The Bookstore

Aniceto is addicted to riddle books and puzzle games. Every day he passes by the bookstore in his neighborhood and spends hours gazing at the covers. Today he has been paid weekly and he has not been able to resist the temptation to buy some books. Half of the pay money has been spent and on leaving he has realized that he had as many cents as euros he had when entering but half of the cents he had.

Solution

Aniceto earns € 99.98 a week and he spent half € 49.99 in books, so when he left he had as many cents as euros he had when he entered and half of euros he had cents.
