I figured the answer to be a fraction less than one. The larger the denominator the larger the value of the inverse.

Maybe I don't get it, but what body part could everyone be thinking of? Maybe I'm just too innocent, perhaps?

great job really enjoyed this teaser (i wasnt thinking about the body part either till i read the hint....gross )
Creamy_SugaAus*
May 21, 2005

By body part I meant that everyone says head, finger, leg, foot, etc. Its not what most of you people think. Its not nasty. Sorry if that part confused u.

Very clever answer. I drew a blank. I couldn't think of an answer.
drussel3*us*
Jun 08, 2005

I was thinking in the same vein, 18 was my answer, which becomes 81 upside down.

I had an unfair advantage on this one my sons teacher gave them this as a challenge in the beginning of the school year. She gave everyone a prize who came up with a correct answer. 6 and 9 are the simpliest.

I didn't understand the bodypart hint either. But speaking of body parts you seemed to have turned a lot of frowns upside down this morning, good job.

Like Marseekay, umbrella was the first thing that came to my mind...and the ONLY thing. Good one!

Great teaser lol for some odd reaason i thought of an object, person oor snowman

Question_Mark...have you read the teaser called Sherlock Holmes?
Spice_2Aus*
Jun 08, 2005

I agree with beenice... how can your head and finger and leg be bigger upside down?
yagaloot**
Jun 08, 2005

Classic. I like my teasers like I seem to like my women. Short and difficult.
neomajic**
Jun 08, 2005

My answer was "A fraction", like 1/2. If you turn it upside down, its 2/1, which is "bigger".
neomajic**
Jun 08, 2005

I think by body-part, someone is referring to the male genitalia. If its upside-down, its got to be bigger, eh?
suzygirl*
Jun 08, 2005

That's great, except there are way too many possibilities for the answer, so I didn't really like this one.

This Teaser is one of the coolest teasers i have read. I have FINALLY gotten 10 teaser right thanks to this one the only thing that i didn't like was that the hint didn't really help out for those that needed it but yea i liked the teaser keep them going!
Trickster1992Aen*
Jun 08, 2005

Shouldn't this be in the "trick" category?

Either way, great teaser! (Has anybody noticed that I might as well be one of the few teenagers in the USA that actually spell correctly?)
KatelinAus*
Jun 08, 2005

Trickster--you spelled "trick" wrong. Just kidding!

Great teaser, Creamy! It'll be on my favorites list!

Sorry, I think this was a joke, not a riddle. Waaaay to many possibilities, and the number 6 did not come to mind when I went over the possibles in my head.
doeheadAus*
Jun 08, 2008

Wrong!!!!! Nine is not bigger than six. It is a larger quanity numerically.Turning it upside does not increase its size,which is the definition of the word bigger.
grobert_14*us
Jun 08, 2008

Good one!
siskiu*

lol...nice
coolguy5678Aza*
Jun 08, 2008

Doehead, if you want to be technical, the problem is that turning a number upside-down doesn't actually mean anything. You can turn our representations of numbers upside down, but not the numbers themselves. There is nothing wrong with saying that 9 is bigger than 6, but there is something wrong with saying that "9" is bigger than "6". The teaser would therefore be written as "A concept is represented in writing, and this representation is turned upside-down. The upside-down representation represents another concept that is bigger than the original concept. What is the original concept?" But that's so trivially technical, and just sounds stupid.

This is a good, but easy, teaser. Nice.
TRILLIONAIRE*us*
Jun 08, 2008

Was this same teaser TotD the same date in 2005? Look at all the comments.
2ndhandroseca*
Jun 08, 2008

I cant' believe this. I agree with Doehead. I think what you mean
is 9 cannot be physically "bigger"
than 6, but it can be numerically
GREATER THAN 6. Is that it.
Phew , hard to type

Funny teaser tho & I won't go where I was thinking either.
avonmaAus*
Jun 08, 2008

I didn't figure it out, but it was a good teaser. Thankt!
FatHeadAus*
Jun 09, 2008

I tried i/!, but that didn't work, so I had to try something else...and hit upon it quickly.

That hint made no sense, though.
doeheadAus*
Jun 08, 2011

We're back to that 6 again. If you believe that it is grammatically correct, than the same concept would apply to the number 2. I still say it is wrong!!!
dsjtus*
Jun 08, 2011

I got 6.


I agree with the fractions response also.


2 works also also. Depending how you form the number 2 it will become the number 5.


A puffer fish also works.

Way to many possible answers if we follow the author's train of thought.
kosta77*
Jun 08, 2014

I don't like this riddle. According to this logic, it could be a lot of numbers, 69, 609, 689, 6009, 6889, with n number of 8s or 0s in between a 6 and a 9. Personally, I think this is a bad riddle.
