A duck, a goose, a goat and a horse all entered the barn at different times one day last week.

A mammal entered the barn first

The duck entered before the goose

The goose entered ahead of the horse
Who entered the barn first?

A sweater you want usually sells for $100 at a local clothing store, but the retailer is holding a rare onetime sale this weekend. The sale price for the sweater is 50% off double the retail price. Is this a good deal?
Correct Answer
B. No
Explanation
The sale price for the sweater is 50% off double the retail price. This means that the sale price would be 50% off of $200, which is $100. However, the original price of the sweater is $100, so the sale price is actually the same as the original price. Therefore, this is not a good deal as there is no discount on the sweater.

The Deal: $15 for $30 at Joe’s Bar & Grill
Not valid on tax or tip – Limit one per table  Valid 11 a.m.10:30 p.m.; not valid for breakfast – Must be used in entirety in one visit – No cash back  Not valid on alcohol – Expires three months from date of sale 
The normal price for 12 oz. beers at Joe’s Bar and Grill is $5, but on weekdays from 46 p.m. they have happy hour specials for $2 Miller Lite and $3 Budweiser. The prices have the 7% tax and 20% gratuity included in them, but this Referral is not valid toward tax or tip. If you order two Miller’s and a Bud, how much will you have left on your voucher?
Correct Answer
B. $30
Explanation
The voucher is not valid on tax or tip, so the total amount spent on the beers will be deducted from the voucher. Since the voucher amount is $30, and the total cost of the beers is $10 ($2 Miller Lite x 2 + $3 Budweiser), there will be $30  $10 = $20 left on the voucher. Therefore, the correct answer is $20.
