I thought it was when it was by one

65/1=65

65X1=65

65/1=65

65X1=65

Nice teaser! I also thought it was multiplying/dividing by one, but that works too!

I thought one too, but your answer works almost as well.

Multiplying/dividing by one works but this teaser is in the Science category and not in Math

I suppose that when it is by one does work... hadn't thought of that.

However, V_Bapat has a good point.

Yes, and that is the only reason I didn't really think it would be 1. I figured if it was 1 then it would have had to be in the wrong category

I jumped to the divide/multiply by one answer too, not noticing that it was a Science, not Math category. It's much more interesting as it is; the Math answer was too easy. Nice work!

only one thing that does. its mitosis and meiosis

good work

Very good teaser. I liked that.

Nice. I've been studying cell reproduction in school, so I got it right away. Fun. Good job!

Nice play on words.

I said 'when you do it to 1'

MATH Is what I thought reading the math signs, forgetting the category. lol, percentage locating the per cent which is still probably wrong. Good Work.

Hmmmm....definitely could have been when it was by 1

Even I thought of one! Just a suggestion- maybe u cud include a hint which says "If you're thinking of "one", ur an idiot cuz this is in the SCIENCE category! " That would have made it fun!! But then again, i tend to be harsh....
