 xdbtcp Jun 15, 2009 I thought use a twenty and two 5's, pay the rest with quarters... Paladin Jun 16, 2009 Easy, but cute and fun. HarryPutter Jun 16, 2009 Didn't the hint just totally give it away? braingle100 Jun 17, 2009 Pretty sly,you. YeahIGotABronco Jun 19, 2009 I thought of giving a \$50 and a \$5 and they give you back a \$20. Shelilah Jun 23, 2009 Yeah I thought the same thing as YeahIGotABronco (user deleted) Jun 28, 2009 Better if you clearly specify the available bills. Nicky101 Aug 02, 2009 I like this one; very fun! Just one thing, though: I think it belongs in the "Trick" category, instead of logic. We naturally assume one person has to use the three bills when in fact you can exchange bills with your creditor. Just a small detail . Matthew21v33-41 Sep 26, 2011 I thought the same as the one who said pay three bills+the rest in quarters kitty-cat Apr 25, 2013 I thought they used a check, and the bills were on the hats they were wearing. Well, that's two, and there was a duck in the room. There. Perfect. Good teaser! spikethru4 Apr 25, 2013 The question asks, "Using only three bills...", not "Using three bills and anything else you can think of...". Hence, quarters, hats and ducks are banned!
