Math brain teasers require computations to solve.
A book costs $5.00 plus one half of its price. How much does the book cost?

|1/2 * 5 != 5|

|The book cost $10 so 1/2 is 5$. The book cost $5 + half it's price ($5) = $10|

|I almost said $7.50 but then I realized the real answer. I like the teaser, very clever!|

|Come on people, it's obvious that $5 = 1/2 the price of the book.|
"A book costs 1/3 of its price plus $5." $5 = 2/3 the price of the book.
Simple, simple math, not clever.
