# Confirmation Bias Puzzle - Is there a way to do this?

By

Hello everyone -

A client would like to recreate the Confirmation Bias Puzzle where are 3 boxes.

Learner enters a number into each box.

The rule is that the numbers MUST be in increasing orders.

They would enter the 3 numbers in increasing order and click enter, the result would say "this follows the rule".

If they enter a number into each box that is not in increasing order and click enter, the result would say "this doesn't follow the rule"

I'll include the link if my explanation needs further clarification.

I realize this is very specific but if anyone has any ideas...that would be great.

Thanks Y'all!

FYI: Here's more info about variables and conditions:

Note: So, that part is doable. However, it's harder to check whether the user has really figured out the rule. You could have them type something into a short-answer question. But they'd have to type *exactly* what you indicate is correct. Or you could just show them the rule if they get a certain number of tries in a row correct, or after a certain number of attempts. To do that, you'd need more variables. :-)

Judy - thank you so much!!!! This is amazing!!!!
