Mathematics is a super challenging subject. Whether you are or not, but when we were in school, we all had a strange fear of the subject. Even students who never scored less than 95% marks in all subjects worked day and night and harder in mathematics compared to other subjects. This is the nature of mathematics. It can be the most challenging topic but also the most interesting. With this thought, let’s start today with our exciting set of math puzzles.

Math Riddles with Answers:

Mathematical riddle 1:

Henry, the magician, has a unique die that he uses for his magic tricks. Six faces of the die are marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 5 respectively. Note that the magician’s die does not have any 6s on either face. If Henry calls one of the volunteers from the audience and the volunteer rolls 3 of those dice in a row, what do you think is the probability of getting a total sum of 14 on the top face?

HERE ARE THE OPTIONS:

- The chances are between 20% and 25%.
