चोरी की गिन्नियों का बंटवारा... (Division of stolen gold coins...)

इसी ब्लॉग के जरिये बने मेरे मित्र प्रकाश गोविन्द के फेसबुक स्टेटस से ली गई है यह पहेली... हालांकि इससे मिलती-जुलती कुछ पहेलियां पहले से विवेकरस्तोगी.कॉम पर उपलब्ध हैं, परन्तु इतना तो आप सभी मानेंगे, कि पहेलियां हर बार, हर रूप में नई जैसा आनन्द देती हैं... सो, मज़ा लीजिए और हल कीजिए... 

विशेष नोट : अगर आप जवाब ढूंढ लेते हैं तो ठीक, वरना कमेंट लिख दीजिएगा, मैं जवाब आपको मेल के जरिये भेज दूंगा...

 
सात चोरों ने राजमहल में घुसकर चोरी की और सोने की गिन्नियों से भरी थैली लेकर भाग निकले...

सैनिकों से बचते-बचाते सबसे पहले दो चोर अपने अड्डे पर पहुंचे, और मन में बेईमानी आ गई... सोचा, हम दोनों ही बांट लेते हैं, सो, गिन्नियां निकालकर दो हिस्सों में बांटने की कोशिश की, लेकिन एक गिन्नी बच गई...

इतनी ही देर में तीसरा चोर भी भागते-भागते पहुंचा और तुरन्त भांप गया, क्या चल रहा है... सो बोला, मेरा हिस्सा भी बांटो, वरना पोल खोल दूंगा... अब गिन्नियों को तीन हिस्सों में बांटा गया, लेकिन इस बार भी एक गिन्नी बच गई...

इसी दौरान चौथा चोर भी पहुंचा और बाकी साथियों की तरह गिन्नियों को चार हिस्सों में बांटे जाने की फरमाइश कर डाली, लेकिन हाय रे भाग्य... इस बार भी एक गिन्नी बच गई...

इसी तरह पांचवें के आने पर जब पांच हिस्से किए गए, तब भी आश्चर्यजनक रूप से एक गिन्नी बची, और उन सबकी हैरानी का कोई छोर न रहा, जब छठे साथी के पहुंचने पर उन्होंने गिन्नियों के छह हिस्से किए और तब भी एक गिन्नी बच गई...

आखिरकार, सातवां चोर भी अड्डे पर पहुंच गया, और सात हिस्सों में बांटने पर गिन्नियां पूरी-पूरी बंट गईं...

अब आप लोग मुझे बताइए, थैली में कम से कम कितनी गिन्नियां थीं...?

Now, the same riddle in English...

I have copied this riddle from the Facebook status of my friend Prakash Govind...

Special Note: If you succeed in solving this one, well and good; but in case, you don't, just leave a comment, and I will mail the answer to you...

A group of seven thieves burgled the king's palace, and managed to steal a bag full of gold coins...

Two of the thieves ran faster, and reached their den before their accomplices, and thought of sharing the coins between themselves... But when they tried to divide the total coins into two parts, one coin remained...

In the meanwhile, the third thief reached there, and understood immediately what's happening... He asked to divide the loot into three parts, and when they tried doing that, one coin remained this time too...

Fourth thief also arrived, and demanded the same, but unfortunately, when they divided the coins in four parts, one coin remained this time too...

Very surprisingly, they tried dividing the coins into five parts, when the fifth of their partner reached to the den, and into six parts, when the sixth one came, but both the times, one coin remained...

At last, the seventh thief came, and divided gold coins into seven parts, and lo, coins were equally divided...

Now, can you guys tell me, at least how many gold coins were there in the bag...?

    1. Sabse pehle tumhe badhaai ho, Nitin... Tumhaara jawaab bilkul sahi hai...

      Ab tumhaara hi comment copy-paste kar raha hoon...

      "Maine aapki paheli ek 10 minut main nikali thi. teacher vali paheli, jisme yah poochte hain ki class main kitne student hain. vo maine apne math vale praveen sir se poocha, unhone vah 2 hi minut main nikal diya. vaise ye jawab sahi hai na. agar galat hai toh please ise hide kar dena. aapki ati kripa hogi.

      Vaise aap ye paheliya kaha se laate ho. chalo mujhe isse kya matlab. mujhe toh sirf answer batane hain. koi nahi sir. vaise mere hisab se mera answer sahi hona chaiye. main ye paheli apne school main jakar praveen sir se poochunga. ok sir."

      Is blog par adhiktar paheliyaan meri khud ki likhi huyee hain, Nitin, aur paheliyaan likhna aur hal karte rehna mera shauk raha hai... Aur mujhe khushi hai ki tumhaare jaise students aaj bhi hain, jinhe dimaagi kasrat mein mazaa aata hai... Lage raho, shubh-kaamnaayein... :-)
