Logic Problem Solution:
Super Bowl Wings
By clue 2, Alexis and her date brought 3, 2, 1 ... Blastoff!
wings; while by clue 6, Mitch and his date brought the
Sausalito Sweet & Sour variety. Ben didn't come with
Alexis (7), so he is one of a third couple. By clue 1,
Ben and his date didn't bring the Jamaican Jerk wings, so
the couple who brought the Jerk wings are a fourth couple.
Shana didn't come to the Super Bowl party with Ben and
didn't bring the Jamaican Jerk wings (1, 4), so she is either
part of the fifth couple or came with Mitch. If Shana and
her date were the fifth couple, Ben and his date would have
brought the XXXHot wings and Shana and her date the Buffalo
Originals (4). Chad would have come with Alexis (5), and
Tony and his date would have brought the Jamaican Jerk wings
(4). Roxanne would have come to the party with Mitch (1),
but so would have Erin (9). So, Shana isn't part of the
fifth couple; she accompanied Mitch to the Super Bowl party.
By clue 1, Roxanne and her date are the fifth couple. Erin
and her date didn't bring the Buffalo Original wings (3) or
the XXXHot ones (9), so they brought the Jamaican Jerk
chicken. By elimination, Joan came to the party with Ben.
Tony didn't arrive with Roxanne (8) or Erin (9); he and
Alexis came to the party together. Chad and Roxanne were a
couple (5), and Erin's date was Wes. Chad and Roxanne
supplied the XXXHot and Ben and Joan the Buffalo Original
wings (5). The five couples brought wings to the Super Bowl
party as follows:
- Alexis & Tony, 3, 2, 1 ... Blastoff!
- Erin & Wes, Jamaican Jerk
- Joan & Ben, Buffalo Original
- Roxanne & Chad, XXXHot
- Shana & Mitch, Sausalito Sweet & Sour
