Geometry students have been working on geometric reasoning at the start of this semester and was given the following problem.  The problem requires the use of logic and geometric reasoning to solve it.  It takes a little bit of time, but if you’re up for the challenge, go ahead and try it.  It’s a fun problem that students enjoy working on.  Answer is at the bottom of the post.

WHO OWNS THE ZEBRA?
(WHO DRINKS THE WATER)?

There are five houses, each of a different color, and inhabited by people of different nationalities.  Each person has a different pet, favorite drink, and favorite music style.  By whatever process you can devise, find out who drinks the water and who owns the zebra.
