**Riddle #1**

The answer is 20. Tom will have to paint the number 8 20 times.

(8, 18, 28, 38, 48, 58, 68, 78, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 98).

**Riddle #2**

The answer is 11 cartons.

As, 4x10= 40 boxes

7x8 = 56 boxes

40+56= 96 boxes

Hence, 11 cartons.

**Riddle #3**

The number is 141.

The second digit of the number 4 is four times bigger than the third digit. (4=1x4)

The first digit 1 is three less than the second digit 4 (1=4-3)

**Riddle #4**

The answer is zero (0). As 0 x any number is always 0.

**Riddle #5**

Let the number be x.

So according to the question, {(x+x) x 4}/8 = x

=> (2x x 4)/8 = x

=> 8x/8= x

=> x=x

Hence, the number could be any number, as the above equation holds true in all cases.
