A shop sells chocolates @ Rs.1 each. You can exchange 3 wrappers for 1 chocolate.
If you have Rs.15/- how many chocolates can you get totally?

You'd get 21 chocolates + have two wrappers which would come in handy when you buy one more chocolate for (Rs. # 16/-) and use its wrapper + the other two to get one more chocolate....

you got it wrong Faraaj. It is 22

15 chocolates = 15 wrappers = 5 chocolates more = 5 wrappers = 1 more chocolate + 2 wrappers = 3 wrappers = 1 more chocolate

Here is one from me

The Perfect Square Dance!

Sally invited 17 guests to a dance party. She assigned each guest a number from 2 to 18, keeping 1 for herself. The sum of each couple's numbers was a perfect square. What was the number of Sally's partner?

Hi
The last chocolate earned from 5 wrappers also has a wrapper of its own which is used to add to the remaining other two wrappers and 2+1=3. that adds another chocoate which makes the total 22. Harjinder

Yogi, Exon's answer is for lakshmi's puzzle. And his answer to that puzzle is correct i.e. 15

Nopes do the math again, 22 is what you get.

15 = 15 wrappers - 15/3 = 5 chocolates (total till now 15+5 = 20)

out of 5 wrappers use 3 (2 wrappers left) to get one more chocolate (total chocolates 15+5+1=21)

remaining 2 wrappers with one chocolate wrapper get another chocolate (total 15+5+1+1 = 22)
