Each Friday I pose a riddle or what I like to think of as a “brain teaser” for those who like that sort of thing. I freely admit, I’m often stumped, but perhaps you’ll figure out this week’s riddle. Share it with your colleagues or friends if you need help.
I confirm answers posted as comments in the afternoon to give people a chance to respond.
This week’s riddle: You overhear a man talking to a clerk at your hardware store. The clerk says to the customer, “One will cost you 12 cents, ten will cost your 24 cents, and one hundred will cost you 36 cents.” What is the man buying?
