Fridays Killer Questions 7city Learning:
Question) You have 100 kg of berries. 99% of the weight of berries is water. Time passes and some amount of water evaporates, so our berries are now 98% water. What is the weight of berries now?
Answer) The unexpected, yet correct, answer is 50 kg. It seems like a tiny amount of water has evaporated so how can the weight have changed that much? There is clearly 1 kg of solid matter in the berries. If that makes up two percent then the total weight must be 50 kg.
