How much does a bottle of wine weigh if it is 1 kilogram plus half its own weight?
If we let half of the bottle’s weight be “n”, then we get the following equation: n/2 + 1kg = n (the bottle’s weight).
Solve for n:
n/2 + 1 = n
1 = n/2
2 = n

I’ve seen others like this and I have to say that they all confound me. I’m a college graduate and still it alludes me. Why???
