hi. for number 16, how did it arrive to 18? thanks

• Jona

18 is arrived as follows:
Facts:
– there are 30 candies to be placed in 6 jars
– one jar is empty
– each jar has a different number of candies
– no jar has exactly three candies

With the above facts, the greatest number of candies that any one jar can have is 18. This is computed as follows: Jar 1 = 0 candies; Jar 2 = 1 candy; Jar 3 = 2 candies; Jar 4 = 4 candies; Jar 5 = 5 candies; Jar 6 = 18 candies (30 less (0 + 1 + 2 + 4 + 5))
[Jars 2 to 5 contain the minimum amount of candies possible to be able to compute the maximum amount that can be contained in any one jar]

4+5+6+7+8=30
