Logic Problem Solution:
The Van Pool
By clue 2, neither Jim nor Art gets out of the van pool at
16th St., so either Carol or Linda does. If Carol gets
out at 16th St., by clues 2 and 3, Jim would get out at
Declaration Pl. Then Linda's commute would end at either
Benford Blvd. or Melrose Ave.--no (4). So, Linda gets
out of the van at 16th St. Since Carol doesn't get out
first (3), by clue 2, Jim does, with Linda then getting
out second. The only way for clue 3 to work is for Carol
to get out fourth, with Art then getting out third at
Declaration Pl. By clue 1, Jim's commute ends at Benford
Blvd. and Carol's at Melrose Ave. The four van pool riders
get out in order
- 1st, Jim at Benford Blvd.
- 2nd, Linda at 16th St.
- 3rd, Art at Declaration Pl.
- 4th, Carol at Melrose Ave.
