funny how even the article wont explain how you end up with a value of 5 cents for the ball.

if the ball is 5 cents, and the first statement is that the bat costs 1 dollar more than the ball, how is the total money spent 1.10$?

my man up there has an equation that looks correct. but i see youve squared X. why? nobody said there were 2 balls. it states you bought a ball and a bat which cost 1 dollar and 10 cents. the bat is 1 dollar more than the ball. if the ball is 5 cents then why didnt you spend 1 dollar and 5 cents?

i feel like a retard.

At all this whole thread!!!! But I got it wrong too, because the wording is misleading and doesn't make you think of basic algebra! I hate fu*king algebra and math in general, but with the wording it still doesn't fit until someone says ohh yeah, this is an algebraic equation and not something you could use common sense with!

I think even algebra is taking it too far. It's a simple thing of semantics. When you hear "costs a dollar more" you're thinking of a dollar on top of another value, instead of thinking "oh, that means a dollar more with the same value". Had it been worded more carefully, more people would have gotten it right. That's another way the article proves its point. I think it's an interesting little study of the human brain.

or

I agree because many smart people especially those with high iq levels lack common sense.
I've found that smart people also dont role play business scenarios out in their head so when they do happen they know what angle to take to create a favorable outcome.

Reminds me of the episode of this.
