### Brain Teasers

# Money

After each day, you get one less than twice as many dollars as you got the day before. You get one dollar on March 26, so how many dollars did you get on March 21?

### Answer

The number 1 is one less than 2, so if 2 is twice as many dollars as you got the day before, then you got 1 dollar the day before since 2 is twice as much as 1. That means you got 1 dollar on the 26th and the 25th. You can do the same thing with March 25, until you get to March 21. You will get 1 dollar every day, and the pattern will never change.Answer: 1 dollar
