Well at least I got two of them correct, so I'm only partially demented. Go away, it's too early in the morning for this!

I saw this question years ago and someone told me that it is used quite often as a job interview question. It is NOT a trick question and I've had math teachers erroneously answer this question. Joe and Jim empty out all the money from their pockets and it adds up to \$20.00 total. Joe had \$19 more money than Jim. How much money does each person have? Did you answer Joe has \$19.00 and Jim has \$1.00? Wrong. The difference between \$19.00 and \$1.00 is \$18.00. Once again, how much money did each person have?

first and second question, there's alot of different answers because you can be lapping them or they can be lapping you

All great!
