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

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)
