, who owns the fish?

Here are the clues:

  • The Brit lives in the red house
  • The Swede keeps dogs as pets
  • The Dane drinks tea
  • The green house is on the left of the white house
  • The green house’s owner drinks coffee
  • The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
  • The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
  • The man living in the center house drinks milk
  • The Norwegian lives in the first house
  • The man who smokes blends lives next to the one who keeps cats
  • The man who keeps horses lives next to the man who smokes Dunhill
  • The owner who smokes BlueMaster drinks beer
  • The German smokes Prince
  • The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
  • The man who smokes blend has a neighbor who drinks water

Take some time and think it over. Draw out each house. Make a chart for each category, if you want to get really detailed. (Trust us, you do.)
