Brandon at the Carnival

Brandon was walking around at the carnival. A man called out from a booth and said, “If I can write your exact weight on this piece of paper, you have to pay me $50. If I can’t do it, I’ll pay you $50.”

Brandon checked the booth for a scale but saw nothing. He agreed. Since your weight can fluctuate by a pound or two, he decided that no matter what number the man wrote, he would just say he weighed a pound more or less. In the end, the man in the booth won the $50. How did he do it?

The man in the booth wrote the words, “Your exact weight” on the piece of paper. Brandon paid up.

I thought the man said “I’ll write your exact weight”…nothing was said about GUESSING his weight…so he just said any number…as Brandon though he won and corrected him to his true weight. The man would write down his we weight and say, ” See! I Told you I would write your EXACT weight on my paper.
