 Very Easy Logic Problems Where must dracula be
 Wed Jan 23, 2013 6:11 pm  by Logic_Newbie There is one and only one Dracula This Dracula is locked in three and only three caskets One is solid red, one is solid yellow, one is solid blue The caskets have inscriptions Red says, Dracula is here (meaning inside the casket) Yellow says, Dracula is not here (not inside the casket) Blue says, Dracula is not in the red casket At most one inscription is true Where must Dracula be
 Sat Jan 26, 2013 9:31 pm  by MathMad Yellow. If at most one inscription is true, then either: 1. There are no TRUE statements 2. There is exactly one TRUE statement. Inscription on the red and blue cannot be both true or both false, since one is negation of the other. ==> There is exactly one TRUE statement. So either the inscription on the Red or Blue is true ==> Inscription on the Yellow one is false. ==> The dracula must be in Yellow. Inscription on Red is FALSE; Inscription on Yellow is FALSE Inscription on Blue is TRUE
