Teaser -|- Tomorrows
Tom went to town with $50, but returned at night with $150. He bought a hat at a clothing store and some apples at the market, then he had his eyes tested.
Here are a few facts:
Tom gets paid every Thursday by check.
The banks are only open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The eye doctor is closed on Saturday.
The market stays closed on Thursday and Friday.
On what day did the man go to town?
Since Tom returned with more money that he left with, he must have gone on a day when the bank was open. So he must have gone on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday. But, he got his eyes tested, and since the eye doctor is closed on Saturday, it could not have been Saturday. He also went to the market which is closed Thursday and Friday, so that eliminates Thursday, so it must have been a Tuesday when he went to town.
