Motorcycle Math

1. ## Motorcycle Math

Here is a very simple little math test, don't take any notes or use a calculator. Your replies must be instantaneous.

Plus 20. Plus 1000.
And plus 10.

What is the total?

2. Answer: 5000??? Wrong!!! The correct answer is 4100. Try again with a good calculator.

3. damn that one got me!!!! LOL

4. wohoo. I got it and I have dyslexia.

6. oh god it took me like 10 minutes to figure that whole thing out.

7. Ok,
I can't figure out how to get 5000! Huh?
Is it in the last step when you are adding 10 to 4090?

8. Clever, but I wasn't fooled. Probably because I was looking for the hitch while I was reading it.

9. I'm dyslexic too and I think that's part of why it helped me....instead of taking the numbers in order and doing it one at a time I added the big ones and the little ones seperately then added em together......but that's just how I deal with the numbers being sdrawkcab

10. mmm.... still wondering about how people are getting 5000....
I've taken way too many math courses....

11. I keep getting 5000 without the calculator and 4100 with. .

12. I got 5000 the 1st time and then recalculated and got 4100, now I can't remember how I got 5000 in the 1st place

13. 40+30+20+10 = 100. but when you add the 40+30+20+10 your mind tends to add another 0 because all the other numbers your working with are thousands, that is why you get 5000

T

14. It's that last damn 10 being added to the 4090. My mind just jumped to 5000 twice before I did it a third time and got the right answer.........

Stupid brain........

15. Math has always been my arch enemy...
