if you think you are smart then read this
there are a man who git two sons
this man used to send his sons to sell eggs
h used to give one of them 30 eggs and tell him to sell 2 for $1.
and told the other to sell 3 for $1.
the earning will be:
the boy who sell 2 for $1 will earn $15.
the boy who sell 3 for $1 will earn $10.
ok now
the total earning for both of them will be $25
one day one of those boys get sick and could not go to sell eggs. his father told the his other son to go sell his eggs and his brother eggs. the price will be 5 eggs for $2. the same price they used to sell( 2 for $1 and 3 for $1 thats mean 5 for $2)
this boy have his 30 eggs and his brother's 30 eggs
so he will earn 24$ for the 60 eggs he will sell
NOW
the qustion is
ther are $1 missing because the last time they earned $25 both and this time just $24. the price is the same price they use to sell and the eggs are the same as before.
so show me your math and tell me the answer

When both boys were selling:
Basket A = 30 eggs; 1$ for two eggs gives 15$
Basket B = 30 eggs; 1$ for Three eggs give 10$
Total = 25$
When one boy selling eggs:
Basket B = 30 eggs; 2$ for Five eggs give 12$ (Here the difference lies)
Basket B = 30 eggs; 2$ for Five eggs give 12$
Total = 24$
