This week's mindbender has been adapted from a puzzle I found in the excellent "Penguin Book of Curious and Interesting Puzzles" by David Wells. In the original puzzle beer was only 20p a pint!
Half a pint of Batemans costs exactly one pound, while Worthington costs 90p. The first stranger put down a £1 coin on the counter. The second man put down a 50p piece and five 10p coins. If he had wanted Worthington he would only have put down 90p.
