  • Well done sassy's calculator

  • ha ha ha mental iv done this on the calculator as kept coming up with same answer and it is 4,100 yet when i try its 5000 i now know im thick but at least im not alone ha ha ha

  • You are never alone with Healthunlockders

  • The numbers 10,20,30,40 add up to 100 ,Not 1,000 therefore equalling 4,100 not 5000.

    Which by now every one has Sussed out!

    Just as I used to get marked down in Maths exams for not reading the questIon!!

  • The truth as you say is in the reading Myma

  • Doh ! :)

  • Simple when you know why

  • Try this. Add up all the numbers except the final 10. I bet you get 4090 (well at least you should unless you're blonde, or female maybe.) Then add 10 to 4090 and voila 4100. Simples.

  • ?+?+?+?+ = What?

  • 1000+40=1040

    1040+1000=2040

    2040+30=2070

    2070+1000=3070

    3070+20=3090

    3090+1000=4090

    then 4090+10=4100.

  • Oh dear.To be done in your head only !!!!!!! Never mind it is 4100

  • 4100 first time, and I was rubbish at maths in school

  • Improved greatly with ?

  • Couldn't do it resorted to calculater, maybe I should dye my white hair back to blonde.

  • I have every confidence in you.Lets start again 2+?=4 Hee Hee

  • I this war......try this one 180 x 2 - 16 + 140 = Ha Ha...

  • You got to laugh !
