My dear readers,
I have a boggling brain-teaser for you.
Joe is sick and he has to take his medication. He has 2 kinds of medicine: A and B, each in a separate container.
However, the “A” and “B” pills look exactly the same.
One day, Joe pours 1 “A” pill from the “A” bottle in his hand. When he tries to pour 1 “B” pill, 2 “B” pills accidentally fall in his palm. Both “A” and “B” pills look the same, so he cannot tell which of the 3 pills he’s holding is “A” and which are “B”.
The pills are super expensive so Joe is not allowed to waste any. Not now, not ever. So he cannot throw these 3 away and start over or set them aside and decide what to do later.
It is now 9am. He must decide what to do before the clock strikes 10am.
What does he do?
