On a train,** Smith**, **Robinson**, and **Jones** are the** fireman**, the** brakeman**,
and the** engineer **(not necessarily respectively). Also aboard the train
are three passengers with the same names, Mr. Smith, Mr. Robinson, and
Mr. Jones.

(1) Mr. Robinson is a passenger. He lives in Detroit.

(2) The brakeman lives exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit.

(3) Mr. Jones is a passenger. He earns exactly $20,000 per year.

(4) The brakeman’s nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the brakeman.

(5) Smith is not a passenger. He beats the fireman in billiards.

(6) The passenger whose name is the same as the brakeman’s lives in Chicago.

Who is the engineer?

Let's list all the clues once again here.

(1) Mr. Robinson is a passenger. He lives in Detroit.

(2) The brakeman lives exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit.

(3) Mr. Jones is a passenger. He earns exactly $20,000 per year.

(4) The brakeman’s nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the brakeman.

(5) Smith is not a passenger. He beats the fireman in billiards.

(6) The passenger whose name is the same as the brakeman’s lives in Chicago.

Since as per (2), the brakeman lives exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit, locations Chicago or Detroit can't be nearest to him. Hence, the passenger that (4) is suggesting must be

Now as per (1), Mr. Robinson lives in Detroit, means he is not the nearest to brakeman. Mr.Jones earning is $20,000/year as per (3), which is not evenly divisible by 3. Hence, the passenger (4) is

A - B = B
B * C = A
D : B = E
C * C = E
C + E = A

Let's first rewrite all equations and number them

1. A - B = B

2. B * C = A 3. D : B = E 4. C * C = E 5. C + E = A

For which numbers stand A, B, C, D and E?

From 1, A = 2B. Putting this in 2 gives,

C = 2.

Putting C = 2 in 4 gives, E = 4.

So from 5, A = C + E = 2 + 4 = 6.

Equation 2 gives, B = A/C = 6/2 = 3.

And equation 3 gives D = B * E = 3 * 4 = 12.

As per

C + 1 = 2 (H - 1)

C + 1 = 2H -2

Now in

C - 1 = H + 1

Putting (1) in above,

2H - 3 = H + 2

Again putting this value in (1) gives,

C = 2*5 - 3 = 10 - 3 = 7

1. Burn both the ends of 1st string and 1 end of other string.

2. After 30 minutes, 1st string will be burnt out and half of the other string will be burnt out.So far we have counted 30 minutes.

3. Now burn the other end of 2nd end. It will take 15 minute to burnt out totally. This way, we have counted 30 + 15 = 45 minutes using 2 strings.
