Easy.. but fun... sorta

good job...

good job...

The hint totally gave it away.

I submitted a teaser many months ago just like this one(it was called "Wheels"), except I only asked how many wheels a car had.

Good job though.

Good job though.

I got 35 wheels, both of my cars have spares.

Cute!! I liked it

HULAGIRL- what was so dunb about it? If you wanted a challenge, you wouldn't have read the hint. It was an AWESOME teaser!

I included the spares too

i'm not even going to ask how hulagirl decided this teaser was gross; i thought it was ok, but i think you can do better!

the hint made it way to easy

Nice Teaser.

Are the extra two for the cars for the spare tires?

What is this doing in Trick? It should be in Math

The hint was the answer

I knew it was 33 but then went back and read it again and thought the trick was the wording of how many wheels all together. Since none actually touch each other, it could also be 0. Either way, good job.

i did the same as froggygg - the question doesn't ask how many wheels are THERE ALTOGETHER, it asks how many wheels are ALL TOGETHER, which is an entirely different question...

this teaser is not suppose 2 b in da trick category, its suppose 2 b in da maths category instead.

this wasn't a trick kinda question

it was late when i first read this so i just said

"a lot"

"a lot"

I also included the one in the question

Great teaser!

Great teaser!

Spare tires,,, ok, what about the steering wheels?

I added spare tyres...ah well, good teaser!

I saw trick and thought 0 wheels. It's a junk yard and they were all removed.

What about the steering wheels for the wagons? Surely there are spares to be taken into account as well!

3 bikes @ 2 each = 6 wheels

2 cars @ 4 road wheels, 1 steering wheel, and 1 spare wheel = 12 wheels

4 wagons, wheels as cars = 24 wheels

1 unicycle = 1

total 43 wheels

3 bikes @ 2 each = 6 wheels

2 cars @ 4 road wheels, 1 steering wheel, and 1 spare wheel = 12 wheels

4 wagons, wheels as cars = 24 wheels

1 unicycle = 1

total 43 wheels

Xxxv.

much too easy after the hint. shoulda left the hint out, i woulda liked it better

i already got it before the hint and then this was my reaction

after the hint it was a math teaser, not a trick. and for those who say "don't read the hint then", HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THE HINT WAS GONNA BE THAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

What about Fly-wheels? Thats the thing that spins the transmission then your wheels and makes your car go when you hit the gas.

Is the trick that there is no trick?

this belongs more in the "math" teaser section. good teaser though

It doesn't belong in Math, but the hint was more like an answer. Otherwise, good job.
