The Blue-Eyed Enigma. Emma la pasticciera, well-known lover of mathematical puzzles and problems of logic (Emma’s Official Page) after a long study decided to select the most beautiful logical-mathematical games of each time proposing separately also the relative solutions. These are questions and riddles that require both logical and creative skills to be solved. The perfect mathematical puzzle must propose a simple situation to explain and a solution just as easy to understand but very complicated to find, often at the limit of the impossible for an average mind.
In this page we present the blue-eyed puzzle a mathematical problem that will make you crazy because it does not seem to give all the necessary elements to be able to solve it. It seems… 😉
THE BLUE-EYED ENIGMA
