Something to think about ...

Postby ReVoMaster » Tue Mar 03, 2009 11:51 pm

Tom, Bob and Mark wanted to buy a ReVoMaze. It was for sale at £30.

Tom had £10, Bob had £10 and Mark had £10.

So they clubed together and brought it for £30.

After leaving the store, the shopkeeper thought - that ReVoMaze was in the sale for £25. So taking 5 x £1 coins from the till, he ran after them.

Just before he reached them, he decided to pocket £2 and give them £1 each back.

Here is the thing: Tom, Bob and Mark paid £10 and got £1 back making £9 paid. So each of them paid £9 making £27. The shopkeeper kept £2

Who had the other £1? :?

:twisted:

Unfortunately 5 mins ago :D but now I have to act like I'm still working on it and that's it's VERY hard or my GF might not buy me anymore ;)

I like it, it's going on my desk at work just to annoy people. I work with a lot of smart people but they seem to have a hard time with mechanical puzzles :lol:
