How about when 1x + 1x + 1x = 1y, where x=1 and y=3????

These variants could be anything in which something is three times larger than the other.

nice, though it may be more of math teaser than a trick.

That was a good one. I am going to pose it to my students and see if anyone figures it out.

That was clever, I didn't think of labels, I was trying to figure out if it was one of those tricks where you mess around with how toothpicks make shapes. Way off!

I thought, 1 and 1 and 1 only equals 1. Yet another prime example of nerfhead logic!

Ah! I did not get this. Great job! (I thought the answer was "never!")

bookworm, I also thought the answer was never (after all, it is a trick teaser). good, though, nonetheless!

...or 1 teaspoon + 1 tespoon + 1 teaspoon = 1 tablespoon. Or 1 pig + 1 pig + 1 pig = 1 story of the 3 little pigs.

Or one side + one side + one side equals ONE TRIANGLE.

im prolly not right, but isn't 1+1+-1=1?
HarryPutter*ca*
May 31, 2007

or 1+1+1= 1 set of triplets

There's no real single answer here... It's not a trick at all.

1dog+1cat+1mouse+1dog
The cat eats the mouse and then the dog chases the cat to Timbuktu.

oh at first i thought this was like the 1 that was when does 1+1=1 and the answer was when you turn the + into a x 1x1=1. lawl.

1 cheese + 1 mouse + 1 cat = 1 cat
