Whatever, but the difference between .10 and a 1.10 is still a dollar.

I know the difference between a 1.00 and .10 is .90.

The question states the bat costs exactly 1.00 more than the ball not 1.05.


So I read this question is an experiment out of MIT. What if it's an experiment within a larger experiment to see if people can be forced to deny that which is blatantly true under peer pressure and invalidation.

As the other poster said, bullshit opfusacation.
And no, I don't bank with BOA, I've been with my local credit union for a few years now.

A lot of people get this wrong.

Shane Fredrick at MIT used this very question.

Fredrick posed this question to more than 3,000 students at eight different universities. Fewer than half gave the correct answer (5 cents). What did the rest say? You guessed it — 10 cents. That's the answer most people think of first, and which only some of them recognize as wrong. Although Frederick admits thinking “10 cents” when he first saw the problem, he was still stunned by how many people actually stayed with that as their “final answer.”

If a bird flew the ball to the moon, then it carshed back to earth, it would cost $0.10 to replace. Morans.
