Where has the other 1p gone?
Following an interesting day I sat down with my OH and my 2 children for our tea, when my OH decided to completely blow my mind. He told me this riddle which he heard at work and since that point I haven’t been able to figure it out.
Therefore I am calling everyone for your help to understand the solutions.
3 Friends walked into a shop to buy some chocolate. They gave the shop keeper 30p and he said:
“The chocolate bar is only 25p so I’ll give you all (3 men) 1p back each and I’ll keep 2p myself”
Therefore each person had spent 9p each on the chocolate bar (10p-1p=9p)
But if we add up everything:
3 x 9p = 27p
2p (that the shop keeper kept)
Equals = 29p???
So where is the other 1p gone
Please help explain this as my brain is baffled!!!
