The Waiter

Three men in a cafe order a meal the total cost of which is £15. They each contribute £5. The waiter takes the money to the chef who recognizes the three as friends and asks the waiter to return £5 to the men.

The waiter is not only poor at mathematics but dishonest and instead of going to the trouble of splitting the £5 between the three he simply gives them $1 each and pockets the remaining £2 for himself.

Now, each of the men effectively paid £4, the total paid is therefore £12. Add the £2 in the waiters pocket and this comes to £14…..where has the other £1 gone from the original £15?

The Father

A mother is 21 years older than her child. In exactly 6 years from now, the mother will be exactly 5 times as old as the child.

Where’s the father?
