yay first comment.... Great teaser

or 1 and 1.0?

Yeah I was thinking the same, boodler.

You could add a an exponent zero to each, making each equal 1.

YAY GOT IT

It couldn't be boodler's answer because you didn't add anything to the 1.

Anyway, loved it.

I got a math question right!!!

I didn't get it at first but as soon as I saw the answer I got it!

I added a zero to the right of 1 and a zero to the left of 10, making them both 10.

Yeah I got it! ;-) Great teaser ;-)

Happy to have gotten it and had fun along the way. Thanks!

That was WAAAAAAAAAAAYY too easy! Although, superb teaser.

I think this should go as a trick rather than logic.

aw i missed that one, clever though

oh...i thought u added a zero to the end of "1" and 10+0=10 so 1 became 10 and 10 is still 10.

so my answer was "add zero".

oh well !

great teaser!

so my answer was "add zero".

oh well !

great teaser!

Great teaser. instead I put the decimal in back of the one and in the middle of the ten. (1. and 1.0) But works either way!

lol, great one dont

Superb

I like the teaser, but this isn't a logic problem.
