    The first one is a paradox and doesn't have an answer. How is the third one tricky? It seems pretty straightforward.

    It doesn't. By picking at random, there's a 50% chance you'll pick 25%, and a 25% chance you'll pick 50%. So if the correct answer was 50%, you'd have a 25% chance of picking that answer, but then the correct answer would be 25%, and there's a 50% chance of getting that one, but then the correct answer would be 50%... and so on. Recursion.

    Of course, that's assuming you're picking an answer from the four given, and not the entire range of possible answers (the question doesn't specify).

    you can only take 5 from 25 once .....after that you would be subtracting from 20 , then 15 , then 10 , then 5

    Alright, answer time.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Probabilities (or math in general) have never been my strong suit, so I'm probably way off.

    Only tricky one seems to be the first since both 50% and 25% are valid answers...:unsure:
    Anyway, I answered 50%, 1, yes! Give me the money!
