Of the four suits that make up a deck of cards, only the diamonds are symmetrical, in that a diamond - unlike a club, a heart or a spade looks the same whether it is rightside-up or updside-down.
However, one of the 13 diamond cards is different when you turn it upside-down. Without checking any deck of cards you may have lying around, can you name that one non-symmetrical diamond?
I'm posting one puzzle, riddle, math, or statistical problem a day. Try to answer each one and post your answers in the comments section. I'll post the answer the next day. Even if you have the same answer as someone else, feel free to put up your answer, too!

Hint: There are never more than three diamonds in a row across the card, although there can be more than that up and down.ReplyDelete
Excuse me, I meant there are never three diamonds in a row.ReplyDelete
So take out 'never more than three diamonds' and replace it with 'never three diamonds in a row' in the hint above.
the 7 of diamonds usually has the 7th diamond on one end of the card or the otherReplyDelete
That's right. It's the seven of diamonds.ReplyDelete
