Friday Q&A: The missing dollar puzzle
Posted by on Apr 16th, 2010

Ok, so its almost time for sundowners, but why don’t you try and give this little Friday Q&A a go just to exercise your brain cells before you kill them with some coffee Patron over the weekend.

The Missing Dollar puzzle:

A guy wants to buy a present for his girlfriend but he doesn’t have enough cash so he borrows $10 from his three best friends giving him $30 to spend.

He finds a present thats worth $25 dollars. So now he has $5 left. He goes back to the three friends and gives them each $1 dollar  leaving him with $2.

So he now owes each guy $9 dollars and he’s still left with $2 dollars.

But $9 x 3 = $27  ..add that to the $2 he has left and you get $29.

What happened to the missing dollar!?
