does this make sense???
Aug 27, 2010

Yes, but you gotta be one of those who understand Hex. It took me a while and I kinda had to cheat and look up my conversion tables.

It's like the old joke: There are 10 kinds of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't!

Superleaf1: No, it doesn't.
Aug 27, 2010

Im not good with that... and personally, it should be in the math category if it wasn't for the little play on words in the beginning... BTW, First comment by me ever feel special

And look at 57005 upside-down, it's the closest you can get to "souls" uusing numbers.

This went completely over my head. I feel very stupid!
Aug 30, 2010

this teaser is halfway between the math section and the trick section.
Aug 30, 2010

It's a trick that requires a certain knowledge of math to get the trick.

It totally stumped me, but this teaser doesn't deserve such a low rating just because you can't get it. There's a balance of teasers on Braingle, some easy, some hard.

And I thought all trick questions are fun. This one proves me wrong.
Sep 01, 2010

Well, it's because this is also part math. And you also require knowledge of hex.

I did not get it and i zoned out on the answer and the hint
Jan 20, 2011

Yeah not so fond of this math stuff
Jan 25, 2011

Definitely a trick question... And the best one I've seen for a while! Congrats!
Apr 01, 2011

I feel that this should be in Maths... I thought the answer was all dead people...
Apr 02, 2011

It is a tough call on where it belongs. It does sort of straddle the two categories. Wasn't that hard, but then I understand Hex.
Good teaser.

I did not get it but I realised that DEAD is a number.

My original guess was : No one.
Nov 07, 2011

Wait, what?
Dec 22, 2011

Isn't this math??
Aug 14, 2012

Well I'll tell you one thing. I definitely don't understand it, so will somebody please explain the answer to me??????
