 Posted by al111 10/28/07 It was alright But u didnt u te right vocabulary when u said add 4 to your answer you should ave said now add on 4 Posted by lukeschett 10/28/07 It was very good. Posted by jasmin215 10/28/07 :-? i dont get it. what was MY number? it is either 300, 336, or 426.... those werent my numbers... Posted by bookworm91 10/28/07 Hmmm.. will someone explain this, please? :P Posted by Panther91 10/28/07 At first I was going to say "Add a 4," but then the answer might have been too obvious then. And jasmin215, I was asking you to add a 4 anywhere in the number instead of increasing the number by 4. Hope that clears any confusion... Posted by bookworm91 10/28/07 OOOHH I sure am dull!! Haha, yes that makes sense now. Nice one! :oops: Posted by jasmin215 10/29/07 :lol: no, i still dont get it :oops: but okay :wink: very cute Posted by bookworm91 10/29/07 Jasmine, you should have gotten 30 for your answer. Then, you were supposed to add a four, not actually add it to the sum, but just add it on to the number. So it would be 30 + 4 = 304, 340, or 430. Get it? Just put a four on the number. :wink: Posted by jzthebomb 10/29/07 Good teaser! :lol: :lol: Posted by 1smart_okie 10/30/07 I don't get it! :oops: :( :o Posted by dudebomb93 10/31/07 I don't get it either Posted by shenqiang 11/01/07 I think that this teaser need a change. If "add 4" can be understood differently, then so can "100+50" and "divide by five". This teaser will have many more possible answers. Posted by cheesepie 11/14/07 Guys think about it. There used to be a trick at my school. The kids would come up and say, "What's 2+2?" And they'd get you to say 4. And they said the anwser was 22. Don't think of them as numbers, but letters. like num+ber=number 30+4=304 :D Posted by Tongue-Twister 11/16/07 I don't quite get it, to be honest :oops: . Posted by jjj055 11/18/07 :roll: :roll: :roll: Posted by Smart_Alex 11/21/07 Ah, I get it. You have to put in a 4 to your sum, NOT ADD as in 30 + 4. Pretty good. Posted by preppygirl 11/22/07 i was thinking it was a trick cuz it was an expression. boy im a moron Posted by mercedes13 11/23/07 this is so ****ing retarded Posted by aango 11/24/07 Well, I had a trick answer. 7.14159... You said add four to yuor number, not the solution, so my number was pi! It makes sense. Posted by zeepuzzlemaster 11/25/07 except pi is 3 .14159 :P :lol: :lol: And it could go either way... Posted by dachshund2k3 11/28/07 it should say "add a 4" that would still make it kind of tricky but clear up confusion to the answer Posted by smartsandsoccer 12/16/07 I don't get what was so hard about that..... you just had to add the number 4 to your number which would be 304. :roll: Posted by MAvanzi 12/25/07 The Answer should be 34 but you made it has if you mean put the 4 in the answer :( Posted by 974999gec 12/25/07 ha! i didn't get it, but now i do! lol Posted by kashby 12/26/07 didnt get it Posted by fishhooky 01/02/08 If you interpret 'add 4' as 'position the symbol representing four somewhere amongst the symbols representing the number thirty' then you should really also apply this to dividing 150 by 5, thus, the answer should be 41550, 14550, 15450, 15540 or 15504. Posted by savannahlz9 01/31/08 The answer could also be a quarter Posted by Wa11E 09/23/08 Understand your thinking, but not on board with your answer. that is placing a foour adding implies a mathamatical operator. IMOP that is Posted by Cindzey 11/04/08 the answer could ALSO be 34. Posted by Elios 11/12/08 That gets a grimace. :roll: Still, I admit I am well and truly tricked! :lol: Posted by gottalovetacsc 11/30/08 Hmm.. It was ok. I think it should have different wording. Posted by ObamaGirl 01/24/09 What? I'm confuzzled :oops: Posted by rstuckmaier 03/14/09 If 30 + 4 is 304, etc. Then shouldn't 100 + 50 be 10050? Then my number is 20104. Posted by Lord_Hawk 09/28/09 I think that there is a lack of consistency with the vocabulary used in the trick. Posted by MusiK 12/26/09 oh I get it now *smacks head* :lol: Posted by Gwendalla 09/17/11 I thought it was 30, because that WAS MY NUMBER! Posted by Benjiboo 11/19/11 my answer was 114 :o
