# Thread: Something to make you think (but don't think too hard)

1. ## Something to make you think (but don't think too hard)

I got this in about 3 or 4 minutes so apparently, I have a juvenile intellect heh

2. ## Re: 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.

There's more than one way to do it? PM me with the details lol - anyone else - feel free to PM me with an answer and I'll confirm it heh

4. ## Re: Something to make you think (but don't think too hard)

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

I laughed. And then cried.

well f*** me in the goat a\$\$

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

**** spoiler tags don't work on this forum...

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.
