Logic Problem Solution:
Friends Helping Friends
By clue 1, three of the friends helping friends are Alex, the boy who
found the job mowing the lawn, and the one who had Mr. Halley's task.
The boy who found the window washing job isn't Alex (3) and didn't get
the work from Mr. Halley (6), so he is the fourth to the three in clue
1. He isn't Chad (5), nor did Chad find the lawn-mowing job (7); Chad
got the job from Mr. Halley. The job for Mrs. Diaz wasn't washing
windows (5), and Alex isn't the boy who got the task helping her (8);
Mrs. Diaz had the lawn-mowing job. By clue 9, Ian found the mowing job
and Jason the window washing. Jason's work wasn't for Mr. Trent (4);
Alex's was, and Jason found Mrs. Wilson's chore. The fence-staining
job was for Mr. Halley, and Mr. Trent paid to have his car cleaned (2).
In sum, the Saturday jobs were
- Alex, cleaning car for Mr. Trent
- Chad, staining fence for Mr. Halley
- Ian, mowing lawn for Mrs. Diaz
- Jason, washing windows for Mrs. Wilson
