Logic Problem Solution:
The Future According to Madame Rhue

The five friends are listed in clue 5: Lisa, Miss Trowbridge, the one who asked if her Jefferson High team would win the state championship in basketball, the girl who asked if she could be Prom Queen in May, and one of the two who received "No" answers from Madame Rhue. By clue 1, both the senior who asked if she would get a 5 on the AP Calculus exam and the one who asked if she was going to attend Stanford University got "Yes" responses from the crystal ball. In clue 5, then, the two in clue 1 must be Lisa and Miss Trowbridge in some order. The one who got a "No" answer in clue 5 thus asked if she would rise to the rank of Admiral. By clue 9, Kari got a positive response from Madame Rhue but isn't Miss Trowbridge; she got the third "Yes" to the ones received by Lisa and Miss Trowbridge and therefore didn't ask about the AP exam or attending Stanford. Kari also didn't ask the question about winning the basketball championship (2), so she asked Madame Rhue if she could be Prom Queen. The girl who asked about being on the state championship team got the second "No." By clue 7, she must be Miss Sanders-Scott. By clue 8, Miss Usherwood asked the crystal ball whether she would become an Admiral. Jana is Miss Trowbridge (3). Jana asked whether she would be attending Standford (10), so Lisa inquired re her AP Calculus score. Lisa is Walsh and Kari Valley (6). Marcy is basketball-player Sanders-Scott and Heidi is going to the Naval Academy in Annapolis (4). The five asked questions of and received answers from Madame Rhue and her crystal ball as follows:

  • Jana Trowbridge, "Will I be attending Stanford University next fall?", YES
  • Kari Valley, "Do I have a really good chance of being Prom Queen?", YES
  • Lisa Walsh, "Will I get a 5 on the AP Calculus exam?", YES
  • Heidi Usherwood, "Will I be an Admiral some day?", NO
  • Marcy Sanders-Scott, "Will the Jefferson High girls basketball team win the state championship?", NO Copyright © 2000-2007 by Calvin J. Hamilton & Randall L. Whipkey. All rights reserved. Privacy Statement.
