### Brain Teasers

# Half and Half

Try this out. Take the number one hundred twenty-three thousand four hundred and fifty-six and break that number in half. What do you get?

### Hint

Unconventional thinking will help you out.### Answer

You would get 123 and 456. You would take 123,456 (one hundred twenty-three thousand four hundred and fifty-six) and literally break the number in half instead of finding out half of that number!Hide Hint Show Hint Hide Answer Show Answer

its kinda sad wen i have to get a calculator out to see i got it wrong lol

I thought it was one hundred twenty-three thousand.

Pretty nice teaser, but very simple.

A nice teaser. But it was easy.

Nice one

Well, considering that when I read to "break the number in half," splitting the number into 123 and 456 was the thing that naturally came to mind, I don't see how this is much of a trick. Or a teaser of any sort.
