3 + 4
Logic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
How is it possible that 3 + 4 = 5?
Answer
Using VECTORS
i.e. 3 m North + 4 m East
= 5 metres North East
3^2 = 9
4^2 = 16
9 + 16 = 25
SQ Root of 25 = 5

 Pony, a vector is a length, like 3 inches. In this case, he is using a 3 inch pencil, a 4 inch pencil, and a 5 inch pencil to make a triangle.

 Good teaser, but shouldn't it be under maths?

 This is stupid... yes the answer makes sense but the last time I checked I'm not psychic... clearly anyone would think that you're talking about just 3 and 4 and not the directions. This shouldnt even be "logic" cuz there is no way to logically work that out. This should be at best a "trick" teaser. This is almost as stupid as saying how can 1 = 1000? because 1 kg = 1000 grams. That is STUPID

 It takes a bit of logic to think of the connection from one set of numbers to another set of numbers without any background information. It could belong elsewhere, but it seems fine as is.
Pythagorean triples. Fun.
