## Bat And Ball Riddle

If a baseball and a bat cost $1.10 together, and the bat costs $1.00 more than the ball, how much does the ball cost?

Hint: The answer isn't 10 cents.

Here's the solution:

Although $1.00 + $0.10 does equal $1.10, if you take $1.00 $0.10 you get $0.90, but the problem requires that the bat costs $1 more than the ball.

So, the ball must cost $0.05, and the bat must cost $1.05 since $1.05 + $0.05 = $1.10

---

Still not convinced? You can use algebra to solve the problem:

First, lets set up the equation:

x + ($1.00 + x) = $1.10

$1.00 + 2x = $1.10

2x = $1.10 $1.00

2x = $0.101

Finally, solve for x:

x = $0.05

Check your work:

x + ($1.00 + x) = $1.10, so

$0.05 + ($1.00 + $0.05) = $1.10

YES NO
