    Talking Three flatmates...

    Three flatmates go to buy a kettle

    The go into a shop and see one they like for $30

    They take the kettle to the counter and pay $10 each

    The shop assistant scans the kettle and tells them it's on offer

    The kettle only costs $25, so the assistant owes them $5

    The shop assistant gives them each $1

    He has $2 left over which the men let him keep as a tip


    If each flatmate has paid $9 and the shop assistant has $2 where did the other $1 go?

    Today, I already had a math flop.....
    How about this.......
    2 mothers and 2 daughters go to a park. They see a boy with 3 apples in a basket. Each one wants an apple. How do you seperate the apples, so that each mother and dauhgter get an equal amount?

    this is a word trick that exploits the idea that the flatmates paid $30 for the kettle. the fact is, since they all got one dollar back, they only paid nine dollars each - so they contributed a total of $27 for something that costs $25. The two dollars left over are given to the assistant.

    they're not working with $30 dollars anymore since they each get a dollar back, the total money being utilized is only $27. $25 for kettle, $2 for assistant.

    MEh , why should the boy give them the apples neway?? Unless they show him all their apples at once then maybe...other than that he should tell em to **** off..and go buy their own apples...

    Here's the deal....There is a grandmother, her daughter ( a mother ), and the mother's daughter ( grand-daughter ).
    The grandmother is the first mother, her daughter is the second mother. (these are the two mothers). Also, the mother is the daughter of the grandmother, and the mother's daughter is the other daughter (these are the two daughters)...So, in those three people, there are 2 mothers and 2 daughters....
    There is no need to split up the apples.

    I'm eating KFC yummy......IFX, I want some cookies....

    A boy has an accident

    His father rushes him to hospital

    The boy is taken into the operation theatre

    Moments later the doctor comes out of the theatre saying

    "I can't operate on him, he's my son"
