## Where do the Numbers Belong?

Three numbers, 16, 14 and 38, need to be assigned to one of the rows of numbers below. Where do the numbers belong?

A |
0 | 6 | 8 | 9 | 3 |

B |
15 | 27 | 21 | 10 | 19 |

C |
7 | 1 | 47 | 11 | 17 |

Hint: This is not a mathematical problem. The numerical values are irrelevant.

The rows indicate the shape of the number. Row A is rounded, B is mixed and C is linear. Thus, 16 belongs in row B, 14 in row C and 38 in row A.

Would be easier if the rows were shown.

You’re right, the table was supposed to be part of the teaser, not the answer. It’s now fixed.
