A special integer exists in mathematics that shows a special property. If you subtract any number from that integer, the result will always be divisible by the successor of that number completely.

Do you know what that integer is ?

Do you know what that integer is ?

Hint:

The required integer is -1.

For an example, let us subtract 7 from -1.

-1 - 7 = -8

Now the successor of 7 is 8 and (-8) is exactly divisible by 8.

You can try that for any number and it will hold true.

YES NO

## 100 Blank Cards Riddle

Someone offers you the following deal:

There is a deck of 100 initially blank cards. The dealer is allowed to write ANY positive integer, one per card, leaving none blank. You are then asked to turn over as many cards as you wish. If the last card you turn over is the highest in the deck, you win; otherwise, you lose.

Winning grants you $50, and losing costs you only the $10 you paid to play.

Would you accept this challenge?

Winning grants you $50, and losing costs you only the $10 you paid to play.

Would you accept this challenge?

Hint: Perhaps thinking in terms of one deck is the wrong approach.

Yes!

A sample strategy:

Divide the deck in half and turn over all lower 50 cards, setting aside the highest number you find. Then turn over the other 50 cards, one by one, until you reach a number that is higher than the card you set aside: this is your chosen "high card."

Now, there is a 50% chance that the highest card is contained in the top 50 cards (it is or it isn't), and a 50% chance that the second-highest card is contained in the lower 50. Combining the probabilities, you have a 25% chance of constructing the above situation (in which you win every time).

This means that you'll lose three out of four games, but for every four games played, you pay $40 while you win one game and $50. Your net profit every four games is $10.

Obviously, you have to have at least $40 to start in order to apply this strategy effectively.
