BRAIN TEASER

Three men go into a shop and buy a radio for £21.00 . ie £7.00 Each. As they are leaving the shop assisstant realizes there was a five pound discount. She calls the men back and decides she will just give them £1.00 back each and keep the other £2.00 for herself (naughty). This means each man has only now spent £6.00 .

So 6 x 3 is £18.00.

The shop assisstant kept £2.00

That makes £20.00

The Question is WHERE HAS THE OTHER POUND GONE?????

Total paid was £21.00 until the £5 discount. So Three Men £7 each Then £1 back each. So £6 is the cost to each man and £2 in The assisstants pocket = £20

Where is that pound

Cream, Digital with auto tuning, and 2 woofers

I think that pound coin was a forgery! All the ones I have ever seen where either made of paper or were a goldish colour.

What if she gave them 50p instead of a pound. That would of made the cost to each man as £6.50. Total spend = £19.50.

So if there was £3.50 left out of the £5 discount. The total price would be £23.

Your dragging this out. Trying to mislead us away from the facts. 21-5=16 16+3=19 19+2=21 so there you have it. It was never missing just try to sway us with the cashier taking 2.

No you dont get it. 3 men lets say you and two mates go in a shop and hand over £7 each for a radio total cost £21. on your way out the shop assisstant calls you back because she has realised there is a five pound discount.

But being naughty she just gives you back £1 each . so you and your two mates have only now spent £6 each. FACT

The assistant keeps the other 2 for herself. FACT

SO £6 each x3 - £18

£2 kept by assistant

So 6x3=18 + 2 = 20 Fact. So i ask again WHERE IS THE OTHER POUND.

ALGEBRA FORMULA

A x T - D + W = S - ? ( Where ? is the missing £1)

The pound was lost as each buyer should have paid £5.33 each. So the only loser is the shop as each lad made 67 pence on the deal. The shop girl made two pounds leaving the shop to take a loss of £1..it's not us making the mistake it's the shop girl as she should have refunded all buyers and the divided the final cost, ripping them off or not, by 3......lol
