## Last Week's Puzzle

The U.S. gymnastics team won 13 gold medals against two other countries. Of 60 total medals awarded, there were: 20 bronze, 20 silver, and 20 gold. Germany won 5 gold medals. Japan won one-third of all the medals and had an equal number of silver and bronze medals. How many silver and bronze medals did Japan win?

Japan won 9 bronze and 9 silver medals. Since Germany and the US won 18 of the 20 gold medals, Japan must have won the remaining 2 gold medals. There are 60 medals in all, and one-third of those are 20. 20 - 2 leaves 18 medals of combined bronze and silver for Japan.
