It was going to be another really hot day, but Ted needed a new pair of cool sunnies* before he could hit the surf. He needed another $52 to buy the ones he wanted.

Ted decided to sell home-made smoothies at his gate: $2 each, or three for $4. He had the $52 after selling 32 smoothies, stopped work and headed off to the beach.

How many smoothies had been sold at the $2 price?


* sunnies = sunglasses in New Zealand & Australia

what if he sold 20 @ $2 =$ 40
and 9 @ 3 for 4 = $12

Or
sold 22 @ $2 = $44
and 6 @ 3 for 4 = $8

I haven't done all the math but there may be other solutions too.

he could have sold 16 at $3 = $48 and two at $2 = $4 with adds up to the $52 needed. There are numerous answers to this teaser.

Hey guys - read the Teaser properly! If you ignore one important detail, yes, there's lots of solutions! BUT ... there's one correct solution only. Have another look.
