I had 2 dollars riddle answer

  • The answer to the “I had 2 dollars” riddle is $7.

Essentially, the key to determining the correct answer is acknowledging the word “did”. It’s asking how much money they had, rather than have.

So, you’re tasked with working out how much they had before borrowing money from family.

By throwing in a bunch of different figures, it aims to throw audiences off into thinking they must add them all together.

There you have it! Be sure to test your family and friends to see if they can get it.
