## Weird Logic Problem

I need help with this problem. I worked on this but only got to certain point. Thanks

A Conductor, a Brakeman, and a Porter are employed on a Train running between Chicago and New York. Their names are Tom, Rick, and Harry, but are not necessarily in that order. On the same Train are 3 Passengers of the same names - Tom, Rick, and Harry. We shall distinguish them from the trainmen of the same names by using the prefix "Mr." in front of the Passengers' names.

A) Mr. Tom lives in New York City

B) The Brakeman lives halfway between New York and Chicago

C) Rick beat the porter in a pool game

D) Mr. Harry earns exactly \$10,700 per year

E) The Brakeman's nearest neighbor, who is one of the 3 Passengers mentioned above, earns exactly 3 times as much as the Brakeman

F) The Passenger living in Chicago has the same name as the Brakeman

G) What is the name of the Conductor?

From the above informations, I figured out that Rick is the Brakeman, but that's it. Please help me! Thank You

Here is a hint: \$10,700 is NOT a multiple of three.

Yes, that information leads to conclude that Harry is a brakeman, Rick is a Conductor, and Tom is a Poster. Is that Right?
�Rick is a brakeman� is not what I get.
If �Brakeman lives halfway between New York and Chicago� so does his nearest neighbor.

PKA
Sounds good to me.

TTFN,
