How Many Phones Can Be Charged At The Same Time?

Look at the picture below and answer the following question:

How many phones can be charged at once?

It seems easy, right?

There are 3 sockets: one of them is for 2 devices and another 2 are for 4 devices.

You should not be a mathematical genius to do this calculation.

The answer is 10! But is it correct?

How Many Phones Can Be Charged At The Same Time?

So here the right answer goes:

One of the devices with 4 sockets is actually useless. It doesn’t have a cord, that is, it is idle.

The other socket for 4 devices has one faulty outlet, which means we can use only 3 of them instead of 4.

And finally, we have 1 device with 2 sockets, which we can connect to the socket with 3 working outlets.

Thus, the right answer to the riddle is: 4 phones can be charged at once!
