If something costs ten dollars plus half the price, how much does the item cost?

Since someone got the answer, I'll explain it.

The algebraic equation of this problem is 10 + .5x = x, x being the price.
Now let's plug in 15, shall we?

10 + 7.50 = 17.50
Does 17.50 = 15?

If you solve for x, you get 20. Plug 20 back into the problem and you get
10 + .5(20)
= 10 + 10 = 20

20 = 20

The mistake people made was that they thought \$10 was the price of the game. The price is \$10 + x/2, NOT \$10.

Congratulations, Heartview. You got a rep; though, I really wanna derep you for ruining my fun.
