Three men in a cafe order a meal the total cost of which is $15. They each contribute $5. The waiter takes the money to the chef who recognizes the three as friends and asks the waiter to return $5 to the men.
The waiter is not only poor at mathematics but dishonest and instead of going to the trouble of splitting the $5 between the three he simply gives them $1 each and pockets the remaining $2 for himself.
Now, each of the men effectively paid $4, the total paid is therefore $12. Add the $2 in the waiters pocket and this comes to $14…..where has the other $1 gone from the original $15?

Four Martians from different groups, the Uti,
Grundi, Yomi and Rafi, gathered for an intraplanetary
conference to discuss the problem of the visiting Earthlings.
As was appropriate for diplomatic envoys, all
were beautifully feathered in different colors, one red,
one green, one blue and the fourth brown. Their names
were Aken, Bal, Mun and Wora.
1. Before the meeting, the Uti had a pleasant breakfast
with Mun.
2. After debating with the Martians in the blue and
the brown feathers, Bal and the Yomi were so angry
that they tore a wingful of feathers out of them
before they were stopped.
3. Wora and the Rafi, however, agreed with the diplomat
with brown feathers, though they disagreed
with the redfeathered Grundi.
Who is the bluefeathered diplomat and to what
group does he or she belong?View SolutionSubmit Solution 3895 views
