"If I gave you so much, plus so much, plus the half of so much, plus 1/4 of so much, plus 1 EURO, you would have 100 EURO's.

 bluetwo Sep 06, 2002 X + X + X/2 + X/4 + 1 = 100 (user deleted) Aug 26, 2003 quite easy actually, but good though! chrisj Aug 26, 2003 ...The question simply states "How much will John get?" Therefore the answer is 100 EURO's, not 36 The question should have been "How much is "so much"?" (user deleted) Aug 26, 2003 However, if you read the question grandpa said, "You get so much!" ergo replace "so much" with "x" and start your algebra. Jimbo May 13, 2012 The answer is fine. He said he would give so much. Then he said if I gave you .... didn't say he would give him 100 Euros. easy teaser.
