    Re: Simple Solving Puzzle....

    He started with 7 news papers and supplied 8 newspapers to all the three shops.

    Let me explain:

    The person started with 7 news papers. When he entered into shop 1 no of news papers is doubled 14. He supplied 8 newspapers and left with 6.

    He entered the 2nd shop with 6 newspapers and again the no is doubled to 14. He supplied 8 newspapers there and left with 4.

    finally in the third shop the amount doubled to 8 and he supplied all the 8 news papers with him.

    Actually this problem has many answers with the form 7n and 8n where 7n is the number of newspapers he start with and 8n is the number of papers he distribute in each of the three shops. so the answers to this problem are (7,8),(14,16),(21,24) and so on
