Fingers

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

If you multiply together the number of fingers on one person's right hand to another person's to another person's till you get the product of the fingers on the right hands of everyone in the world, what is the most likely product?

For instance, one person has 5 fingers, and his friend has 5 fingers. The product is 25. Another person with 5 fingers would make the product 125. This goes on till everyone's finger number is multiplied.

What's the answer?

now you go and prove that there is a person without any fingers on his right hand. i'm sure there is, but you cant just assume!!

I dont think this would work because the teaser says u keep going untill all the fingers in the world are used, but if the person has no fingers u wouldnt even put a zero u would just not count it

...isn't the answer 'whats'?
you said that "whats the answer" - there wasn't even a question mark at the end of it!

...isn't the answer 'whats'?
you said that "whats the answer" - there wasn't even a question mark at the end of it! - ok and now the computer is showing a question mark, but i still maintain that "whats" is the answer

Clever idea, but kind of a sick joke.

AROB . My friend lost his right arm in Vietnam, so I think this teaser was very offensive.

Aug 16, 2011

Offensive? Please, leave the politically correct crap some where else. This space is for comments on this teaser only. It's obvious the author certainly meant no offense.

This teaser was clever.

Here's a question,if a person has no fingers why would he/ she be in the group, given they have no fingers.

Clever!

This is an old one, I've seen it before. Someone with no fingers would be in the group because they are still a person, just on with no fingers on their right hand. someone with out an arm should not be included as they have no hand.
I know for sure there are people with no fingers, one of the boys' phys-ed teacher at the high school I went to had only a thumb on one of his hands (can't remember which one as it has been many many moons since I graduated).

Hey crazy10snob. My comment was about the teaser. You have about the same compassion as a field mouse
gaylewolfAus*
Aug 16, 2011

I feel compelled to respond to two previous comments. Doehead, I think I know where you're coming from - the teaser affected you emotionally because of your friend and his horrible accident. But I think you were more upset and disturbed than offended. This subject matter affected you personally. And, crazy10man, I agree that the author meant no offense, and your comment on the teaser was complimentary, but it would have been nicer and more appropriate had you left out the "politically correct crap" line.

But, each of you has a right to express your feelings and that's what you were doing.

Brilliant!!

In my view, it shouldn't be in "Trick" category. The answer is very logical. Probably, Logic!!

There's a problem with this:

The thumb's not a finger.
