neither is a function really. they are different ways of configuring digits to represent values.

octal uses 8 as its base, meaning it has 8 single digit values, 0-7. decimal uses 10 as its base, meaning it has 10 single digit values, 0-9.

with octal, the 8th positive integer (9th non negative integer) is also the first double digit value, 10. the same 0-7 principle applies, and after 17, you go to 20 and so on.

decimal is what we use. when you get to the actual value of 10, the digits you use are 10.

Didn't get the cat one or engineer one.

And the bar one was missing the punchline.

Can someone explain the two logic ones? Those are the only two I really didn't understand.

For the first one (#1) the question asked about the baby was "is it a boy or a girl?". The response "Yes" is a literal response to the question ("Yes, the baby is either a boy or a girl") and would be expected of a true logician.

1)
He is asked if its a boy or a girl.

Logically/literally speaking, the answer is yes as it's definitely one of those two.

12) A better example of a logic one:

There's no way at first of knowing if all three wants drinks.

If either of the first two didn't want drinks, the answer to the question would have been No as they would know for certainty that not all three wanted drinks.

But if they wanted drinks but didn't know if one of the others wanted them, they answer "I don't know"

But if two answer "I don't know", that's enough data for the third to say with complete confidence that yes, all three want drinks.

In the do you want water one, they first two say they don't know because they want water. If they didn't want water the answer to the question "do you ALL want water?" would be no because not all of them wanted it. Because the third one knew both of the others wanted water by their answer he was able to say "yes" they all did.

That's the way positional number systems work.
