Brain Tease Tuesday Week 46
Have you managed to work out this week's Brainteaser yet? It was placed on our Facebook page this morning.
If you've come here looking for the answer, then look no further...
This weeks brainteaser asked you to solve the following:
You see a shirt for £97, you can't afford it
so you borrow £50 from your sister and
£50 from your brother, which equals £100.
You buy the shirt and get £3 change
so you give your brother £1 and your sister £1 back and you keep the other pound.
You now owe your sister £49 and brother £49,
49+49 = 98 + your £1 = 99.
Where's the missing £1?
scroll down for the answer
There is no missing pound.
You've already paid back 1 pound each to your parents so the total debt should only add up to 98, and it does.
You owe your sister £49 and your brother £49 and you have 1 pound + a shirt.
The '+ your £1' bit is the part in there to confuse you.
