HR Strange But True!
November 07, 2008

A company has launched a puzzle contest to help it find talented employees. Language Weaver, a provider of automated software translation, says it launched the campaign to find creative people to fuel the company's growth.

The first person to submit the correct answer to each of the eight Language Weaver Challenge puzzles will receive $1,000 and will be considered for a position as researcher or engineer at the company. The company says that it may consider other puzzle solvers for jobs as well.

"For the Language Weaver Challenge, we have created a series of puzzles to help us find smart people who have fresh ideas to join our team," said Kevin Knight, co-founder and chief scientist at Language Weaver.

The company plans to release a new puzzle every few weeks. The company released the first puzzle November 3. Unfortunately, the winner has already been named, but you can still see if you can solve it.

Here it is:

Bristol rolls three dice. If the sum is a prime number, then Bristol pays the piper two dollars. If the sum is not prime, then the piper pays Bristol one dollar. Who is going to win more money if they play over and over, Bristol or the piper?
