Monthly Puzzler – July

Picture

We here at Athlinks believe in a strong healthy mind as well as a strong healthy body. With that stated, each month we will have a puzzler for you to solve.We will provide the answer the following month (2nd or 3rd of each month). All you need to do is send your answer to us via email by the 23rd of each month with the subject line “Puzzler” and then all correct answers will have a chance to win one of our cool Athlinks water bottles! Winners will be selected at random.Good luck…Here’s the first puzzler:

You own a farm and have raised 25 racehorses. Each horse runs at a different constant pace. When the horses race they will always run at the same pace no matter how many times they race. You are trying to find your three fastest horses. You do not have a clock of any kind to time the horses, and you can only race five horses against each other at a time. What is the minimum number of races you need to conduct in order to find your three fastest racehorses.
