Sharpen your logical skills with this riddle.
Cigars cannot be entirely smoked so a miser merchant collects cigar butts from a bar on his way home.
He can make one cigar out of every 5 butts that he finds.
Today, he has collected 125 cigar butts.
How many cigars will he be able to smoke?
If you get the correct answer, share it with your friends on WhatsApp, Facebook and other social networking sites.
From the 125 butts, he found he can make: 125/5 = 25 cigars
Once he has smoked these 25 cigars, he can make: 25/5 = 5 cigars
Once he has smoked these 5 cigars, he can make 1 more cigar.
So the total number of cigars he can smoke is: 25 + 5 + 1 = 31
