One coconut farmer says to the other coconut farmer, "You have 25% fewer coconuts than I do." The other coconut farmer replies, "Really? Well aren't you a prosperous little coconut farmer! You have 20% more coconuts than I do."
Is this possible? Are they both telling the truth? If so, how can it be true?
