A servant lived and worked hard for his master magician for long years. The magician, appreciating everything he had done for so long, called in the servant and told him we would grant one wish (and one wish only... none of this wishing for more wishes!). The servant was given one day to think on what he would like to wish for.
The servant headed home and talked to his wife about what he should wish for. His wife immediately asked him to wish for a child, as they still remained childless. Happy with this thought, he went to visit with his parents. His mother, upon hearing about his wish, asked her son to wish for her sight to be returned, as she had gone blind. On the way out the door, his told him to wish for riches with which he could care for all three them.
Tired and now quite upset since he didn't know what to choose, the servant headed home and slept restlessly. Upon waking, he knew what he had to wish for.
He immediately went to his master and made one wish, a wish that would make all three (mother, father and wife) happy. What was that wish?
I'm posting one puzzle, riddle, math, or statistical problem a day. Try to answer each one and post your answers in the comments section. I'll post the answer the next day. Even if you have the same answer as someone else, feel free to put up your answer, too!
