Are U Brilliant? Then Solve This

A man has three beautiful daughters and everybody in town loved to catch a glympse at them, by the time they grew up to like age 18, the man decided to make three building in a compound for the three ladies so that people can come to see them one by one, he then set a rule for anybody that comes to see the ladies. this is the rule:

if you want to enter into any of the ladies building you must pay 50 kobo at the entrance, whatever amount of money you have on you will be doubled by the lady visited, you pay 50 kobo at exit then proceed to the next lady while the rule is repeated.

this is the question:

A man went to see the three ladies, by the time he came out of the last lady's building he had 0 kobo on him,

how much was on him before he entered the first lady's building.

you may give your answers with hypothesis.

Answer = [b]N[/b]131.25k. . . One hundred and thirty one naira, twenty five kobo.

I calculated based on the assumption that the man had his money doubled after paying entrance fee and before paying exit fees, if my answer isn’t correct then u had better come give us the working parameters(assumption).

Note: My lappy doesn't have naira sign, hence the bolded N in caps for Naira.

0 kobo

I think it's a riddle rather than a math question. the man does not need money, hopefully, before he enters the first lady's (the president's wife) building. So the "fisrt lady" = president's wife

Sholasong is this correct?

omo the answer can only be 131.25 kobo. Unless if the exit of one building is the entrance of the other. In that case the answer shld be 93.75 kobo

I NO GO CARRY LAST

The guy started with 131.25kobo  at the first entrance he paid 50k and 81.25 was left with him which was doubled to 162.5k then he paid 50 at exit and was left with 112.5kobo[\b]

At the second building he paid 50k when entering and was left with 62.5kobo which was double to be 125k and at exit he paid 50 and was left with [b]75kobo

At entering the third building he paid 50kobo and was left with 25k which was doubled to be 50 and at the exit he paid 50k that's why he came out with  0kobo  or nothing.

am i right?

The man had 75k on him.

On visiting the first lady, he paid 50 kobo and was left with 25k which was doubled.

He went to the second lady's house and paid 50k but nothing was download since he had no money.

On reaching the third lady's house, he could not see her because he doesn't have any money, so he left without seeing her.
