A bat and ball cost $1.10.

The bat costs one dollar more than the ball.

How much does the ball cost?

Got it? 10 cents, right? Wrong. The correct answer is actually 5 cents.

“Huh?” you may be wondering. Here's the explanation from Behavioral economist Daniel Kahneman and the book, \“Thinking, Fast And Slow“:

A number came to your mind. The number, of course, is 10: 10¢. The distinctive mark of this easy puzzle is that it evokes an answer that is intuitive, appealing, and wrong. Do the math and you will see If the ball costs 10 ¢, then the total cost will be $1.20 (10¢ for the ball and $1.10 for the bat), not $1.10. The correct answer is 5¢. It is safe to assume that the intuitive answer also came to the mind of those who ended up with the correct number—they somehow managed to resist the intuition.

Still confused? Think about it this way: the problem doesn't say that the bat costs exactly $1…just that it costs an additional $1. So if the ball costs 10 cents, you'd be paying $1.10 for the bat alone. Instead, the ball has to cost five cents so that you're only paying $1.05 for the bat.
