the money of each of the other players. That is, he gave each player just as
much money as each had in his pocket. They played seven games and,
strange to say, each won a game in turn in the order of their names, which
began with the letters A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.

A man went into a bank with a thousand dollars, all in dollar bills, and ten
bags. He said, “Place this money, please, in the bags in such a way that if I
call and ask for a certain number of dollars you can hand me over one
or more bags, giving me the exact amount called for without opening any of
the bags.”
How was it to be done? We are, of course, only concerned with a single
application, but he may ask for any exact number of dollars from one to one
thousand.View SolutionSubmit Solution 1,264.6K views

neither owed the other anything, which entirely convinced Willie of the folly
of labor. Can you tell just how many days’ work he put in and on how many
days he idled?View SolutionSubmit Solution 1,265.9K views
