Puzzle
- US Version
The box shown below is fitted with a lock consisting of two dials. You can't turn the blue dial, but when you turn the red dial, the blue dial moves an equal amount. To see the relationship between the two dials, you turn the red one from its original position, as shown below. In order to open the lock, you must turn the blue dial to 3, 6, 4, and finally 1, in that order. Since you can't turn the blue dial directly, what numbers must you turn the red dial to in order to produce the desired numbers on the blue dial?

That was tough!
- US Version
The red dial has to be turned to 2, 7, 1, and finally 4 to produce the numbers you need on the blue dial.
It turns out these two dials actually rotate in opposite directions. One great way to solve this problem is to create a chart with each dial's corresponding numbers, like the one above.
