In the dictionary.

P.S.: I'd have said 4 as well, same reasoning as Bloodsucker, thinking that "carrying in hand" wouldn't count as "going to", thinking that's a trick. With this interpretation "flying" would count as "going to" as well (you fly to the US, you still say "I'm going to" - so if that was important it would probably have to be asked as "how many are WALKING to".

So I've been wrong on the first one as well.

Notice, the true answer for the second is: in real life.
His answer is for the first one.

Right?

Here’s today’s riddle dear contestants, have some self-respect and don’t google-cheat:

1 rabbit saw 9 elephants while going to the river. Every elephant saw 3 monkeys going to the river. Each monkey had 1 tortoise in each hand.
How many animals are going to the river?
Sounds like a math problem from high school.

ok guys, I'm slowly backing off from this discussion. It's way over my head cause I don't understand the intricacies of the english language, and apparently the answers to both riddles are lying in the understanding of the language.

So yeah, count me out of the discussion. If a logic / math based riddle will be posted again I shall try my luck again, otherwise this type of riddles are hard for me

You dare to say this is language riddle? After I gave the answer?

How many animals are going to the river?
1 rabbit saw 9 elephants while going to the river.1 animal is going towards the river. The rabbit.

Every elephant saw 3 monkeys going to the river. The inherent twist in this sentence is that it doesn't say that each elephant saw 3 monkeys, rather it says all 9 elephants saw 3 monkeys.

The elephants are not going to the river, the monkeys are. So that is now 4 animals. The rabbit + 3 monkeys.

Each monkey had 1 tortoise in each hand. Again another trick. Due to the wording it means that 1 monkey is holding 2 tortoises–one in each hand. So that is 6 tortoises.

Now to total everything up. 1 rabbit, 3 monkeys, 6 tortoises. Add those all up you get 10. Final answer is 10.

Hope that helped Monere.

I had the other riddle (the one with today before yesterday) in mind when I said it

oddball... now I know the answer because I read all of the comments and put all of the pieces together, but the first time I read the riddle I assumed that the elephants went to the river, too. Well, it's not that I assumed but more likely that this is how I understood the riddle (might be due to my occasional poor understanding of the english language, which I admit to be guilty of). Thanks for your trouble, though. I shall once return the favor

Thank you for the riddle. You know, I am not good at guessing them. If I need to make a conclusion, I usually see charts graphs and diagrams and they really help to understand what is happening. Today was a very complicated day and of course, I can't find out anything worthy. So, Good luck to all of you!
