Since I have a degree in math science, this was extremely easy. But it is a good quiz for most people.
Jul 22, 2010

Nice teaser, I got it as soon as Is saw the 5,280.
Jul 22, 2010

I got it with the 5280...great teaser!

I looked at it quickly this morning before I left for work. I saw a lot of digits 0, 1, 6, and 9 and tried to equate them to upside down letters or leetspeak.

Later I looked again, and missed the 5,280, but 1,760 jumped out at me and I knew.

Who wants to try it with an acre? The non-metric system of measures is certainly much better for puzzles.

well I didn't get it but it was worth trying. Good one by the way what is leetspeak?
Jul 22, 2010

i got it : P it was hard at first but when i saw 5,280 it rang a bell so i remembered 5,280 feet was the same as a mile and i looked up all the other ones and got it right (:

Like some of the others, the 5,280 gave it away for me. Very clever.
Jul 22, 2013

I didn't like it. Sorry!

As a Canadian young enough to have been born after the conversion to metric, I have very little concept of imperial measurements and had no idea how many feet were in a mile.
I assumed it was a measurement or some sort when I noticed the pattern in the metric numbers and like someone above, rounded the first one to 1.6 and got it from there.
Jul 22, 2013

Like others, 5280 gave it away.

A Groupy Math Teaser!
Jul 22, 2013

That was a long way to go for a teaser.

I'm with the group who said 5280 gave it to me. Thanks for posting. I liked this one!
Jul 30, 2016

I knew the 5280 is a mile, figured out the inches and yards but lost me on the metrics.
