1 On a dark and stormy night, Able, age 13 and Bonnie, age 15, discussed how great it would be if they  had some money to spend on their weekend trip to the beach.  They consulted Clyde, age 21, knowing that he  was very sneaky and knowing he would easily come up with a plan for money.  The three agreed that they  would go to the home of their neighbor (Nelly hereafter), take a $2000 vase from the living room, and sell it for  $750, leaving them each with $250 dollars.  All agreed that Clyde would get the vase.
