Seems like a waste of time. If I lose the bet it means you didn't give me back three dollars so you keep the $2 I gave you, and have to give $1 because you lost the bet, leaving you ahead by $1, If you give me back $3, two of them were mine to start with and then I have to give you the $1 for my losing the bet so no body is ahead. The point is, at best, I break even. So, I wouldn't make the bet.
Thanks for best answer. I do that here because I'm not allowed to write on your white board or message you because of your age. Keep your brain active so that when you get to be my age (82) you'll be able to answer someone elses brain twister.
No, it takes time, not a lot, but it does. Time is money, so it costs me money
Yest, at about 200 bucks an hour, my fee, this costs me more tthan buck.
It is the time, it takes to hand over the money, and check it. I know I get the buck back, but not the time. Use this to your advantage.
yes because at the end I get all my money back
The answer is the extra dollar I made is you paying the bet.
You bet me 1 dollar that if I give you two dollars you will give me back 3.
I gave you two and you paid me the 1 dollar so I now have 3 dollars.
