  • One of the top chefs from Pasta Palace has been kidnapped by operatives from Burger Bazaar, hoping to learn the location of their secret sauce recipe.

    譯者: Clement Fu 審譯者: Helen Chang

  • Little do they know that a third partySausage Saloonhas sent you to take advantage of the situation.

    意粉宮一個名廚

  • As their top spy, your skills range from infiltration and subterfuge, to safe cracking and reading faces for signs of deception.

    被漢堡殿的特工擄走了

  • You've tracked the captors to where they're holding the chef prisoner.

    想套出秘醬配方收藏的地點

  • From your hiding spot, you can see him on the other side of the glass, while in front of you an interrogator wearing headphones speaks into a microphone.

    殊不知黃雀在後

  • "We already know the recipe is on the 13th floor of the bank vault, in a safe deposit box numbered between 13 and 1300.”

    三分鼎足的熱狗城

  • "Now tell us, is the number less than 500?”

    特派你潛入,希望漁人得利

  • You can't hear the chef's answer, but you can see that he's lying.

    臥底佯裝、詭計多端、智破保險庫

  • The interrogator, however, falls for it.

    眉目悉謊言就是你這大密探的武器

  • He follows up by asking, "Is it a perfect square?”

    你追蹤綁匪,找到名廚俘虜的位置

  • Again, you can't hear the answer but can tell the chef is lying, while the interrogator takes him at his word.

    暗中視察,看到囚在玻璃後的名廚

  • He then asks, "is it a perfect cube?”

    眼前則有審問者,頭戴耳機

  • This time the chef answers truthfully.

    對著麥克風說話

  • The interrogator thinks for a minute and says, "Good. now if you just tell me whether or not the number's second digit is a one, we'll be done here.”

    「我們查出秘方藏在保險庫 13 樓

  • But as the chef starts to answer, the interrogator stands up, blocking your view.

    編號 13 至 1300 其中一個保險箱

  • Within moments, he rushes out of the room, announcing that he's got the answer, and is sending agents to retrieve the recipe.

    請回答:編號是否小於 500?」

  • You know that the Burger Bazaar people have the wrong box number, but can you figure out the right one and retrieve the recipe yourself?

    聽不到名廚答話但看得出他在撒謊

  • Pause the video to figure it out for yourself.

    審問者卻不虞有詐

  • Answer in 3

    續問:「編號是否完全平方數?」

  • Answer in 2

    你同樣聽不到答案但看出他在撒謊

  • Answer in 1

    但審問者深信不疑

  • The key here is to work backwards.

    再問:「編號是否完全立方數?」

  • We don't know what the chef answers to the final question or whether he answers truthfully.

    今次名廚如實作答

  • But we do know that by the time the interrogator asks it, he's narrowed the options down to two numbers - one where the second digit is 1, and one where it isn't.

    審問者想了一想,然後說

  • Our goal, then, is to find answers to the previous questions that lead to just two possibilities.

    「最後一條:編號第二位數是否 1

  • Of the three constraints offered, the one that narrows our options the most is if the number is a perfect cube.

    答完這條就好了」

  • That leaves us with only eight answers between 13 and 1300.

    就在名廚正要作答時

  • So let's assume the answer to the third question was a truthful yes.

    審問者站了起來,遮擋了你的視線

  • Now, let's look at the second question.

    一瞬間他就衝出了房間

  • If the chef answered yes to the number being a perfect square, it would narrow the interrogator's options to just 64 and 729 - the only numbers in our range that are both a square and a cube.

    說他找到答案了,正派人取秘方

  • But neither of these has a 1 as the second digit.

    你知道漢堡殿找錯了編號

  • So the given answer to the second question must've been no.

    但你能否得出正確編號找到秘方?

  • And that also means we can eliminate these two squares from the interrogator's list, leaving only six numbers.

    要嘗試解謎,請按一下「暫停」

  • Now for the first question, which allows us to divide this list.

    揭曉倒數:3

  • If the chef answered yes to the number being less than 500, we'd have four options, which is too many.

    揭曉倒數:2

  • But a no leaves us with two numbers greater than 500, one of which does have a 1 as its second digit.

    揭曉倒數:1

  • We don't know which of these numbers the interrogator thinks is correct, but that doesn't matter - remember, his conclusion was based on lies.

    解題關鍵是用倒推法

  • You, on the other hand, are now in a position to reconstruct the truth.

    最後一條的答案,我們不知道

  • First, the chef said the number was greater than 500, but lied, meaning it's actually less than 500.

    亦不知道那一題名廚是否說實話

  • Second, the chef said it wasn't a perfect square, but lied again, meaning the number is indeed a square.

    但我們知道,審問者問那一題時

  • And finally, he truthfully confirmed that it was also a cube.

    心中把數字收窄到兩個數字

  • And as we've already seen, the only number under 500 that's both a square and a cube is 64.

    一個第二位數是 1,另一個不是 1

  • You find the secret recipe and are gone before anyone's the wiser.

    我們的目標就是找出之前的問題

  • Corporate espionage is not an easy game - but sometimes, that's just how the sausage is made.

    甚麼答案只得出兩個可能數

  • Don't take a break just yet - the world needs you.

    三項制限中

  • An evil syndicate is primed to use its powerful death ray.

    最能收窄範圍的是完全立方數這條

  • Use your espionage skills to infiltrate their secret lair and save us all.

    從 13 到 1300 可篩出僅 18 個數字
