Hello, if anyone wants to try this brain teaser you can so here it goes. Mr.Reece took his girlfriend Cathy to Austrailia for Valentines Day. There was a huge wishing fountain where people would make a wish and throw in a dollar. Well since Mr.Reece wanted to be romantic and give Cathy the best Valentines Day ever, he ended up a little short on cash. Mr.Reece snuck out of the very fancy hotel at 1:00 am (normal time) and got back at 15:00 hours (military time). During this time Mr.Reece jacked(stole) 23 dollars per minute for 1 hour and 33 minutes from the wishing fountain. (Mr.Reece you thief) No one ever caught him and Mr.Reece suceeded in his plan, to give Cathy the Best Valentines Day ever, and the happy couple lived Hapily Ever After!!!

How long was Mr.Reece out of the Hotel stealing money from the Wishing Fountain?
How much money did Mr.Reece steal?

Overall a great math problem Janna. While extremely creative and funny, you need to make sure that you don't offend anyone when you include their names in a post such as this. I must admit though I spent a good couple of minutes laughing my head off after reading you question.

Sounds like Mr Reece is a rich man after spending so much time in the fountain.
