Another Math puzzle
Don't google for answer and ruin the fun. It took me under 6 minutes to solve this.
A guy walks in a 711 (a chain of neighborhood convenient stores in the US) and picks up a loaf of bread, eggs, butter and milk. He gets to the checkout counter and is as usual greeted by Mr. Patel, who has just migrated from India after completing his PhD in Math. Mr. Patel  That would be $7.11 Customer  7.11 he he! what a conincidence, and I see that you beat the cash register. Mr. Patel  He he. Easy all I needed to do was multipy the prices Customer (surprized)  What? you multiplied them? you are supposed to add them. Mr. Patel  Sorry, I was working on some Math problem, but even when I add them, the total is still $7.11 Can you figure the prices of each of the 4 items ? P1 x P2 x P3 x P4 = 7.11 P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 = 7.11

$1.20, $1.25, $1.50, and $3.16
If it really, really took you 6 mins you must be a x86 masquerading as a human .......... PS. It took me only a few mouse cliks

1.7775?
4X=7.11 therefo, X = 7.11/4 = 1.7775 1.7775 * 4 = 7.11 1.7775 + 1.7775 + 1.7775 + 1.7775 = 7.1105 i cAnt believe itz as simple as this

Going by simple maths,it is not possible to solve these equations since there are 4 variables and 2 equations.Ya need to have 4 equations to find out 4 variables unless you do hit and trials...
Hit and trials don't count in mathematics....
