Hello Everyone!!! I find this site interesting because me too is a fan of riddles,so for a treat, here's my personal favorite that i made for everyone!!

Peter, John and Mary happened to meet a good merchant!

For merchant's generosity, He give Peter 10 Mangoes, He also give 30 Mangoes to John, and lastly give 50 Mangoes to Mary!

The merchant told them to sell the Mangoes with fair price and no competition.

(no competition means if Peter sell the 1$ per mango, John and Mary would have to sell their Mangoes for 1$ per mango also, got it?)

After all the mangoes had been sold, Peter, John and Mary get the same amount from selling their mangoes

(Let's assume that if Peter get 10$ after his mangoes was sold out,

John also get 10$ after his 30 mangoes was sold out and Mary also got 10$ after her 50 mangoes was sold out)

How Did they sell it?

How did they arrive with same incomes knowing that there is no competition among them?
