Puzzles like this one challenge your brain to figure out something new, with no clear ties to problems you already know how to solve! The more of these you tackle, the more equipped you become at adapting to new challenges that come your way. Think back to how impossible this problem seemed at first, and reflect on the “aha” feeling you may have experienced once you realized returning to the starting candle would help. The TED-Ed riddle series is a great place to find more puzzles, each different from the last!
