 cathalmccabe Apr 18, 2002 Yes but you can do the same subtraction sum over and over again until you die chamber44 Apr 25, 2002 I agree. You can subtract 6 from 36 as many times as you want until the day you die. Maybe that shoule be the answer instead. O_wise_one May 22, 2002 I also agree, you could use up 18,562 pieces of paper, and still keep subtracting 6 from 36. Then using roman numerals....... (user deleted) May 31, 2002 That is so simple princess_d May 31, 2002 Good try watupchicks May 31, 2002 O_wise_one why cant it be 18,563?.....lmao....nice try but it is easy emmyluzam Jun 01, 2002 Well yes, but you are forgetting this is a trick brainteaser, not a math one tiffiney79 Jun 08, 2002 how about this answer: you can only subtract 6 from 36 once. after that, you have 3 eterpay Aug 07, 2002 That wouldn't be subtracting. teasersolver May 01, 2005 Great Teaser but i figured it out easily after the first time it is obvious that you are taking 6 from 30,24,18,12,6,... ElectricYou Oct 25, 2005 name are tiny, but the person who said "then you'd have 3" that was the answer I had. I think we're still right EnderofGames Dec 21, 2005 Oh! I said infinit time, but you'd always get 30. Battery Nov 27, 2006 what if you had three 36s? aball911 Mar 15, 2008 this is a common joke/teaser/whatever you want to call it. pretty easy tho sorry MetallicaLover1 Jan 14, 2010 I dont get it.
