does this make sense??? :-? :x

Yes, but you gotta be one of those who understand Hex. It took me a while and I kinda had to cheat and look up my conversion tables.

It's like the old joke: There are 10 kinds of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don't! :D :lol: :wink:

Superleaf1: No, it doesn't.

Im not good with that... and personally, it should be in the math category if it wasn't for the little play on words in the beginning... :roll: :wink: BTW, First comment by me ever :D feel special :wink:

And look at 57005 upside-down, it's the closest you can get to "souls" uusing numbers.

This went completely over my head. I feel very stupid! :oops: :cry:

this teaser is halfway between the math section and the trick section. :(

Posted by kwelchans08/30/10
It's a trick that requires a certain knowledge of math to get the trick.

It totally stumped me, but this teaser doesn't deserve such a low rating just because you can't get it. There's a balance of teasers on Braingle, some easy, some hard.

And I thought all trick questions are fun. This one proves me wrong. :-?

Posted by racoonieboy09/01/10
Well, it's because this is also part math. And you also require knowledge of hex.

I did not get it and i zoned out on the answer and the hint :x

Yeah not so fond of this math stuff

Posted by EnderofGames01/25/11
Definitely a trick question... And the best one I've seen for a while! Congrats!

Posted by TanCW04/01/11
I feel that this should be in Maths... I thought the answer was all dead people...

It is a tough call on where it belongs. It does sort of straddle the two categories. Wasn't that hard, but then I understand Hex. Good teaser.

:lol: I did not get it but I realised that DEAD is a number. My original guess was : No one. :-?

Posted by thebrain78911/07/11
Wait, what?

Posted by Totorogirl12/22/11
Isn't this math??

Posted by Candi708/14/12
Well I'll tell you one thing. I definitely don't understand it, so will somebody please explain the answer to me?????? :-?
