There was once a girl who was always jealous of her sister. One day a genie appeared and told her that he was "half magic" which meant that he could grant her wishes, but her sister would always get two times more than she did. She had three wishes. First, she wishes that she was the richest person in the world, but her sister soon became the richest because she got two times the money. Her second wish was that she was the most beautiful woman in the world, but her sister gets twice as much beauty.

The third wish is that she would want a heart attack, so that her sis will get 2, or something like that.

If that's the case, that's pretty lame.

Pig? That doesn't make any sense. It stinks when it's alive and it REEKS when it's dead! These riddles are biased.

ns80

Let x be the dollar amount and y be the cent amount on the refund check:

Amount on refund check in cents = 100x + y
What the teller gave her in cents = 100y + x
What she had when she reached home = 100y + x - 5

So
2(100x+y) = 100y+x+5
=> 199x+5 = 98y

2 unknowns, both should be integers, 99x99 possibilities (not exactly, would be much less), and an equation with such big coefficients, 199 being prime :Ksp:

Ran a program varying x and y from 1 to 99 and got x = 31, y = 63

Actually there are 2 different equations possible like:
y=2x or y=2x+1 (the fact that the amount is doubled by flipping the numbers, but that would'nt yield a integer solution).

1 = one = 3 (three letters in the word, 'one')
2 = two = 3 (three letters in the word, 'two')
3 = three = 5 (five letters in the word 'three')..
...
11 = eleven = 5
12 = twelve = 6

To the question: "What question could you never answer 'yes' to?" because saying "Yes!" as an answer to that will only prove you are a dolt! :ee:
