# Orange Juice

Trick
Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.Trick

Two boys went to their house to have a cold glass of orange juice. They got the pitcher of orange juice in the refrigerator and put some in two equal glasses. One boy poured 2/6 of the juice in his glass and the other one poured 3/6 of juice into his, for their mother instructed them to leave at least 1/6 of the juice. They argued because the other boy's juice was more than the other, so the boy agreed to drink some of the juice to make it fair to his brother. After he drank, his brother had more juice than him and they argued again and repeated the same procedures again to make their juices fair.

Finally, their juices became equal and they never argued again. What did they do?

This really doesn't make much sense at all. I mean, the answer's obvious, but the whole point of it is just dumb.

Long story short... Nah, short story long hah

What a stupid teaser

I hate to see so many negative comments--at least they tried!! It makes new people, like myself, scared to give it a go when I have a chance.

I kinda of got confused with him then the other brother... The next time could U please give them names?

duh!!

Real good teaser...but what's up with...this..........(don't take that offensively, it's just a joke. You made a good trick, be proud of yourself!)

It would be a lot easier if the boy had 2/6 drank 1/12 of the other brother's orange juice.

Then they would both get 5/12 and their mother would get 2/12 (1/6).

Good teaser, nevertheless, just a little easy.

1/6 of OJ, is enough for everybody. if everyone enjoyed 1/3 of the pitcher of OJ, then everyone is happy. I know I'm happy. Thats a fraction I understand.

Mommy was greedy, wanting 2/6 of OJ. 1/4 would have been sufficient.

Good Teaser.
