J.P. Morgan Financial Analyst Interview Question

I interviewed in Newark, DE and was asked:
"You have a bat and a ball. The bat is 1 dollar more than the ball and they both add up to 1.50. How much are each?"

Why not 1.50 and 0.00 if question does not place any restrictions on values for bat and ball.

Why not $1.00 for bat and $.50 for the ball

1.25 for the bat and .25 for the ball... You could not value the bat at 1.50 or 1.00, because they are not equal to 1 dollar more than the ball.
