I just bought a candy bar for $1.00, how much it that candy bar worth at the time of sale?
1.00 plus tax.
I said $1.00 as well, but here is a hint: That is the only incorrect answer.
Whatever someone is willing to pay for it.
The trick is it depends on which side of the transaction you are on. If both parties viewed the candy bar as being valued at $1 then no transaction would take place. The buyer viewed the candy bar as being worth more than $1 and the seller viewed the candy bar as being less than $1. So really any answer other than $1 is correct.
