When you place the quarter and the dime
in the middle of the table, couldn't you
put the dime underneath it in the first
place?

if you cant touch it with anything at all, then you have to lift the quarter off the table... how, you ask? with your magical powers, i guess..........

At first I said, place the quarter on top of the dime to start with. Then I read the ckue and it was obvious.

Fun the hint kinda gave it away but i liked it. Hmm...I think I'm gonna try it on someone.

i agree with roman phoenix
i mean, the quarter and dime cant both be in the middle of the table unless one is on top of the other.
If they were next to eachother, one of the coins would have to be off center.
other than that, i thought it was really creative and good!

Or you could pick the quarter up and place the dime under it - still not touching it with "anything at all," treating that as an object itself!

I liked it so HA all my friends who never try trick brain teasers!

I thought the answer was going to be that the dime is worth less than the quarter. To me that makes more sense.
