Dec 13, 2003

That was good...and easy!

excellent teaser!

Thank you. Glad you liked it. It is somewhat easy if you think about it. It is surprising, though, how many people I have stumped with this one.

FYI to those looking. They phrasing of my hint and my answer was changed by the editors. So if it doesn't make sense, I apologize. Thank you in any case for reviewing my teasers.

the teaser is excellent ... the hint gave it away though
Dec 16, 2003

Good one! I thought 45, as in 1 + 4 times 11. Anyway, good teaser!

I tried to send you a personal email, but system said you did not exist. Not sure why, but if Jake can figure it out, I'll get you a note with my original answer.

I caught the tricky wording and got the answer right away.

i went with twelve - no matter how many times you add 1 to 11 you still get 12 - maybe the "four twelves" answer makes slightly more sense in the context of the original phrasing

I thought it was 45. 1 +11 four times. 11 four times= 44,+ 1 = 45

I thought the answer would be 111,111,111,111....

Add 1 and 11, so I just put them one beside the other and "added" them in a tricky way (Kind of like adding "food" to "fish" to make "fishfood"), and then I did it 4 more times.

I did think of four 12's for a moment...but then I was like, 'it can't be.' Oh well, it seems like I was wrong.
