“Make this without a calculator or paper just your mind: You have 1000, add 40, add 1000, add 30, again 1000, add 20, add again 1000 and finally 10. What is the result?”
When I browsed through the answers, the results were staggering … most people answered
The intelligence of Facebook fails again … WRONG!! I know you’re like but I added everything up and it came out to 5000 how can that be wrong! Easy … because you weren’t paying attention. By the 7th line (the one that says add again 1000 in case you can’t count to 7 either) you should have 4090. Hate to break it to you but 4090 + 10 is 4100 … not 5000. And if you’re like me and don’t like doing this the long way, just add them all up in groups: 1000 + 1000 + 1000 + 1000 + 40 + 30 + 20 + 10 = 4100. The equation didn’t say you had to do in order 🙂
Facebook stupidity is over 9000!!!!
But this wouldn’t be a Facebook Math Fail without the responses and insults from the lucky contestants: I couldn’t have said it better myself overly-blonde Facebook lady
You saw what? The wrong answer?
At least he admitted it
Apparently, not easy enough
So says the dumbass that got it wrong
An then we have the philosophicals over-thinking the question. Meh, I thought about that too but although it doesn’t say add the 10 at the end, that makes the entire thing not make sense. Okay you add all that … and finally 10. If we followed exactly what this guy said, you would have 4090 as you spend the next hour contemplating about what it meant by “and finally 10”; it doesn’t say do anything with it, so let’s just give the question the benefit of the doubt and just assume it meant add it too since that’s what we did with the other lines.
Even if you didn’t at the last 10 the answer would not be 4900 … it would be 4090 -_- Trying to deflect the attention off himself because he added it up wrong too.
Accepted defeat and didn’t even try
Yeah … seriously!
Sure it was easy to get it wrong!
