Can you work this out?

Postby Tonyblack » Mon Jun 29, 2009 3:52 pm

Here's a puzzle for you:

An item costs 35 pence. If I buy 21 it will cost me 70 pence. If I buy 144 it will cost me £1.05. What is the item? :?


Feel free to use this thread to add other mind bending puzzles. :wink:

It's an absolute bargain is what it is.

I'll have a sensible think though & see if I can come up with a proper answer!
