What is problem solving?
People use problem solving skills without knowing it on a daily basis. For example, when deciding on a school for their child or which route to take from work based on traffic jams, when trying to remember where they had put their phone, or how to organize a trip budget-wise.
Problem solving is one of the most important skills people can use to find solutions for specific problems in life by adhering to several steps along the way – understanding a problem, researching and collecting information, strategizing and brainstorming, choosing the best solution, action, and checking. The more they develop these steps, the better the problem solvers become, creating beneficial life standards for themselves.
Problem solving is particularly important for children, as it allows them to gain knowledge more efficiently, strengthen their creativity, communication, team spirit, financial, media and digital literacy, and build confidence.
Brainfinity Week – an event for problem solvers from around the world

Vladislav, Mladen and Ivan sat in the “Brain” kebab shop watching the five kebabs left on the plate. At one point there was a power outage for a minute, and after the electricity came back again, there were no kebabs on the plate anymore. The three of them ate the kebabs, and they know each one of them ate at least one. Also, all three of them have good logical skills.
Here is the conversation between them:
Vladislav: I don’t know how many kebabs each one of you ate.
Mladen: I don’t know how many kebabs each one of you ate either.
Ivan: I don’t know how many kebabs each one of you ate either.
Vladislav: Now I know how many kebabs each one of you ate.
Mladen: I also know how many kebabs each one of you ate.
Ivan: I still don’t know how many kebabs each one of you ate.
Nobody lied in the conversation. So what happened?
