Harper and Rose Lee were debating the major purchase of some candy. They found out, by looking at the prices, that they could get three tiny bags of jellybeans and two tiny bags of chocolate chips for 24¢, which was under their limit of a quarter. They could also get four tiny bags of chocolates and two tiny bags of jellybeans for the same 24¢. How much did each tiny bag of chocolates cost?
This puzzle isn't too hard if you have time and brain power to think about it. I am personally running out of brain power as it is 11:30 pm and I have been busy all day.
I think my talk for Sacrament Meeting is about ready. I just need to brush it up and trim around the edges. I have spent more time preparing this talk than any other talk I have ever given.
Maybe that's not because I actually focused on it, but because I was interrupted about four thousand, three hundred times while I was working on it.
Okay, that's an exaggeration. It was only about half that.
I'll give the answer to the puzzle in a day or two, or after I give up on anyone figuring it out.
