If someone says to you, “I’ll bet you $1 that if you give me$2, I will give you $3 in return”, would this be a good bet for you to accept? Math Riddle: If someone says to you, “I’ll bet you$1 that if you give me $2, I will give you$3 in return”, would this be a good bet for you to accept?

Answer: No. This is a situation where you lose even if you win.

Assuming the other person is being wise, they would take your $2 and say, “I lose”, and give you$1 in return.

You win the bet, but you’re out \$1.
