It takes ten minutes to fry a steak (five minutes for each side). You are frying the steaks in a pan that can accommodate only two steaks at one time. What is the least amount of time by which you can fry all the three steaks you have?
After frying for five minutes, you can take out one steak and put the third one inside while turning the other one inside. After five more minutes, one steak is fried from both sides and you can take it out. Now put in the steak that we removed and turn the other one inside. After five more minutes, they both will also be fried from both sides.

Jasmine, Thibault, and Noah were having a night out and decided to order a pizza for $10. It turned out that Jasmine and Thibault were hungrier than Noah. They both ate 6 slices a piece, and Noah got to eat just 2 slices.
Now they want to do a fair split of money. The problem is that none of them have coins with them. Thus, they want to round off the cost to nearest dollar.
Since Jasmine and Thibault ate equal amount, they should pay the same amount. But since that's not possible, they can decide with 'rock, paper, scissor' or an equivalent measure to determine who will pay the extra dollar. Now, let's assume tha Jasmine pays $1 extra after losing
Jasmine will pay $5, Thibault will pay $4 and Noah will pay $2.
If the pizza's cost was $11, we can simply keep the same offset and divide. Jasmine is paying 6% more, Thibault is paying 15% more and Noah is paying 27% more.
Keeping the offset same both Jasmine and Thibault will pay $5 each and Noah will pay $1.
