since you said its misleading I'm going to guess a different kind of answer... I'm going to say that you don't need to pull any from the barrell because there are already pairs in the barrell so therefore there is no use for you to pull any out, I hope that makes some sense... but that's my guess


Within a room you have a barrel full of water. Inside the barrel within the water are 50 red socks and 50 blue socks.

As you approach the barrel and peer down into the water, the lights go out and it is pitch black. You cannot see a thing and cannot find your way out of the room.

As you begin to become overtaken by panic, you hear a voice that asks in a mocking tone "How many socks must you pull from the barrel before you obtain a pair of the same color?" The voice also states that the right answer will illuminate the room allowing you to find your way out.

Nope. This is what is misleading.

I would also say two, but not because it is dark. The reason is to obtain a pair of the same color you only need to pull out 2 socks (one pair) of the same color, the voice did not specify that you must do this selection in the dark. 


Still.....nope.

i have no idea, i know 3 would do it, theres only 2 colors of socks so either way you will get a pair if you take out 3. *shrug* 


HURRAH, FOR PYRO.... the answer is three.

You know Pyr, I would have never thought of it from this angle. Really good answer, but a key word in the puzzle was "obtain".

Good job all,

can you explain why it is 3? what's getting me is to "obtain a pair of the same color". since we are dealing with probability, nothing should be certain.

C'mon Hobo! Keep up with stuff! What's the answer to this one?! And how about the rests of them that haven't been answered? I believe Pyro has a bunch out there too!

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

I sure can explain.

If you have 50 red socks and 50 blue socks and you pull out 3 socks, you can only get two socks of the same color with a kicker or all three the same color. No matter what order you pull them in three socks will leave you with a pair of the same color.

So you can still pull out two and it is probable you could already have a match
right

Jon Stewart takes on crossfire. If you havent seen this, it's killer. We didn't stop laughing till the end.

Be forwarned, Jon Stewart swears twice, there's some mild sexual content, and some mild political content

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.
