Standing on a one way street, were two highway patrol officers, specifically looking for drivers who were in violation of local traffic laws.
A taxi driver was going the wrong way down the street, however, the officers did nothing. What explanation can you offer?
Hint: Do taxi drivers always drive their taxi?
The taxi driver was walking at the time and not driving their cab, therefore breaking no traffic laws.
Three people check into a hotel.
They pay £30 to the manager and go to their room.
The manager suddenly remembers that the room rate is £25 and gives £5 to the porter to return to the people.
On the way to the room the porter reasons that £5 would be difficult to share among three people so they keep £2 and give £1 to each person.
Now each person paid £10 and got back £1.
So they paid £9 each, totalling £27. The porter has £2, totalling £29.
Where is the missing £1?
Hint: Be careful of what you're adding.
We have to be careful what we are adding together.
Originally, they paid £30, they each received back £1, they now have only paid £27.
Of this £27, £25 went to the manager for the room and £2 went to the porter.
