That may be the first rebus teaser I've actually liked! 1 out of 810 isn't bad, is it?

Well, I agree with bob. I dont like much rebuses, thats probably why i only have a few of them. That was my favorite rebus yet!

I like most rebuses but this one is one of my favourites

Oct 26, 2002

Don't worry, D. I was exaggerating. There must be at least SIX rebuses out there that I like. Who knows...maybe the other five are yours.

I too would like to voice my praise of this rebus. There are quite a lot of rebuses (should that be rebi?) that don't really challenge the grey matter too much, but this one did. Very well thought rebus. I hope it was an original...

I got it as well. Prime Ribs is a special cut of steak that is very delectable, and thus expensive and very sought after. Good one.

Prime numbers are numbers that only have two factors.(Factors are numbers that are multiplied to get a product. A product is the answer to a mutiplication problem.) Those two factors would be 1 and the number itself.Nice one!

I guessed spare ribs. I did not know that the symbol given meant prime.
zxyggrhynAph*
Jul 15, 2008

Jeieie... Knew the prase but answered 'prime rib'... Almost...
doeheadAus*
Jul 15, 2008

A prime teaser that tickled my ribs. Easily solved.
mrschmooshies
Jul 15, 2008

katamaster: There's no symbol in this rebus for prime. There are arrows pointing to Ribs numbers 2, 3, 5, and 7, which are all prime numbers. Thus, Prime Ribs.

I liked this one. Got it in a heartbeat, and it's always nice to start my day with a success!
kwelchansAus*
Jul 15, 2008

Isn't 1 a prime number too?
builderus*
Jul 15, 2008

kwelcans, I learned that 1 is prime and felt no arrow to it was misleading. Surprised that no one else pointed that out, so maybe I remember wrong.
flutflutflyer*il*
Jul 15, 2008

That is a really good rebus!!! Oh, and BTW if anyone wants to know, 1 is not a prime number.
kwelchansAus*
Jul 15, 2008

Hmm. I did a little research, and apparently, 1 is NOT a prime number. I guess you learn something new every day.
jcann*us*
Jul 15, 2008

Why is 1 not a prime number?

This was a good teaser!
bradon182001*us*
Jul 15, 2008

I totally didn't get it. Boy am I embarassed. Thanks for posting.
kwelchansAus*
Jul 15, 2008

The reason 1 is not considered a prime number is because it would mess with prime factorization. Every composite (non-prime) number has a unique prime factorization. For example, the prime factorization of 6 is 2x3. If 1 was considered prime, you could say 2x3x1, 2x3x1x1, etc.

Also, a prime number is generally defined as having TWO factors, 1 and itself. Since 1 IS itself, it only has ONE factor, so it is not a prime.

Very nice! This one took me a while. Great job!

Wait a minute! Isn't 1 a prime number too?

I rarely enjoy a rebus, but this one I really liked. Was easy but very enjoyable.

WOW!!!! A new teaser that's never been on here before. Hi to GW

Jul 17, 2011

Someone's being cute - and that's nice!! It was a good teaser and I'm sure if I knew a tiny bit more about math I would have gotten the answer! Have a great day this beautiful Sunday!!

Just outstanding! I really laughed.

I thought it was a BOXING MATCH!

4 LEFTS TO THE RIBS!
elentirAus*
Jul 18, 2011

Fun rebus! Only one thing puzzles me, I thought Prime Rib is both singular and plural. I never heard it referred to as Prime Ribs with an 's'.
Babe*
Jul 17, 2014

Count me among those who did not get or understand it. I guess we were not taught the same things when I went to school eons ago. This one was way over my head.
jaycr*us*
Jul 17, 2014

Did not solve this one, but I did grill ribs last night.
HABS2933Aca*
Jul 17, 2014

MMMM, Prime Rib, I think I need to go shopping.YUM!

Babe - the numbers that had arrows by them (2,3,5, and 7) are all Prime Numbers (a number >1 whose only no positive divisors are 1 and itself).
HABS2933Aca*
Jul 17, 2014

PS - Jaycr, you do know that prime rib and ribs are completely different right? Prime Rib is an expensive cut of roast. The last one we bought (2 bone) cost $40+ and was just enough to feed 4 adults with no left overs.
Think it is about time to do another dinner party now.

Jul 17, 2014

Since I'm still in my prime, I got it immediately.
Zykezexus*
Jul 17, 2014

When I saw the answer, I said to myself, "some types will love this." Looking at the comments I was right. It's good, but I like puzzles where you can get them without needing to know another fact. Like if you weren't "up" on your math terms, it was impossible.

This teaser was so good I decided to make an account after about two years of coming here without an account.

Thank you for the teaser.
auntiesisAus*
Jul 17, 2014

I was totally lost on this one. Shame on me.
gaylewolfAus*
Jul 17, 2014

Good to see you, Auntie Sis! This puzzle is not my thing. People either got it and loved it, or didn't! Loved the comments!
jaycr*us*
Jul 17, 2014

Thanks Habs, yes I know the difference between prime ribs and ribs. One I'll grill, the other one I can't afford.
