Fun Maths Riddle: How Much Money Did The Man Have on The First Day

Here’s a money riddle which will help you track money.

One kind person had some money with him.

He gave one rupee to beggar and half of the remaining money was spent by him.

Same thing happened on the second day; he gave one rupee to beggar from remaining money of first day and spent half of the remaining money.

This continued on the six day after which he was left with no money.

Can you find out how much money he had on the first day?


He was left with 0 rupee on sixth day, this means he had only 1 rupee on sixth day.

so he had 1 x 2 + 1 = 3 on 5th day

on 4th day start 3 x 2 +1 = 7

on 3rd day start 7 x 2 + 1 = 15

on 2nd day start 15 x 2 + 1 = 31

on first day start 31 x 2 + 1 = 63

Answer = 63
