A MONKEY = Slang for $500 = 5 × 100

I am curious as to what this one was derived from. Coincidentally, 500 IDR (currency in my country) money once also used the picture of a primate, though this one was an orangutan.

2^^^2 = 4

What the heck are these???

]]>I was thinking something like this:

If one shape fits perfectly inside the other one, then it is easy. Same also if one of the two dimensions are exactly the same (for example if the square is AxA and the rectangle BxC and A=B or A=C, then we compare the other sides only.

If, however, say, A>B and A<C then I guess we put one rug onto the other so that they have one common vertex (say, the lower left vertex) and then what?]]>

Here are twelve of them:

A similar program in BASIC:

```
x=1
y=2
d=1
ppd=0
WHILE d<13
ppd=ppd+x
x=x+y
y=y+1
d=d+1
WEND
PRINT ppd
```

And...welcome to the forum!

]]>Further - you have no way of knowing how many iterations the average person will make. But you could assume that the probability of x iterations decreases as x increases.

So the 1st iteration is that everyone would pick 300 as it is bigger.

The 2nd iteration is that 200 is a better bet if 6 or more people pick 300.

The 3rd iteration is that 300 is a better bet if 5 people get to iteration 2.

Etc etc.

The extra size of the kitty for voting 300 makes it the better choice in a large enough sample I think
