Question: Leap Year is every 4 years. True or False ?
Answer: False. Every year that is exactly divisible by four is a leap year, except for years that are exactly divisible by 100, but these centurial years are leap years if they are exactly divisible by 400. For example, the years 1700, 1800, and 1900 are not leap years, but the years 1600 and 2000 are. So 3 out of every 400 years are not leap years.
Question: 3 men walk into a hotel. The room they want it is 30 dollars. They each pay ten. Once they get up to their room the manager realizes that the room was only supposed to be 25 dollars. He sends the bellboy up with 5 1 dollar bills. On the way to their room, the belly boy thinks "I can't split five 1s between five guys". So, he pockets 2 of the dollars and gives each of the men a dollar. Now, the men have only paid 9 dollars each. 9X3=27 and the bellboy pocketed 2 dollars which makes 29... Where is the other dollar?
Answer: There is no lost dollar: the order of operation was not followed. The bellboy still had 5 dollars to bring to the men.
