Can You Solve The Shoe Store Logic Puzzle?


Here’s a logic puzzle for you math lovers out there.

A man buys a $10 pair of shoes with a $20 bill. The store owner doesn’t have any change, so he goes next door to the barber to get change from him. The store owner returns to his store and gives the man $10 change and his new pair of shoes. The barber later tells the store owner that the $20 he made change for was counterfeit. To make up for it, the store owner gives the barber a real $20 bill. The pair of shoes cost the store owner $5. How much did the store owner lose after the whole affair?
