    Default Something to make you think (but don't think too hard)

    Only a few minutes here, but I'm alright with math and number patterns. When I looked up how the kids figured it out I laughed as I never would have thought to do it that way.

    I'm terrible with math, so I had to look it up since I still have an insatiable curiosity.

    I laughed. And then cried.

    I've been doing some digging around for this and found some really complex and technical ways of "solving" it - it is my opinion that these methods "happen" to come out with the correct answer by coincedence - the original puzzle is meant as one that can be solved by a pre-schooler who would be unlikely to build complex relational tables or work out technical methods involving prime numbers and algebraic substitution....

    In other words - real the original title heh - DON'T THINK TOO HARD

    Quite literally speaking: Think like a pre-schooler. I tried doing that. I still failed. lol

    Funny stuff. I love math puzzles. I got it right away too. Maybe it was a book my mom handed me when I was in 4th grade. It was a post graduate level math book where they gave you all kinds of tricks for solving long complicated equations. Unfortunately I would fail the "Show your work" section and then have to prove how I did the math.

    Great stuff!

    (Someone PM me the different ways to solve it, I am curious).

    My solution was "It's impossible". My way of preschool thinking.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!
