## Comments

i didnt get it im only in 5th grade though so i guess any 1 higher than that will get it

Okay, ya got me! And I even knew the answer, but all the 1,000s suckered me right in.

Well done.

Well done.

I knew the answer but I dont agree with the teaser itself. The statements before the actual question dont help you get the answer. It would be the same to write a teaser saying" How many bytes are there in a kylobyte"

theyre there to decieve you
