Ok, I don't want this merging with other riddle topics as it's going to serve a purpose slightly different to the rest. It's going to be just the one riddle, see if you can figure it.

There are two men who go into a cafe. One orders a coffee, the other orders nothing. Five minutes later person one who ordered the coffee walks out with his change from a £50 note. 10 minutes later, person two walks out with the exact same change.

How did person two also walk out with the exact same change?

Just to make clear, person two had no money. Person one only had a £50 note.

I'd appreacite it if people could just post possible answers, and not whether they've heard/read/seen this riddle.


Someone wanted a clue. I think with the types of answers we're getting, a clue is needed.

The answer is a very logical one. If the answer is played out in real life, it will actually happen. Now think, what are the odds that your answer can actually happen? Finding the exact same amount on the floor? Sticking up the cafe? Dropping the change?

I'll leave you guys to it.

Ok, so this is going to be very difficult. But who ever gets it, I shall hand a tenner over to them. No joke, a tenner to the one who gets it right.

hmmm....between the 5 minutes that it took the second person to leave the first person came back...gave the second person the money and then he left too.

either that or he begged for a whole lotta money

maybe he raided the till and stole the same amount coz he felt poor ;)

Anyway, rather than myself posting wrong each time, I'll post when the right answer is posted.

Person 2 is the cashier/guy at the till - he didn't buy anything.
Person 1 did buy something with a 50 pound note.

The product cost £25 so each person would have the exact amount as each other.

Simple business transaction.

ummm person 1 bumps into person 2 in the cafe. Person two asks person 1 to lend him some money. Person 1 buys coffee and splits the change between the two of them.

e.g.the coffee cost £1.00 and person one was left with £49

He gave the other man £24.50 and was left with the same amount himself.. so they both left with the same change :?

that must be right lol :happy:

As person 1 was getting there money they got more from the guy at the till, so he gave him 50 quid plus his change. Person 1 gave person 2 the 50 quid and left and thus person 2 ordered and paid. Hmm….tricky indeed.

Person 2 is waiter in the café ..person 1 gave order for the coffee that would cost him 30 pound for example ……. p1 get back 20 pound change ….p1 gave 10 pound to the p2 in tip and another 10 pound he keep for himself..:?

The answer does include a waiter, but not as mentioned in the above post. Now there's another clue.

The tenner is still in my desk, so it's still on.

Maybe Person 2's a regular in the shop and was owed money by the waiter or something.
Person 1 orders coffee, gets change, and gives btip of say £25 leaving himself with £20, and Person 2 who is owed the money from the waiter gets the moeny

Or Person 2 is the waiter, and Person 1 gives him a tip of half what he had because they are friends or something, or he owes him himself

Or the only other answer i can think of is Person 1 buys more than just a coffee, he buys other food as well, and ends up with £2 change in the end, tips the waiter £1 and so they end up with £1 each

The 2 guys get into a fight. The first beats up the second guy until he knocks him out. The second guy is on the floor bleeding from the mouth. The first guy then takes his 50 dollar bill, asks for change then takes a 5 dollar bill along with a 20, throws them on the guys face and says "wipe yourself, you're bleeding". The tender too scared to ask for money, lets the man walk out without paying. Now they both have $25 each. ;)
Woho I solved it.

1. The first person orders coffee worth lets say 4 quid. He sees his creditor person 2. So Person 1 pays person 2, twenty three pounds and goes out with the same amount. (Why he gave £23, I dont know). Ten minutes letter p2 comes out.

2. P1 gets change and gives half to the beggar P2

or

3.P1 come sout with £46 as change and then gives P1 the same amount through a window.

Alright assuming that p1 and p2 are friends as p2 had no money so p1 ordered 2 cups of coffee one for his friend (p2) and one for himself ......... and ends up with 4 pounds change in the end. And those 4 pounds he gave to the waiter in tips…………..

So when they got out of the café neither of them had money……….since p1 spent whole £50 note and p2 hadn’t have money at the first place……………

Does it make sense :rollseyes:

Hmm its a good answer but 2 cups of coffee give more than £4.00 change from a £50 note, and Brother Z says its realistic

But yeah thats the most realsitic answer to me. P2 comes in later than P1, they are mates, P1 orders 2 cups of tea, they know the waiter since susually peopel go to coffee shops regularly, they probably owe him money, so all the change goes to the waiter, so they both leave with nothing.

I challenge Z to prove from his clues how i can be wrong, my answer fits and it is realsitic. It might not be the answer he had in mind but theres so many possible answers with such an ambigious question ;) Lol hint hint i want more clues! ;D

No, because if you have no money on you, then it isn't possible to have any change. No money = empty pockets = no change. Both person 1 and 2 walked out with change.

Ofcourse it does, we've already said that. But can you figure out how person 1 and 2 both get the same amount of change from the waiter though?

Not correct, sorry. Remember one of the hints I gave was that the solution was very realistic and would work 100% each and every time.

Riddle
There are two men who go into a cafe. One orders a coffee, the other orders nothing. Five minutes later person one who ordered the coffee walks out with his change from a £50 note. 10 minutes later, person two walks out with the exact same change.

How did person two also walk out with the exact same change?

Notes
Just to make clear, person two had no money. Person one only had a £50 note. (When they walked in.)

The answer is a very logical one. If the answer is played out in real life, it will actually happen. Now think, what are the odds that your answer can actually happen? Finding the exact same amount on the floor? Sticking up the cafe? Dropping the change?

Ok, one last hint. Person 2 sat at the same table as person 1.

I wouldn't normally do this, but to add to the last hint I gave, it does include the waiter giving the change.

...your possible answer was to be played in real life, it'll work each time 100%. What are the chances that everyone has a twin? Very slim.

No money = empty pockets = no change. Both person 1 and 2 walked out with change.

first man orders coffee, second man enters and joins him at same table. When the waiter brings the bill, the first man gives him a £50 note. waiter comes back with half the change, saying he will have to get more change. The first man takes half the change and tells the waiter to give the rest of the change to person 2 who he knows, and then leaves as he is in a hurry. The waiter then comes back with the rest of the same amount of change and gives it to person two, who then leaves with the same amount as did person one. :?

this is my last guess :rollseyes

Person 2 is an identical twin of Person 1. Person 1 gets his change and leaves. Person 2 says: hey, i didn't get my change. The waiter thinks person 2 is person 1 (cus he's a twin) and so gives him the change.

As much as I'd like to give the answer and keep the tenner for myself, I won't. But anyway, I'll drop another clue.

The banknote which person 1 paid the waiter with plays a huge part in the possible answer.

Once again, here's another rundown of the whole topic.

ok my final guess i think.....

Person 1(who had the money) bought person 2 the coffee. person 1 gives person 2 the £50 to pay for the coffee and the waiter gives the change to person 2. Person 2 lies to person 1 about how much the change was and only gives him half...thus when he walks outta the shop they both have the same amount....

lol, thought iwas onto something but the more i wrote the more it sounded wrong.

oh well....i tried...

10p for my efforts??:giggling: ....hmmmmm.....spaceraiders;)

That's really not a bad answer there, but if you go through it again, you can see the flaws.

If you're serious, I can snail mail over a picked flavoured Space Raider's packet if you want. Better yet, try again for the tenner.

Come on, again that doesn't really have anything to do with the actual answer.

If I must, for the sake of it, the coffee cost £1.50. The coffee was paid for with a £50, or even a £20 note, whichever. Like I said, it doesn't really matter.

ok I got it :giggling: :giggling:

Guy 1 gets change £48.5 + y
he gets up after 5 mins

Guy 2 gets change x
he gets up after 10 mins

now since guy 1 and 2 both have same amount, then
x= £48.5 + y

who can have paid the x and y and why?

The waiter of course!!!:happy: :okay:

you see guy 1 and 2 are lawyers, or atleast guy 2 is a lawyer
as he waited for 10 mins he is given that much money for consulatation charges

preety simple eh?? :) :)

Do you mean Guy 2, or do u eman guy 1 on both occasions

Either way this is a riddle, and there is nothing special about your answer in that regard, and its meant to be realistic enough to happen everyday, and your solution seems very unlikely

I dunno, allah hu aalim, it may be right, but z has led us to believe its a super hard riddle, if your answer is right, the riddles been a waste of time

You're forgetting about the banknote. The one which was used to pay for the only coffee bought. It's to do with the note. This is the biggest clue ever. If you don't get it now, God help you.

Someone has to have this tenner. It wouldn't feel right for me at all to take it back.

Oh, and whoever said a class mate of theirs was talking about the same riddle, most likely they're lying. Why bother.

Ok after person 1 buys the coffee he gets his change (from a banknote). person 2 knows him and is owed money by person 1. Half of that change given to person 1 from purchasing the coffee is given to person 2 to repay the debt.

Well Z said that the banknote used plays an important part.
Since we are talking about change, do NOT consider the whole 50 quid.
Consider only part of it

You're both right and wrong Muslim Soldier. The banknote is the whole carrier of this riddle. Figure out what role it plays, and the rest will all fall into place. The timings, the waiter, and the change. The banknote connects them all.

I still have the tenner here, although I'm getting very tempted to spend it now.
