Meanwhile I know Mensa since 1985. At that time I have got the german version of the riddle book "A Mensa Puzzle Book or Problems, Posers, Puzzles and Pastimes for the Superintelligent" by Victor Serebriakoff. Otherwise I was not very interested in Mensa at first. Later, in the year 1987, I also got the german version of the second riddle book "A Second Mensa Quzzle Book" by Victor Serebriakoff, but at this point of time, as well, Mensa itself stayed rather less fascinating for me. After all, during a school trip to Frankfurt in 1989 I also have bought the book "The Mensa Genius Quiz Book", yet. During my time with the german army and the beginning of the years of study Mensa almost completely fell into oblivion of me.
This nice caricature aready caused a long row of discussions about elegant as possible solutions. It is not even implicitly trivial to find easy solutions for this small problem, at all.
Furthermore you obviously can also find solutions in form of a polynom [
Likewise interesting it additionally is, that there exist four special values for X, which deliver whole-numbered continuations in each five alternatives I examined here:
10, (+3) 13, (+6) 19, (+12) 31.
Who knows further possibilities of solutions? Please send it to me.
