I've seen this "trick" so many times that it has become old.

6000? I've never seen it before, so I probably blew it, right?

Good answer, let's wait and see what some other guys get. :)

it worked.

I ended up with 6k as well... is that a good thing or does that make both of us stupid?

Ah, haha, that's good. I got it now, I see what I did wrong. Hmmm, sort of funny how that works.

I figured there was some sort of trick. So I just took my time with it. Tried not to rush and just thought it through. It doesn't really move all that fast.

Great. I was stupid.

And I'm quoting myself.

This is not a good day for my self-esteem.

Don't feel bad. I've found that on the internet approx 50% of the people don't get it. The other half probably cheats. In real life, when done with flash cards, 80% of the people get it wrong. My bro is an engineer and he and a couple of his buddies got it wrong also.

It all depends how you are "saying it in your head". If you add 1000 and 10, and in your head are saying "one ten" instead of "one thousand and 10", you are gonna get this wrong.

True, I've had people do it twice and still get 6000 both times.

5100 is the answer, you at the end, you have 5090 and then a 10 pops up. Naturally in your head you increase the thing to 6000 when it actually only goes up to 5100.

HOOOOWAH!!!!! Got it right. I almost said 6k, then I figured it out. It's a little mind trick. I was a little worried when all those people got 6000.

I was 1000 off. Yeah, not good.

6 people got it right so far, 4 have gotten the expected wrong answer, and 2 just got the wrong answer.

I got 5100. It is funny how some got 6000, though. Paul got 6010? How'd you go about doing that?

ricky bobby
05-22-2007, 07:25 PM
I should have made the numbers go faster.

5,100.

Before it, I saw Jughead's post saying so, but I didn't see ricky bobby say that it was the official correct answer.
