Try to Solve This Impossible Problem Throughout History.

Now, everyone please gather around! Let’s focus on a fun little puzzle that has puzzled many people throughout history. All set? Now let’s get started!

Imagine this: For $60, a guy purchases a horse. When he gets to another market, he waltzes over and sells it for $70. Sensing a hint of trader’s itch, he spends $80 to buy the identical horse back. But get this—he’s not finished yet! Once again, our adventurous horse trader sells it for $90. A frenzy of dealings, isn’t that right? Let’s now unravel this mathematical puzzle.

Let’s examine each transaction in detail to better understand our horse-trading friend’s financial feats (insert dramatic music here):

Thus, $10 + $10 = $20 is the total.

And voilà! The man profited handsomely ($20) from all this hoopla surrounding horses. It all comes down to viewing each transaction as a unique component of the larger picture.
