1. ## 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?

2. I hate math

3. In my pocket...cus i was standing behind the shop assistant

4. who gives a fvck its 1 fvcking dollar im sure even the 3 flatmates dont care bout

it....this is not a true story/question rite?? its more like a quiz thing...hmm...

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.

7. Correctamundo!

Now whatever happened to those apples?

8. How about separating the apples in four and giving each person a quarter of each apple

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....
