:-? 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... | |

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: | |

Good teaser! :lol: :lol: | |

I don't get it! :oops: :( :o | |

Posted by dudebomb93 | 10/31/07 |

I don't get it either | |

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. | |

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 | |

I don't quite get it, to be honest :oops: . | |

:roll: :roll: :roll: | |

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 |
