Double of half is one.

Half of half is quarter.

Fine two beatings of half to death so a beating equal to 75% to death if done one right after the other.

Write that in a form of a mathematical equation.

50+(50*50/100)=75

It's 50*2.

Let me explain the math to you. You start out with 100% health and get beaten to half that, thus you are now at 50% if you now get another beating that yet again takes half of that off, you start at 50% and end at 25% so the number is not two in the equation. Now if you take the two beating who took out a total of 50% and 25% of your health then you get to the number 75%

Your math is not mathing….. double 1/2 (twin brother gets double of wishing brothers wish) is 1

So let me clear it for you. I can clear it using maths as well but for the starters let me try it using words only.

Double of half is full. So if I'm getting beaten half to death, my twin would get beaten full to death!

I hope you understand now. If you still don't, let me use maths.

Consider health of both twins(T1 &T2) to be exact same at 100.

Let us assume that it takes 50 punches to get T1's health down to 50. (Considering 100 as full health and 0 as death, 50 has to be half to death)

Now, since T2 get twice of T1, T2 would recieve 100 punches which will bring his health to 0 and hence, death!

You are probably thinking about two half to death beatings. But that's not the essence of the joke.

I know but that is what I was arguing as my sentence states if one beating is right after the other indicating I was talking about two beating and not one full one

He doesn't say 'give me one beating of half to death'. If he had said that then his brother would have received double i.e. two beatings of half to death.

Since, he said 'beat me half to death'. Hence, its double would be full to death.

P.S.: we both must be fun at parties!!
