Okay see if you can figure this one out without the use of a calculator (just in your head);-)




Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30.
Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?

Cant see how people get it wrong
1000 +40 = 1040
+1000
=2040
+30
=2070
+1000
=3070
+20
=3090
+1000
=4090
+10
=4100
... where exactly is the confusion?

The daughters one never fooled me :)

Ahhh i get the sum one now, its the way you read it. When Im adding it, when I get to the 3090 stage, in my head I say it as "three ninety" for short. So when I add 1000 I say "four ninety" add the 10 I get 5000 :) lol

Fooled me :)

There are 3 light bulbs hanging on individual pendants in a room.

There are 3 light switches on the outside of the room, but you can only use one switch at a time and you cannot see in the room to catch which switch is for which bulb.

There is no possible way of viewing inside the room without stepping in and you cannot have anyone in there shouting which switch is for which bulb.

How do you find out which switch is for which bulb?
