    What do you mean, "none found the answer"?
    Do you mean no-one has found the answer?

    and we have a winner.
    And your prize is 1$ plus half of the prize.

    @deicider,
    If you want a work well done then you have to do it yourself.
    I can help you with this.The rest will have to do it yourself.

    Thats all good, by my business model of cost=1+(price/2) is way better.
    Try it, thank me later.

    Please provide proof, oh profoundly polysemous poser of problematic puzzles.
    So, what is in Neddy's post that hasn't been posted before?
    Is that a restatement of the original puzzle, a restatement with an answer that was posted in the first reply to the thread?

    Thank you!

    I don't think anyone said Cost = 1 + (Price / 2) because most people had calculated an answer of 2$. For example, in the case of a book with a price of $100, my answer would be:

    Cost = 1 + (Price / 2)
    Cost = 1$ + (100$ / 2)
    Cost = 1$ + 50$
    Cost = 51$

    If you think that's the right answer then you are simply unable to figure out the answer to your own question.

    Yes, and what's more he has no right to decide who is right.
    This question is bigger than one person.
