Brain teaser

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.
Now add another 1000.
Now add 30.
Add another 1000.
Now add 20.
Now add another 1000.
Now add 10.

What is the total you came up with?


You may be surprised.

If this is a “trick” I am reluctant to post my answer for fear of ruining it for someone else.

It is tricky. I would say double check your calculations with a calculator and see if what you did in your head matches the calculators answer.

First time I was wrong lol :slight_smile:

Monsieur Racing Pigeon,
40100 is a typo :imp:

check again lol

I think he edited his original to match my answer of forty-one hundred.

I should put that on the “grumpy wordsmiths” thread. the hundreds stop after 999.

I will return to my corner now.

LOL yeah hundreths stop after 999!


You making a typo? What?


From you I would never expect a typo, especially of one of such magnitude.
