Truly Something

the riddle is back!

hey everyone! (which really means sethimine, peachsupreme, and occasionally her sister poppycorn) i havent done my usual riddles in a while so i decided i would do 2 today. both of these seem really easy but most people get them wrong. i sure did. take a guess! ill give the answer if someone answers it right or in a week if no one does.

 the first one i may have already told sethimine so if u know it keep your trap shut.

1. a ball and a bat together cost $1.10. the bat is $1.00 more than the ball. how much is the ball?

ok the next one i read in a book and i understand if you dont understand. its called the Monty Hall Problem.

2. Youre on a game show, and the host shows you three doors. behind one is a car. behind the other 2 are goats.(obviously, you want the car) whatever door you pick the host will open one of the 2 you didnt pick and open it to reveal a goat. the host will then ask you if you want to switch to the remaining door, or stay at this one. should you switch or stay?

alright, there they are. have at it! and the first one to answer the second one correctly gets… well, you dont get anything. BUT wont it feel good?

    the second one is (since no one else guessed) is to switch. since the host opened of of the goats doors, there is a 2/3 chance that switching will give you a car.

    thank you and goodnight!

  2. 1. $0.05
    2. (i’d rather ride on a goat) i guess i would stay

      very good. did you get that on the first try?

      Answer: #1 is a good way to tell how someone thinks. if you think instincively, you would probably guess 10 cents, because you would subtract $1 from $1.10, where reading it through will tell you that the bat is a dollar more, or $1.05, whick makes the ball 5 cents.

      since there really is no real way to answer the second one correctly, what im really looking for is the best chance at getting the car, and why.
