# Only 37% of People Got This Puzzle Right On the First Try...Can You?

It better be, because this is a logic puzzle because, well, it requires logic. Itâ€™s simply using the rules of deduction to solve this puzzle. And apparently only 37% of people got it right on the first try â€” no fair going back and trying it again after you see the solution â€” so let's see how your brain stacks up.

### Here are three boxes with three corresponding statements.

Box 1 says there is a car in this box. Box 2 says there is not a car in this box. And Box 3 says there is NOT a car in Box 1.

### Which box has the car?

Before you scroll down, give it a minute or two of deep thought... Okay, let's break it down.

### Suppose Box 1 is true, then the car WOULD be in Box 1. That would mean Box 2 and 3 would have to be false.

If Box 1 does in factÂ have a car, that means Box 2 would have to be false and that Box 2 DOES have a car, which means both boxes would have a car and thatâ€™s not possible. That means we ruled out Box 1. Let's move on to Box 3.

### So that means that it has to be in Box 2 then, right?

Since Box 3 is the one true statement, that means Box 1 actually doesnâ€™t have a car and the car is in Box 2 because itâ€™s false and Box 3 stays as the only true one. How did you do?
