    If you had two fishes named one and two, if one died you'd still have two.

    But two died you'd still have one.

    Please explain.

    I suppose you think 9 X 3 = 27. Explain this one then.

    There were three women sharing a house, and they agreed to divide all the
    expenses evenly. They each paid a third of the rent, a third of the
    telephone bill and a third of all the groceries.


    One day they decided to buy a television, and went down to the second-hand
    shop where there was an old black & white TV in the window for 30. They
    each handed over 10 and carried the TV away.


    As they left, the salesman went to his boss and said, "I just managed to
    get rid of that old TV in the window."


    "For how much?", replied the boss.


    "Thirty ponds.", said the salesman.


    "Oh, no. It's on sale for only 25. Catch up with them and give them their
    change.", ordered the boss.


    The salesman took five 1 coins out of the till and ran down the road. On
    the way, he thought to himself, "Well, these women split everything between
    them; how am I going to divide five 1 coins between three people?"


    He decided not to bother. He'd give them a 1 coin each and would pocket
    the other 2 for himself, who would ever know!


    He caught up with them and gave each of them a coin.

    Q.) How much did each of the women pay for the TV?
    A.) They paid 10 each and they each got 1 back, so that makes it 9.

    Q.) And what is three times nine?
    A.) Twenty-seven!

    Q.) How much did the salesman keep?
    A.) Two pounds

    Q.) And what is twenty-seven plus two?
    A.) Twenty-nine

    Q.) So where's the other pound?

    the question doesnt go with the math. Why would you give three and then add two.

    Actually, after the fiver was taken out of the till, each woman has paid 8.33 and one third of a penny.

    Add to that the pound each that the salesman returned and you get 9.33 and one third of a penny.

    Multiply by three and that gives you precisely 28. The salesman has 2 in his pocket.

    28 + 2 = 30
