DO NOT USE A CALCULATOR OR PENCIL AND PAPER

Start with 1000

Add 40

Add another 1000

Add 30

Add another 1000

Add 20

Add another 1000

Add 10

What is your total?

---------------------------------------000000-----------------------------

If you come up with 5000, you are incorrect. The correct answer is apparently 4,100 - you can now check with a calculator. Goodness only knows how this works. I came up with 5000 many, many times working it out in my head. Never was very good at maths though.:( :( :mad: :mad: :confused: :confused:
