Puzzle n°26 (**) - Nose-to-nose Meetings Homepage  


During their New Year's Eve Party,
Brownie and Alaska had invited their friends,
and they had a very nice party
with 12 couples in total,
that is 24 somalis !

When they meet, cats often touch each other's nose
to recognize the other's smell.
They do it once, not twice with the same cat...
And mates among a couple don't need to do this,
they know each other too well !


It happens that Brownie noticed that everybody else had touched a different number of noses...

How many noses did Brownie himself touch ?
How many noses did his "wife" Alaska touch herself ?

... I'm giving up ...
