If you count 20 houses on your right going to school and 20 houses on your left coming home from school, how many houses have you counted?

But if you count twenty _of_ the houses home and back, and there are 30 houses... then you are counting thirty houses.. but only 10 of them twice O_o

That was just a random observation.

You could also count 20 different houses. That would be 40, but, the key to this one is the fact that it is in the TRICK category, not math.
