    Apparently, the older you are, the harder it is...my brother is really annoyed because he still can't work it out and I am older than him!

    8809= 6 3333=0 7111= 0 5555=0

    2172=0 8193=3 6666=4 8096=5

    1111=0 7777=0 3213=0 7662=2

    7756=1 9312=1 6855=3 0000=4

    Not quite...it is one of those problems that bugs you until you get it, and then you wonder how on earth it took so long to solve!

    I am aware that 2581=2

    I was indicating that applying the same rule yes=1 and nope=3
  7. Lalad

    Lalad Star commenter

    Only if you accept a variation on the rule: if you apply the rule strictly, yes=0 and nope=1
  8. doomzebra

    doomzebra Occasional commenter

    Hardly a variation. If you don't accept e=1 then why would you accept 9=1

    Yes = 2. Easy-peasy! x

    Google = 4? or 3.5?

    I'd be interested to see evidence that younger children can solve it more quickly. I can see why it's inferred but there's a catch.

    Absolutely no idea.

    I've given myself a headache trying to work this out. Please, please, please will someone put me out of my misery at some point? [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Even though this 'went the rounds' last year I couldn't remember the answer and had to 'do a search'!

    Oh of course- can see it now! Pre-schoolers are so much more visually aware and into seeing 'shapes' in everything.

    RedQuilt =your name would be 3! (unless you count the half in 'e'? If not -lammadelana would be 6 not 7 Duke of York)

    What would 'I' be???

    I've looked at the difference between certain numbers the multiplying of them, how it is laid out thus ignoring numbers altogether essentially and I can't do it. If it was a musical pattern I would have seen it almost as I were reading it, but these infuriate me because they make no sense to me.

    If this rules can equally be applied to names then the big numbers as numbers are not important. Oh goodness knows.

    What would I be?

    Quite probably.
