Two fathers and two sons sat down to eat eggs for breakfast. They ate exatly three eggs, each person had an egg. How did this happen?

3 generations.

The grandfather (who is a father), father (who is a father and a son), and the son.

That isn't really math though. It's more logic. Like....a plane crashed on the border of North and South Dakota. Where do you bury the survivors?

It's a grandpa, papa, and son. Too easy.

I'm still @ a loss. :confused:

EDIT: I think I get it now. Three eggs total & the one son is the father of one of the sons?

enjoi -- this has very little to do with math, and your other 'riddle' was a trivial property of exponents. what's the point of these threads?

Or like, if a rooster lays an egg on the top of a roof, which way does it roll?

How do you find the population of Mexico?
Roll a dime down a hill.
How do you find the richest person in Mexico?
It's the person who picked up the dime.

And I'm not racist, I just find those really amusing.
I think it's because of all the seriousness nowadays with racial
prejudice; taking a serious subject lightly has always been
something I've found fun to do.

Back to the subject:

Three lawyers rent a hotel room for the night. When they get to the hotel they pay the $30 fee, then go up to their room. Soon the bellhop brings up their bags and gives the lawysers back $5 because the hotel was having a special discount that weekend. So the three lawyers decide to each keep one of the $5 dollars and to give the bellhop a $2 tip. However, when they sat down to tally up their expenses for the weekend the could not explain the following details:

Each one of them had originally paid $10 (towards the initial $30), then each got back $1 which meant that they each paid $9. Then they gave the bellhop a $2 tip. HOWEVER, 3 $9 + $2 = $29

The lawyers couldn't figure out what happened to the other dollar. After all, the three paid out $30 but could only account for $29.

Can you determine what happened?

they each paid 9 dollars for the combined room and tip, and put one dollar back in their pocket: 3*9 + 3 = 30. 3*9 = 27 = 25 (room) + 2 (tip).

OK THEN A NEW ONE (it's not really hard)

How can you add eight 8's to get the number 1,000? (only use addition)
