Hmmm, not liking number 6 so much

there aren't any 1's in Roman Numerals - they're i's

but enjoyed the rest!

You simply have to make a bet that you are certain to win with the 19th person you come across. The amount of the bet is a \$20 bill.

Therefore, you have taken 1 from 19 and got 20 without having to give it back.

@Southpaw_Pete: Yes, exactly. I=1. So take away 1 (the I) from XIX, and you are left with XX, or twenty

And sorry, should have used a spoiler for my answers. My bad!

The object is to get to the number 20 without having to put the 1 back in.

Therefore:

19 - 1 = 18

18 + 2 = 20

2 Â¬= 1

I also agree with sana88's solutions

You ask 19 people for one dollar each, plus one you already have = 20

Hence, you took one from nineteen and got 20

Spoiler for # 1:

All of the months.
