Accountant question

Recommended Posts

This question was used during a test for accountant job.


You have 50 dollars

You buy cloths with 20 dollars. Your left with 30 dollars.

You buy candy with 15 dollars. Your left with 15 dollars.

You buy drinks with 9 dollars. Your left with 6 dollars.

You buy cupcake with 6 dollars. Your left with 0 dollars.


20 + 15 + 9 + 6 = 50

30 + 15 + 6 + 0 = 51


Why did I get 51?

You buy a cupcake for $6. and have 0 left.
