Sadie you so smart

Wondering what the answers are to August’s Rompecabeza that Sadie, our COO’s 4 year old daughter, thunk up? Did you notice the hint at the bottom of the page? If you didn’t see it and you still want to give the puzzle a shot, stop reading now, cuz SPOILERS AHEAD.

August Rompecabeza

The key to the puzzle is to think of each number as a day of the week. 1 = the 1st day of the week, or Monday. 2 = 2 days in, or Tuesday, 3 = 3 days in, or Wednesday, and so on and so forth. If a number is greater than 7, it falls into the following week; 8 then would be a Monday, or 7 days + 1 day. Now that you have the key, it’s easy to see how Sadie reached the answers she did:

1 day + 4 days = the 5th day of the week (Friday)
7 days + 7 days = the 7th day of the 2nd week (Sunday)
5 days + 6 more days = the 4th day of the 2nd week (Thursday)

So the answers to the unfilled answers are thus:

2 + 3 = 5
1 + 11 = 5
7 + 3 = 3

Thanks for playing! Stay tuned for September’s Rompecabeza — hint: The answer is One Wipe Charlie related.
