Five men checked into a hotel with a bag of peanuts and a monkey. They planned on dividing the peanuts evenly the following morning. However, during the night one of the man got up, divided the peanuts into five equal parts, took his fifth and had one leftover peanut which he gave to the monkey. He put other shares of peanuts back into the bag and returned to bed. A little later, a second man (who did not know that the first man had been up) divided the peanuts in five equal parts and took his fifth. He also had one peanut leftover, which he gave to the monkey and he put rest of the peanuts back in the bag. Likewise, during the night the third, fourth and fifth men got up, divided the peanuts and each one had a peanut left over for the monkey.

Four players played 4 games. The winner of the first game collected Re. 1 from each of the others, winner of the 2nd game collected Rs. 2 from each of the others, winner of the 3^{rd} game collected Rs.3 from each of the others and winner of the 4^{th} game collected Rs. 4 from each of the others. If the winners were different in each game and the final amount with each was Rs 20, then
Q. what was the highest amount held by any player before the first game?
Since the money loss Increases In every round and at the end of 4 rounds ell have Rs. 20, the player who had the highest amount must have won game 1 and then lost all the 3.
In the last 3 rounds, he has lost = Rs. (2 + 3 + 4) = Rs. 9
In the 1st round, he has collected = Rs. (1 + 1 + 1) = Rs. 3
Thus, his total loss = Rs. (9  3) = Rs. 6. So, he must have had Rs.26 before round 1.
