Too easy no?  Cheesy
It is not easy at all.
I am laughing because I cheated Wink

Odhiambo how did you cheat? I tried but there was no hidden answer.  Grin

Hi martin!
I wish I could, but my conscience simply won't allow it. It is like taking an innocent child by the hand and instructing him on how to rob a bank or engage in some vice or something. I couldn't live with the guilt.  Grin

For this one, I am also in the dark.
I do not know the answer. I was asked, I thought and thought and drew a blank, now I am passing it on  Grin
Here goes:

I wanted to buy a book. The price was 97 kshs.
I did not have the money.
I went to my friend A.
She had only fifty shillings which she gladly lent me.
Next I went to another friend B.
She too lent me 50 kshs.
 
I went to the bookshop and purchased the book at the 97 kshs.
I was given the balance of three shillings.
There was a beggar outside the bookshop so I gave him one shilling.
Now I have two shillings remaining in my pocket.
I gave a shilling back to my friend A to pay back part of her loan.
We agreed I still owed her 49ksh.
I also gave my friend B the remaining shilling.
She accepted the coin and told me to give her the balance of 49ksh
at my convenience.
Suddenly it occurred to me that the maths was not adding up.
49kshs+49ksh= 98ksh
98ksh+ the shilling I gave the beggar makes just 99ksh.
A shilling is missing, how come?  Huh?

oops! Sorry Shin.
I guess I did not think, otherwise I would have written it out in full at least once.
Yes, we have shillings and cents. Cents are almost useless now; they can buy nothing, not even a tiny sweet. Grin

Hmm, I have almost got this, but my brain is not working today, so I can't quite put it together yet. Cheesy

Welcome to the club ! Grin
I was there also in the beginning before I gave up. At one point I calculated another way and ended up with an extra shilling and not a missing one  Grin

If anyone has a riddle to post, go ahead and do so please. We can always come back to "the mystery of the missing coin" once it is no longer a mystery  Grin

What has rivers but no water,
forests but no trees,
and cities but no buildings?

It must have been a very educated guess Shin as it brought you to the right answer.
Congratulations!
You have it, it is a map !
