Congratulations to MAJ Lingenfelser from 88th RSC. He was chosen from the correct answers and won a HOOAH shirt and can cooler from MWR. There are 3 black hats and 2 white hats in a box. Three men (we will call them Tom, Bob, and Bill) each reach into the box and place one of the hats on his own head. They cannot see what color hat they have chosen. The men are situated in a way that Tom can see the hats on Bob and Bill's heads, Bob can only see the hat on Bill's head and Bill cannot see any hats. When Tom is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing, he says no. When Bob is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing he says no. When Bill is asked if he knows the color of the hat he is wearing he says yes and he is correct. What color hat and how can this be? There is no play on words and there are no tricks. ANSWER: Tom must not see two white hats on Bob or Bill, or he would know his own hat must be black (since there are only two white hats). So Tom’s answer establishes that at least one of the hats on Bob and Bill is black. Therefore, Bob knows that he and Bill are either both wearing black, or one is wearing black and one is wearing a white hat. If he sees that Bill is wearing a white hat, then he would know that his own hat had to be black. But Bob instead says he doesn’t know what color hat he is wearing, which means Bill’s hat is not white and must be black. Therefore, Bill knows he is wearing a black hat.
