John really wanted to know how much money he would get from grandpa for his birthday. But grandpa didn't want to tell him. Instead he said: "You get so much!"
"But how much is so much?", John asked.
"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.
How much will John get?

...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"?"

However, if you read the question grandpa said, "You get so much!" ergo replace "so much" with "x" and start your algebra.

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.
