help needed with logic problem

Author

I came across this logic puzzle on comcast.net and it is driving me crazy.  

It shows 4 parking places.  The 4th one has a car parked in it.   The parking places are numbered,  the number on the 4th parking place is blocked by the parked car.  That challenge is to figure out what that number is using the numbers on the first 3 parking places.

They are:

  • 06
  • 68
  • 88

I have tried to figure it out but can't.   Unfortunately because of my computer problems I can't display the page that I think has the answer:

Perhaps one of you can solve the problem or click on the link and then tell me the answer from there.  Thanks for any help you give.

The numbers on the parking spaces are upside down. So its actually 88, 89, and 90.*

 So the "number" on the "4th" spot is "L8"?

But is the dress white and gold or blue and black?

Neither. It's blue and brown

Arrivederci.

That's the sort of fun lateral thinking problem I enjoy. Thanks Warb. 

(didn't get it, but really enjoyed the answer)

Here's an excerpt from my as of yet unpublished story book of logic puzzles I wrote for my middle schoolers. 

*****

“Well what do we have here?” The Captain said wryly, “If it isn’t the Ninja Twins again. I recognize you both from the throne room.”

“Stop calling us that!” Said Candy the Ninja.

“It’s not accurate.” Added Brandy the Ninja.

“But you look exactly alike!” The Captain said

“Not exactly.” Said Candy, “I’m slightly prettier.”

“You are not!” Said Brandy, “We do look the same.”

“And you both have the same birthday?” The Captain asked. 

“Yep.” Candy said.

“October sixteenth.” Brandy added.

“The same year?” Asked the Captain.

“Yes.” Candy and Brandy both answered at once.

“How about your parents?”

“Same mom.” Said Candy

“And the same dad.” Said Brandy.

The Captain sighed, “Then I don’t understand how you aren’t twins. But it really isn’t that important. Get out of my way; I’m trying to escape with the Orb of Marmac.”

But Candy and Brandy didn’t get out of the Captain’s way. They just stood there smiling. The Captain was about to push them apart and continue his escape when suddenly something hit him across the back of the head. 

All he heard was giggling as he collapsed into unconsciousness. 

WHO HIT THE CAPTAIN? HOW ARE MANDY AND BRANDY NOT TWINS? These questions in fact, have the same answer! Find out in the next thrilling chapter of “The Puzzling Tales of Captain Adventure!”
