THE MINERS' HOLIDAY.

(Money Puzzles)
Seven coal-miners took a holiday at the seaside during a big strike. Six
of the party spent exactly half a sovereign each, but Bill Harris was
more extravagant. Bill spent three shillings more than the average of
the party. What was the actual amount of Bill's expenditure?


Answer:

Bill Harris must have spent thirteen shillings and sixpence, which would
be three shillings more than the average for the seven men--half a
guinea.
