I got a riddle:
Wait your turn God dang it

I'm sure you guys will find this one easy.  I'll come up with a better one next time.  

3,4,6,1
12,3,2,1
2,2,1,Y
1,3,X,4

What is x and y?  

And for the hint that probably makes it too easy.  
Spoiler for hint:
<br>One of the the four: +,-,*,/<br>

Anybody got any ideas.

the-pi-guy

 3    4    6    1  
 12    3    2    1  
 2  2  1  Y
 1  3  X  4



Does this help?

I don't like riddles.
-He was shot, drowned, and hung after dinner.
-He was shot in a nerf gun game, drowned by the love of his family and his wife attests to him being hung.  He made it to dinner that night because his wife loves him.  
-He was murdered by a maniac, who wore his face to dinner.  
-He was tragically killed, and his distraught wife carried him like a puppet to the dinner.  Unable to cope with his murder.  
-He was shot by a camera, the film with him on it was drowned to develop it, and his face was hung on the wall.
-He was shot in a nerf gun game, drowned by the love of his family and he was hung up on what the answer to the trivia game was!  
-He was shot by a water gun, he was drowned by the stress of his job, and he was hung on the monkey bars.  He made it to the dinner because his wife loved him enough to get him down.  
Camera one is correct  :P

I got another riddle:

You have just been allowed to leave prison.
They give you 2 doors.
One door is freedom, the other door is death.
There is a guard next to each of these doors. One is a liar the other is truthful.
How would you know which door to go through?

I got a riddle:
A man was shot,drowned, and hung in 1 day. How did he go to dinner that night?
I'm assuming he went dead.

@1/2 tau

Your clue has me going in the wrong direction: trying to find some way the 4 numbers in a row are related with those 4 symbols. Ie 7+5=12, 7-5=3, 7×5=35(but it's 2), and 7/5 rounds to 1.

Sorry the real hint is:
Spoiler for Hidden:
multiplying


I just didn't want the hint to give it away too easily.

Oh haha I thought your hint applied to one of the 4 lines, not that it was 1 of the 4 functions.

Legend

X=6
Y=18

All rows and columns multiply to 72.

Yeah, sorry for the confusion.  

X=6
Y=18

Correct!  

Pretty easy, but there's so many different ways to tackle these kinds of problems.

OK here's my puzzle


Hint:
Spoiler for Hidden:
Closer to Swordfish&#39;s original puzzle then 1/2 tau&#39;s puzzle.




Also Swordfish you deleted your puzzle!  ::)

After spending 10 minutes on my slow dog laptop transforming the qr code to normal using gimp so I can scan, I get this

Thanks Legend  :(

So I'm guessing it's only the numbers that we need to solve puzzle.

Well at the very least you're making progress!  ;D

So I'm guessing that the numbers represent letters since Legend referred to my puzzle. If that's the case, the numbers can represent 6 combination of letters if the 0 could represent a space or 3 if it doesn't.
EIDA-BAC
EIDA-BM
EIDA-UC
EIDJBAC
EIDJUC
EIDJBM
So if I'm barking up the right tree, we are looking at an anagram.

AIDE CAB
JUICED

None of these look right.


If we take the 0 to be a . then it's the first few digits of 1/2 tau!

What a coincidence.  :o
