The Broken Cash Register (Posted on 2013-08-30) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I bought 4 items at a store having a broken cash register. The clerk used a calculator to add them up, but hit the multiplication key instead of the addition key and told me the result was $7.02. When I pointed out the error, he added them up and reported the same final bill! Is this possible, or was another error made?
