Bottle Deposit Puzzle

Here’s a fun little puzzle, just to get the blog flowing again.

If a bottle with a deposit costs $1.10, and the bottle costs a dollar more than the deposit, how much is the bottle worth?

For the answer, run this ruby program:

puts "#{?i} pennies"

or, just look up the ascii value for ‘i’ and you have the penny amount.
