Question: Man walks into a store and says to the shop owner: “I will spend $10 in your store if you double the amount of money I now have in my pocket.” Store owner agrees; doubles his money; he spends $10 and leaves. He repeats this at 2 more stores. When he leaves the 3rd store he has $0 dollars. How much money did he have in his pocket when he walked into the first store?
Answer: You have to solve this starting with the last store. This means he walked into the 3rd store with $5, had it doubled to $10 and spent the whole $10. He entered the 3rd store with $5.00. He spent $10, so he had $15 after his money was doubled. $15 / 2= Means he had $7.50 when he entered the 2nd store. He left the 1st store with $7.50. He spent $10 so he had $17.50 after his money was doubled; $17.50 divided by 2. So, he started out with $8.75 when he walked into the first store.
Question: Four hikers are forced into a cabin with no lights by a bad storm. On the door of the cabin is a sign that reads, "Come in as you please, but fall asleep and you will die." Being very superstitious, they all take this very seriously and devise a plan so they can all stay awake. They all stand in a corner and one person walks from one corner along the wall to the next and taps the person in that corner making sure they are awake. They do this for many hours until one hiker suddenly runs out of the cabin screaming along with all of the others.Why did they run out terrified?
Answer: They realized that it would take 5 people to execute this plan. There is one in every corner and one moving from one corner to another at all times. So somebody was already in the cabin.
