 The Punched-Out Numeral (Posted on 2002-12-27)
Two women and two men entered a cafeteria and each pulled a ticket (There's a illustration, but I can't post it here... It's a rectangle with numbers from 5-100 that go by 5 cents, 10 cents, 15 cents...etc)
Anyway...

1. The four ordered the same food and had he same numeral punched out on their ticket (the retangle is the ticket).

2. Each of the four had exactly four coins.

3. The two women had the same amount of money in coins, though no denomination (value) of coin was held by both women; the two men had the same amount of money in coins, though no denominationof coin was held by both men.

4. Each of the four paid the exact amount inndicated by the numberal that was punched out on his or her ticket.

Which numeral was punched out on each ticket? NOTE: "Coins" may be pennies (1 cent), nickles (5 cents), dimes (10 cents), quarters (25 cents), half dollar (50 cents) or silver dollar.
