    Smile Find out the no. of days

    This should be a easy one for most of u

    "Last vacation, my cousin came over to stay at my home. We made the most of her stay at my place... and I even earned a few chocolates.

    Everyday, we would play a game of chess. Whoever lost the game owed a chocolate to the other. After the last game we played (that was the day she was to leave), we counted the number of games each of us had won and lost. Wow! I had won more than her. So, she handed me 12 chocolates... though she herself was the winner in 9 games.

    How many days did my cousin spend at my place? "

    Lack of WILL POWER has caused more failure than
    lack of INTELLIGENCE or ABILITY.

    Totally 30 days...

    My cousin won 9 games.

    I got 12 chocolates. So i must won 12+9 = 21 games.

    Thus, the total number of games that we played was 21+9 = 30.
