# FB Friends

Matthew brags to Mark about how popular he is. He tells Mark that he has 1000 friends on FB. "You probably only have 10% as many friends as I do".

"You're a loser" Mark replied. "I have 10% as many friends as you. 10% TO THE POWER OF 10!!!"

How many more FB friends does Mark have over Matthew?

"You're a loser" Mark replied. "I have 10% as many friends as you. 10% TO THE POWER OF 10!!!"

How many more FB friends does Mark have over Matthew?

### Hint

This is in the trick sector, not mathematics.### Answer

Mark has less FB friends, not more.10% times 10% = 1%.

1% times 10% = 0.1%

0.1% times 10% = 0.01%...

Multiplying it to the power of 10 just makes it smaller. Mark has less than 1% as many FB friends as Matthew.
