The Teaser

1. You have two pencils, a good one and a cheap one. The good one costs $1.00 more than the cheap one. You spend $1.10 for both. How much did the cheap one cost?

2. How much dirt is in a hole that is 3 ft. deep, and 6 inches in diameter?

 

The Solution

1. Five cents. The expensive one was $1.05. If you thought the answer was $1.00 and .10 cents, that does not meet the requirements. $1.00 is not $1.00 more than .10 cents, it is .90 cents more.

2. None. A hole only has air in it, no dirt.
