The latest riddle to make its rounds online is the “I had 370 dollars” riddle, which has perplexed people far and wide. If you have been struggling with this riddle, never fear, we have the answer down below!

### I had 370 dollars riddle

The I had \$370 riddle is:

I had \$370.00. My Mom gave \$150.00. My Dad gave \$150.00. My Aunt and Uncle gave me \$100.00, I had \$30.00. How much did I have?

The answer to the riddle is: \$400

To understand the answer to the riddle, you have to re read the wording of the question very carefully.

I had \$370.00. My Mom gave \$150.00. My Dad gave \$150.00. My Aunt and Uncle gave me \$100.00, I had \$30.00. How much did I have?

Therefore, although your mom, dad, aunt, and uncle all gave you money, the riddle only explicitly states that you have \$370 and another \$30.

The riddle wants to know how much you did have- which is \$370 plus \$30. So, the answer is \$400.

### Another money riddle to try

Here is another very similar riddle to try your hand at:

Where are my smart friends? I had \$3.00. My mom gave me \$10.00. My dad gave me \$30.00. My aunt and uncle gave me \$100.00. I had another \$5.00. How much did I have?

The answer is \$8. The question is asking how much money you have, not how much money you were given by other people.

Despite being given \$140 by your family members, the question wants to know how much money you originally had. The question says “I had \$3.00” and “I had another \$5” therefore if you add the two together you get \$8.
