Well guys, a friend of mine has given me one hell of a riddle.

There are three houses (1, 2 and 3) and three utilities (water, electricity and sewage). All three of the houses must be hooked to each of the utilities, but no utility lines can cross each other; not even lines of the same type. Lines cannot pass under houses.



I have been working it for hours and I can't come up with an answer.

^ That picture doesn't have water at teh right house.

And it's supposed to be a paper riddle...it's impossible, unless you use the holes at the side.

By the way, it doesn't matter where you put the utilities and houses.

If you can reposition the houses, since the diagram that you gave isn't technically specified in the riddle, you can do it. Switch water with house 3.

Easy



None of the lines cross, They are all connected to each of the utilities. its a play on words.

what you do is you open up the front door and go through the house out the back door which solves the problem.
