Logic Problem Solution:
Pete Vs. the Puzzles
From the introduction, Pete spent a total of two hours working on the
puzzles. By clue 2, Pete spent 60 mins. total at the 2nd4th web
sites and therefore 60 mins. between the 1st and 5th web sites; also
by clue 2, no two puzzles took the same amount of time to solve. By
clue 6, the longest amount of time Pete spent on any single puzzle was
45 mins. In clue 3, three of the web sites are listed in order: the
one at which Pete spent 10 mins., the one where he did the Word Math,
and www.topflitepuzzles.comso the 10 mins. site was the 1st, 2nd,
or 3rd Pete visited. If it had been 1st, by clue 2, the last site
visited would have been for 50 mins.more than the 45 mins. maximum
(6). If Pete were at the 3rd web site for the 10 mins., the Word
Math site and www.topflitepuzzles.com would then be the 4th and 5th
visited (3). If the Word Math were at www.puzzazzles.com, by clue 5,
it would have taken 25 mins. to complete. However, by clue 2, since
the 2nd4th sites took an hour total, the 2nd site would also have
required 25 mins. for Pete to solve the puzzle trieda conflict with
the clue 2 fact that no two sites took the same time. By clue 5, the
www.puzzazzles.com puzzle couldn't have taken the 10 mins. So, the
Pete would have visited www.puzzazzles.com 2nd. Pete then couldn't
have been at the 1st site for the maximum 45 mins. or he would have
been at www.puzzazzles.com for 60 (5). Pete couldn't have been at
www.puzzazzles.com for the 45 mins.if he had, he would have been
at the 1st site 30 mins., sites 24 60 mins. (2), and the 5th site
then also 30 mins., contradicting clue 2. Pete couldn't have been
at the Word Math site for 45 mins. or he would have been at
www.puzzazzles.com for 5 mins. (2)impossible (5). So, Pete would
have been at the 5th web site 45 mins. and at the 1st 15 mins. (the
1st and 5th sites totalled 60 mins. by clue 2). He would have then
spent 30 mins. on the Crossword (1) and at www.puzzazzles.com (5),
which would have to be the same siteno (7). Therefore, there is
no way for Pete to have spent the 10 mins. at the 3rd web site. He
was there 2nd, solved the Word math 3rd, and visited web site
www.topflitepuzzles.com 4th. www.puzzazzles.com can't be the 1st or
2nd web site visited (5). If it were 3rd, then it would have taken
Pete 25 mins. to do the Word Math there (5). But, by clue 2, it
also would have taken Pete 25 mins. at the 4th siteby clue 2, a
conflict. So, Pete did the www.puzzazzles.com puzzle 5th. That
puzzle wasn't the Crossword (7). The Crossword also wasn't the 1st
puzzle done (1). If the Crossword had been the 2nd and had taken 10
mins., then the 1st puzzle would have taken 5 mins. (1) and the 5th
one 55 mins., contradicting clue 6. So, the Crossword was solved at
the 4th web site, www.topflitepuzzles.com. The site at which Pete
spent the 45 mins. isn't the 1st (1). It can't be the Word Math site,
or the Crossword would have taken 5 mins. (2), impossible (1, 6). It
also isn't the Crossword site, or the www.puzzazzles.com solution
would have taken longer (5). The solution of the www.puzzazzles.com
work took 45 mins. Then the Crossword took 30 mins. (5), the Word
Math 20 (2), and the 1st one 15 (1). By clue 4, the 1st site Pete
visited was www.propuzzlers.com, and the Cryptogram was at the 2nd.
The Cryptogram was at www.mrspuzzlemaker.com and the Word Math at
www.puzzlemaniac.com (4). Pete solved the Word Search 1st and the
Acrostic took the 45 mins. (6). Pete thus took the following times
to solve the five puzzles in order
 www.propuzzlers.com, Word Search, 15 mins.
 www.mrspuzzlemaker.com, Cryptogram, 10 mins.
 www.puzzlemaniac.com, Word Math, 20 mins.
 www.topflitepuzzles.com, Crossword, 30 mins.
 www.puzzazzles.com, Acrostic, 45 mins.
