Brain Teasers


Hi Folks,

Here's some questions for you to try and figure you. They are so simple that they are hard. I do it with students at school when we have free time in class.
Good Luck : )

1. What 8 letter word has 1 letter in it?

2. 12 + 12 = 24 but can 12 + 12 = 12 and all you do is add there are no
negative numbers.

Wishing all of you well and May God Bless You!

Sue

Hi Nakamova,

Take my word 12 + 12 is very easy and it made me mad when I found out
the answer. Here's a hint: We look at this everyday at work and at home especially on Friday's. Good Luck and May God Bless You!

If it was 12pm and you added 12 hours, it'd be 12am. Hence 12+12=12?

Brain Teaser Number 3

5+5+5=550
Add one line to the problem so this is correct. I sat there for 2hrs. trying to
figure it out and don't put a line through the = sign.

Wishing you only the best and May God Bless You!
