Bell ringer #76

Colin the Clown, one of the carnival entertainers, looks after two large tanks of paint which are used to make fairground signs. One of the tanks contains red paint, the other green.

Unfortunately, Colin has had a terrible week, because the other clown has been ill, and Colin has had to work so many extra hours he could hardly keep his eyes open. As a result, he has made a lot of silly mistakes.

On Monday he took a bucket of red paint but poured it all back into the green tank. On Tuesday, he took two buckets from the green tank and poured it back into the red tank. And on Wednesday, he did the same as Monday.

Given that the red tank is smaller than the green, which tank now contains the most paint of the other color?


Answer

Answer

  • The net effect is that the volume of both tanks has remained the same, the same amount of red paint and green paint has been put into each tank so the answer is neither.
