## The Devil Game

You die and the devil says he'll let you go to heaven if you beat him in a game. The devil sits you down at a perfectly round table. He gives himself and you an infinite pile of quarters. He says, "OK, we'll take turns putting one quarter down, no overlapping allowed, and the quarters must rest flat on the table surface. The first guy who can't put a quarter down loses." You guys are about to start playing, and the devil says that he'll go first. However, at this point you immediately interject, and ask if you can go first instead. You make this interjection because you are very smart and can place quarters perfectly, and you know that if you go first, you can guarantee victory. Explain how you can guarantee victory.
You place a quarter right in the center of the table. After that, whenever the devil places a quarter on the table, mimic his placement on the opposite side of the table.. If he has a place to place a quarter, so will you. The devil will run out of places to put a quarter before you do.

## A challenge for my son

A man told his son that he would give him \$1000 if he could accomplish the following task. The father gave his son ten envelopes and a thousand dollars, all in one dollar bills. He told his son, "Place the money in the envelopes in such a manner that no matter what number of dollars I ask for, you can give me one or more of the envelopes, containing the exact amount I asked for without having to open any of the envelopes. If you can do this, you will keep the \$1000." When the father asked for a sum of money, the son was able to give him envelopes containing the exact amount of money asked for. How did the son distribute the money among the ten envelopes?
The contents or the ten envelopes (in dollar bills) hould be as follows: \$1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 489. The first nine numbers are in geometrical progression, and their sum, deducted from 1,000, gives the contents of the tenth envelope.

## The missing dollar

Three people check into a hotel room. The bill is \$30 so they each pay \$10. After they go to the room, the hotel's cashier realizes that the bill should have only been \$25. So he gives \$5 to the bellhop and tells him to return the money to the guests. The bellhop notices that \$5 can't be split evenly between the three guests, so he keeps \$2 for himself and then gives the other \$3 to the guests. Now the guests, with their dollars back, have each paid \$9 for a total of \$27. And the bellhop has pocketed \$2. So there is \$27 + \$2 = \$29 accounted for. But the guests originally paid \$30. What happened to the other dollar?
This riddle is just an example of misdirection. It is actually nonsensical to add \$27 + \$2, because the \$27 that has been paid includes the \$2 the bellhop made. The correct math is to say that the guests paid \$27, and the bellhop took \$2, which, if given back to the guests, would bring them to their correct payment of \$27 - \$2 = \$25.
