Recycling Logic Puzzle

Connor, Ethan, Kaylee, and Alyssa each recycled a different number of cans (30, 26, 23, and 16) as well as a different number of junk mail letters (123, 127, 116, and 121).

Figure out how many cans and junk mail letters each person recycled.
  1. Kaylee recycled the most number of cans.
  2. Ethan recyled a total of one hundred forty-nine cans and junk mail letters.
  3. Alyssa recycled the least number of junk mail letters.
  4. Connor and Ethan recyled a total of two hundred ninety-two cans and junk mail letters.
  5. Kaylee recycled less than one hundred twenty-three junk mail letters.
  6. If the number of cans Ethan recycled was doubled he would have recycled fifty-two cans.
  7. Alyssa recycled ninety-three more junk mail letters than the number of cans she recycled.


  1. C: 16, 127
    E: 26, 123
    K: 30, 121
    A: 23, 116

  2. I got the same answer, but I figured it out at clue #4. I used 5-7 to simply confirm my answers.
