darthforman: If you don't like math, what are you doing in this section? Cute teaser, didn't occur to me right away.

This should almost be in the trick catagory. It was simple enough, but you got me. Very nice!

no trick...you just had to think it through.....

i got it....mainly because my mind went immediately to the point...x-x....

good one!

Wow! I was trying to find a pattern, scribbling stuff out a couple times, adding like terms.... woops!

Very cool, and I agree with paul's comment, this would be equally at home in the tricks section.

that was smart, to make it a no thinking required problem where most people will think

Very creative and good. I agree that because only x-x is the equation it would make a better trick, but I got it and liked it

i was actually about to times everything out. i'm glad i stopped at c and looked at the answer. this is a really good teaser

If it were me I'd have placed it in trick!

But very tricky

Ooh, that was a good one! I didn't get it, but the answer made me slap myself in the forehead (which looked really dumb to the people walking by my desk!)

This was a bonus question on a pre-calc test I took in high school. I got it right back then. I started to multiply it out, but then I thought "wait, what happens when you get to x-x?" Then I got it.

This would have been way too easy had it been in the trick category. People would be looking for the trick. In the math category people give up after the first few letters. I really liked it.
