### Between Peter And Paul

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?

1. It didn't say that Paul was standing in the row. Only Peter was in the line.

1. if Paul has 27 scouts to left and 13 to the rt, how could he not be in line.

2. It didn't say that Paul was standing in the row. Only Peter was in the line.

4. 7, It didn't say Paul or Peter were scouts, just that they went to the meeting. Assuming 40 scouts, If Paul has 27 to his left and Peter is 21th position, Paul would at least be #13 position. , so the answer must be 7.( assuming neither Peter or Paul are scouts) We are not told.

1. P.S. There could be countless non-scouts in the row along with all the (40) scouts, which may be scattered in a 200 person line. We assume again!

2. if they are scouts, ans=6

5. Sorry didn't read the question properly.... It should be 6 or 7....There's a total of 41 people so it is impossible for Peter to be standing in the centre.... Hope i'm right....

1. 21st position z d middle of 41 scouts

6. Since the total number of scout including Paul and peter is 42 and unfortunately the total number happen to be even number where Peter claim to be standing in the center. Therefore, answer could be either 6 or 7 depending on the side of the center Peter stood.

8. Peter can be in the middle because their are twenty on either side of him and he is number 21. So with a total of 41 [taken from Paul (1) the 27 on one side (1+27) and 13 on other side (1+27+13=41)] and counting from Paul's position (14) then between him and Peter's position (21) there are 6 scouts...

9. 41 scouts are there

10. 6 is d correct answer

11. Paul was not in the row.Only Peter was.

12. 6 scout in between
