Yes but you can do the same subtraction sum over and over again until you die

I agree. You can subtract 6 from 36 as many times as you want until the day you die. Maybe that shoule be the answer instead.

I also agree, you could use up 18,562 pieces of paper, and still keep subtracting 6 from 36. Then using roman numerals.......

That is so simple

Good try

O_wise_one why cant it be 18,563?.....lmao....nice try but it is easy

Well yes, but you are forgetting this is a trick brainteaser, not a math one

how about this answer: you can only subtract 6 from 36 once. after that, you have 3

That wouldn't be subtracting.

Great Teaser but i figured it out easily after the first time it is obvious that you are taking 6 from 30,24,18,12,6,...

name are tiny, but the person who said "then you'd have 3" that was the answer I had. I think we're still right

Oh!

I said infinit time, but you'd always get 30.
