Math questions where the ethical or philosophical concern (or indifference) of the problem solver has a bearing on the answers.
Two ethical math questions are:

1) There are two hungry lions in a cage. In the morning, the zookeeper opens the cage door and throws in two lambs. How many animals remain in the cage when he returns the next day?
2) Which salesman in this company should be fired? Bob who is honest but brings in only $60 profit, or Ryan who pockets in $20, but brings in $100 profit.
