I like this type of short and snappy math teaser - and an easy one is a nice change!

I wouldn't really call this a teaser. It's more of a basic grade school word problem. In other words, this was a really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, easy.



You're the one in the middle. Everyone else and I are the ones that are laughing. The truth hurts. Deal with it.

What Cogmatic said was cruel, and should have been removed from this site. Although that I must admit that this teaser was incredibly easy, it was fun - I was glad not to see just tedious sums which are only applicable to a small amount of viewers (because they are based on things that only people from a certain country/religion can understand). Even though challenges are usually fun, this was one which I think will be a hit with younger viewers. Good effort!

Cogmatic-why do you have to be so mean? There are a lot easy teasers...that doesn't make them any less fun and enjoyable!

And why bother even posting a comment just to hurt someone's feelings? It is a MAJOR waste of time!

Although this teaser was very simple, it ws fun...it's nice to have something easy once in a while so you don't have to totally drive yourself crazy! Good Job!!

A fun teaser, although it was easy!

While I don't agree with how he said it, Cogmatic's assessment of the "teaser" is spot-on. This is a word problem you'd expect to encounter in kindergarten or first grade.

That it has a 2.25 fun and 1.44 difficulty rating is a mockery of the rating system, which admittedly already mostly a popularity contest for the person who submitted the teaser and not a useful rating system.
