## Math Competition

Math brain teasers require computations to solve.

 Puzzle ID: #29718 Fun: (2.76) Difficulty: (2.3) Category: Math Submitted By: bigSWAFF_69_ Corrected By: pating

Felipe's school is hosting a math competition against other schools in the same district. Each school can only allow 10 students to compete. Felipe and his classmates are taking tests to determine the 10 best math students to send. Felipe did well, but tied with John Roy for the last spot. His teacher decided to set-up a one-problem challenge, whoever got it right the fastest would win.

Knowing that "H" is equal to 10, and T is half of M, how could MATH be 42, TEAM be 40, and MEET be 37?

 mercenary007 Apr 12, 2006 that was nice and fun and easy... got it right off the bat jax_the_ax Apr 13, 2006 na craptastic cb123 Apr 17, 2006 that was a cool teeaser i liked it i got it right away tonjawithaj May 01, 2006 That was so much fun! More please! RRAMMOHAN May 29, 2006 Very simple, but fun! Sir_CombusTable Jul 10, 2006 If M,A,T, and H were variables, then MATH would equal M*A*T*H, not M+A+T+H. Kiroho Sep 28, 2006 I have to agree. Any math teacher presenting the problem like that should be fired. stil Dec 24, 2006 If you're going to gripe that you inferred multiplication, you might as well complain that it isn't positional, i.e., MATH means 1000 * M + 100 * A + 10 * T + H. It should have been shown in the answer that MAT = 32, TEAM - MAT = E = 8, TEEM - EE = TM = TTT = 21. (user deleted) Mar 07, 2007 OK someone tell me if i am wrong but in the ? it sais that TEAM=40 but when it gives you the answer it sais TEAM=34 emily103 May 28, 2007 I agree, it should be multiplication. And TEAM is given as 40 in the body but 34 in the answer. edwardfalana May 19, 2014 QUITE INTERESTING
