OK Clever Cloggs. With just one stroke of the pen how do you make this into 950 ,10 10 10 ?

Yea, but I am different and know the fact that 1 + 1 is 3 and not 2 as widely believed and taught

I remember my dad buying one of the first calculators in the mid 1970's. It was mains powered with an LED display and only four functions and cost 30 odd quid at the time so I suppose 25p is an absolute steal.

But.... Can this calculator work out the difference between " stationary " and stationery ?

It seems not... (_;)

1) Its not full HD
2) Its mead of plastic and has a slow data transfer speed
3) Its a poor mans Audi
4) It was 1p cheaper in 1998
5) There is no Sainsburys near me
Cold

So, they weren't moving on the shelf then! Which department?

surely it should be 12.5 + 12.5 not 1+1 as the answer is 25

hot from me but they are free in B & Q

Is the stationary department moving?

It is so cheap it makes you almost want to go out and buy one for no reason.

7 / 3 * 3 =...

If you're going to pull intellect, you should at least write time using correct notation so the problem is stated correctly.

Thread can carry on now, I'm done being retentive for the day

The whole point is to not allude to a different base system! But to be honest I know ten year olds who can solve this!

Got it put a line above the second 1 making it look like 10 T0 10 = 9:50

The answer is actually Window, just ask a primary school pupil and they'll be able to tell you this

I would disagree about the point of the problem. The 'more' maths you know, the harder this problem is, which is why many younger children will solve it faster than teenagers and adults. I'd suggest the point being made is to consider the fundamentals first, then work up towards more advanced methods: you don't use a sledgehammer to crack a nut. As a person's skills (in any discipline) become more advanced, it is easy to lose sight of some of the more simple things.

Erm, hot deal BTW

That's my excuse for not being able to solve it....I know too much

Just worked it out. I was over-thinking.
