HOW MANY YOYO'S ARE IN THIS PUZZLE

This answer was rated:

YOYOOY
OYOYOO
YOYYOY
OYOOYO
OYYOYY
Hi Customer,

If you're looking for just YO, then I see 9. This only counts the ones on each line, not using the Y and O from 2 different lines and not going backwards.

If you're looking for YOYO together, then I see 2.

I hope this helps!
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
NO I am looking for yoyo up down back forward and diagional ...any way you can connect the yoyo
Going up, down, diagnal, forwards and backwards, I count 13

Number of YOYO's is 11. Here is table representing all the possibilities.

Reply to John D's Post: THAT IS NOT THE CORRECT ANSWER...IT IS WHAT EVER CONNECTS... I JUST TRIED 13 AND WAS WRONG
In that case, my answer would be 8

Hi,

My answer was 11 not 13 as shown in the table. You may be looking at the other expert's answer.

STILL WAS NOT 11 OR 13 THEY WERE BOTH TRIED

OK. Let's first make sure that the original list is correct. There was another customer recently who had the same question. Their list was exactly like yours except for the last line which was OYYOYO instead of OYYOYY . Can you check your list again and confirm.

Thanks

There are 11. I worked it out myself and came up with the same number as John.

Going left to right 2

Going right to left 1

Going top to bottom 3

Going bottom to top 3

Diagnal 2

Reply to Tracy's Post: THAT QUESTION HAS BEEN ANSWERED 11 MANY TIMES AND TOLD NO

So, do you want the answer now based on the last line being OYYOYO instead of OYYOYY?

 

If you are using the OYYOYO instead, the answer would be 12

Going left to right 3

Going right to left 1

Going top to bottom 4

Going bottom to top 2

Diagnal 2
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
YES .. AND I AM SURE THE SAME PEOPLE ARE ASKING FOR THE SAME REASON

OK. give me few minutes, I am preparing a new table for you.

 

Customer: replied 9 years ago.
BUT THEY SAID THEY CAN CONNECT WITH IN THE LINES GOING INTO THE NEXT EX;; YOYOYO THERE WOULD BE TWO FORWARD AND ONE BACK .. I AM SURE IT IS THE SAME GAME SHOW THEY ARE ASKING ABOUT .. BECAUSE THE ANSWER 11 HAS BEEN GIVING MANY TIMES...THE SHOW IS OVER FOR TODAY AND NO ONE WON .. IT IS ON, AGAIN ON WEEKENDS AT 1AM TO 3 AM

There are only 11 full YOYO's in the new list. You can check for yourself in the table from the file file below (you can use the Find command looking for YOYO's).

file here

However, the question that was asked by the other customer was slightly different. They wanted to know how many YO's there are, and then combine them to find out how many YOYO's you get. In that case the answer is 52 YO's making 26 full YOYO's.

Hope this helps.

 

Can you use 2 lines to connect? Example (in red):


YOYOOY
OYOYOO
YOYYOY
OYO
OYO
OYYOYO
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
YES

Great. Please don't forget to click the Accept button. Thanks.

 

Okay if it can go from one line to the next, there are 18

Going left to right 5

Going right to left 4

Going top to bottom 4

Going bottom to top 3

Diagnal 2

What about this combo, does this count (see red), or does it have to go in a line?

YOYOOY
OYOYOO
YOYYOY
OYOOYO
OYYOYO
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Reply to Tracy's Post: in anyway they connect..

Still confused? You won't be after this!
