They aren’t very smart, are they.

These guys are trashed. They keep calling the 105-pound person "Mom". Um, no, she's been identified as the daughter. The queen is the only mother. But our host tells them they're right. Well, no, they're wrong. She's the 90-pounder's sister, not his mother. Well, they COULD be right, if this is the Royal Family of the Kingdom of Appalachian Alabama.

Another thing that is "written out of" this problem is people getting into a basket and lowering themselves (or raising themselves) in a slow and orderly fashion by gripping the rope that is dangling from the other side of the pulley and impeding its progress through the pulley if they are descending or pulling it down from the pulley if they wish to rise. That's physically possible (although it takes a lot of strength) but it is WRITTEN OUT. One way we could do that is by making the pulley so wide that the two rope-ends hanging from it are not accessible to anyone in either bucket, or saying everyone has no hands or arms, but an easier way to do it is just saying that such methods are not part of the puzzle. The idea is to make this about math, not about engineering. It's a math problem. It's not a contest to find implausibility-errors in a movie (for which the non-use of the rope-manipulating methods would be a valid point -- but not here).

A lot of Comments say this is a variation of chicken/fox/sack-of-corn puzzle, BUT, they said that in the video too (with the flub "bridge-crossing" instead of "river-crossing" but bridge works too because you can have a bride that is so flimsy the farmer can only carry one item across at a time), so why mention it?

This feels like a variation on the Raft/Seed/Chicken/Fox puzzle.

This one was pretty easy for me

I swear I'm a genius with a sheet of paper in front of me.
Kris Mueller (1 year ago)
I thought of a quicker way .. why does the cannon ball have to be in the basket, just drop it to the ground.
Kris Mueller (1 year ago)
Scam School the cannon ball won't die if it falls 😁

That’s like “solving” a math puzzle by setting the page on fire.

I've played enough Bioware games to recognize a Tower-of-Hanoi-style puzzle when I see one.

It pretty easy I figure out in no more than 1 minute
罗逍然 (1 year ago)
the thing with lots of these puzzles is that you have to work it backwards from the last step.
hi! ok. (1 year ago)
Im a geniua i figured it out! And i am 12
ExodaCrown (1 year ago)
I got it right, though I think mine is different than their's. First, send the cannonball down. The kid goes, once down he removes the cannonball from the basic then the daughter goes down. The kid goes up and gets off at the top. The daughter then puts the cannonball back in the basket with her. Then the queen goes down and the daughter gets out at the top. The queen gets out and lets the cannonball fall to the ground again. Then you let the kid go down and repeat the process to get the daughter down. Once the daughter and queen are down they put the cannonball back into the basket so the kid can finally get down.
Gigi Rauchut (1 year ago)
After reading the comments I feel really stupid. And I'm 13, I should've figured this out!
Kazutoification (2 years ago)
Paused 3:08 Cannonball goes down first. 90 goes down next, then he steps out so the cannonball is back down on the ground. He removes the cannonball and gets in. After, 105 goes in, thus she switches places with 90. 105 and 75 are on the ground, 195 and 90 are in the towers. From here, 105 takes the cannonball into her basket and 90 switches places with 195. 195 descends safely to the ground. The next part is just a repeat of what happened earlier. 90 and 105 both get out at the same time 195. Cannonball goes down first. 90 goes down next, then he steps out so the cannonball is back on the ground. He removes the cannonball and gets in. After, 105 goes in, thus she switches places with 90. Finally, 105 places the cannonball into the basket and 90 comes back down. Unfortunately, the cannonball comes careening to its death.

7:03 How did that cannonball jump out of the basket atop the tower on its own?
1Axxonn1 (2 years ago)
would it be safe to ask about the rescuers weight? didnt say there wasnt a 4th person helping
matrixphijr (2 years ago)
So easy. Key: C: Cannonball - 75 lb. B: Boy - 90 lb. G: Girl - 105 lb. Q: Fatass Queen - 195 lb. 1 - C in. C to bottom. 2 - B in. B to bottom, C to top. 3 - C out at top, G in. G to bottom, B to top. Both exit. 4 - C in. C to bottom. 5 - G in with C at bottom, Q in at top. Q to bottom, G & C to top. 6 - G & Q both exit. (Q HAS ESCAPED!) C to bottom. 7 - B in. B to bottom, C to top. 8 - C out at top, G in. G to bottom, B to top. Both exit. (G HAS ESCAPED!) 9 - C in. C to bottom. 10 - B in. B to bottom, C to top. B exits. (B HAS ESCAPED!) 11 - C falls to bottom, crushing and killing all characters. C exits on its own, as it is clearly sentient, since none of these characters are able to lift it. (C HAS ESCAPED!)
Sacha op den Dries (2 years ago)
how can I (a 14 yo girl)get this in 20 seconds while they can't do it in 5 minutes?
cat guitarist (2 years ago)
I got a different answer
Jim Schuler (2 years ago)
Way too many moves; this can be done in four. 1) Lower the cannon ball. 2) Lower the child bring up cannon ball. 3) Lower the daughter bring up child. 4) The daughter goes and gets a ladder.
shadow genius (2 years ago)
Or, send the cannon ball down, then kid down, the kid goes to the nearest village and gets help
John-Paul Mitchell (2 years ago)
I would speculate that some of the problem was understanding the mechanics and goal of the puzzle. How long did the explanation and the solving take without editing?
Juan Juan (2 years ago)
Couldn't they through the cannonball out the window
Brodie Knight (2 years ago)
You could also just toss the cannon ball down into the basket and save yourself some real time
gordan2015 (2 years ago)
I found a different solution. You send the cannon ball down first then the kid, then take the cannonball out, then the mom goes in, then kid gets out, then mom gets out, cannonball gets it in, mom hops in with cannonball, then queen hops in, then mom and cannonball get out, then the queen gets out, then the cannonball goes back in then the kid, then cannonball gets taken out then mom goes in, then kid gets out, then mom gets out, then the cannonball gets put back in, then kid gets in, then the kid gets out and joins the queen and mom at the bottom.
Eric Stearns (2 years ago)
Drop ball Drop boy Take out ball Drop girl Take out boy and girl Drop ball Add girl Drop queen So now the queen is at the bottom Take everything out Drop ball Drop boy Take out ball Drop girl Take out everything Drop ball Drop boy Take out boy Ball drops itself Now everything is out! Even the ball! Now to finish the video.

That was easy to solve. GIMME SOMETHING HARDER BRIAN

I was going to say to throw the cannonball down rather than use the basket.
Robertlavigne1 (2 years ago)
Time to get technical on the wording. Brian states that if there is a difference of >15lbs the speed of the descent will be so great that you would die. Remember the ol' elephant and feather thought experiment. The speed of the descent will be the same no matter the mass of the baskets. Speed isn't the killer here, its force. Force = Mass * Acceleration. So when you say this problem to anal physics people, make sure to state that if there is a difference of >15lbs the force of impact will be so great that you would die.
Benjamin Wass (2 years ago)
this was a lot easier then most of the puzzles you do

By far the easiest puzzle I've seen on this channel, surprised they didn't get it but its always different when you're in the hot seat in front of the camera.

Rowen Kingston (2 years ago)
i figured that out myself less than halfway through the video
Legendary1K988 (2 years ago)
that was a really easy one

you could also just drop the cannonball off the side at that breakthrough moment
Sham Maárif (2 years ago)
As I was watching this. I had multiple "OH MY GOD" moments... they were the 'oh my god how could you not know how to solve it from this point!?' while walking away from the screen and facepalming and almost tearing my hair out
Cody's Funhouse (2 years ago)
tho the rules didnt state, that they where STUCK in the tower... just said the only comms for the top of the tower, was a rope pully...escape.. i would have just said" they all walk out of the front door.. because the story do's not say they where locked in the tower =I

@RuhtraSelim Just find a rock of +- < 15 lbs diff rock and put it into the child's basket before letting her out. Easy.

I actually paused it and got it right. It took me a while because i was too lazy to draw anything so i just tried to remember every step ive done so far.

This is actually the first scam school puzzle I've figured out myself!
Sam (2 years ago)
This is a classic binary puzzle, similar to the stacking rings. If you realize that, it's easy to solve. If you don't, it's moderately difficult.

RIDDLE: 1. The Dutch king rules over Holland. 2. The king lives in the country he rules over. 3. The king doesn't live in Holland. How can this be?
David Davison (2 years ago)
The Dutch king rules over two countries? Or the king is different than the Dutch king? Or maybe Holland is the name of a city.
Angel Gallegos (2 years ago)
He better not just drop the cannonball

What if the queen put on some weighht?
Tyler Campbell (2 years ago)
i saw you on hacking the sysetem because i even made that dissposable camera tasser
Anthony Thomas (2 years ago)
this was extremely easy lol, not even a challenge tbh
(2 years ago)
And the cannon ball fell on their head the three of them died
yourcurtainsareugly (2 years ago)
How was this hard at all? Once the problem is posed, you can immediately see that all the weights are tuned to precisely fit the 15 pound rule, and at every decision point there is only 1 move that will move an extra 15 pounds down, or the cannonball. On the other hand, as an American, I must assert that royalty is useless, expensive, outdated, and undemocratic. Therefore, I wish all the royal family a swift doom.
Enriko (2 years ago)
This puzzle was way to easy i don't know how they didn't figure it out ...
Demki (2 years ago)
Reminds me of the Towers of Hanoi
uiuiuiseraph (2 years ago)
Oh I had it different: After dropping the cannonball the 2nd time, I sent down the kid(in exchange for the cannonball) again. Then I sent mom+kid(195) up for the father(195). And then again: cannonball, kid(for c.b.), mom(for kid), cannonball, kid(for c.b.).
uiuiuiseraph (2 years ago)
Oh come on.....maybe if.... yeah... got me. :/

how does the pulley system work if the weights are equal?

Haven't seen past the mom and the kid yet. But I suppose you can throw the cannon ball down without a basket
