In a case of 3, person A, B, and C. Assuming we're looking from the perspective of C. I think I understand. That is I make an assumption that I'm not green. So according to my assumption each other one sees one green eyed person and should leave in two nights. When they don't that means my assumption is wrong. Therefore I leave.

Now in a case of four, looking from the perspective of person D I'm having trouble understanding how to say the same thing.
Two is easy enough to get (eventually for some), three is the same process and you got it, just keep the same pattern going for four up to 100.  Remember, in the story they were all logicians so this was easy for them.  :D

I saw this from BRIGHTSIDE on YouTube. At first I thought right away that one answer was correct. Then I saw other people's  answers and changed my mind. After thinking about it for a few minutes I think I understand it. Here goes...

If someone buys a ticket for $7 and sells it for $8. Then buys the same ticket for $9 and sells it for $10. How much did he earn?

I borrow $7 from Steven to buy the ticket and sell for $8. So I pay back Steven his $7 and Iím left with $1. Now I want to buy the same ticket for $9 so I need to borrow $8 from Steven to get to $9. Then I sell for $10. I pay back Steven his $8 and Iím left with $2.

Think of it has 2 separate transactions.

Buying at $7 to sell at $8 you got $1 net.

Now, buying at $9 to sell at $10, you net an additional $1.

You are now left with your $2 net.

This is supposed to be a riddle? It seems like a basic math problem.

What's the other possible answer?

Without thinking it through I'm assuming people would guess $3, since he started out investing $7 and ended up with $10. You have to notice that in the middle he's investing another dollar.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Of course it's $2 the math is done as follows $8-$7=$1, $10-$9=$1 that is 2 transactions that he eared $1 on, so $1+$1=$2. The fact that it was the same ticket makes no difference.
