Peter and Paul went to a scout camp. during a meeting all the scouts stood in a single row, Peter was exactly in the middle. there were 27 scouts to Paul's left and 13 to Paul's right.

How many scouts stood between Peter and Paul?

Answer:

Here we said that Peter is inthe middle.
Already given that Paul's left side covers 27 scouts and right side covers 13 scouts including Peter. So total scouts = 27(Left side of Paul)+ 13(Right side of Paul)+ 1(Paul)=41
Center=21st (Peter in 21st place)
Arranging this in a row there are 6 pople in between peter and Paul.
