This is like an optical illusion....with numbers! This riddle MUST be done
in your head and NOT using pen and paper.

Try it...it's weird

Take 1000 and add 40 to it.

Now add another 1000.

Now add another 30. Another 1000.

Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10.

What is the total?

Did you get 5000?

Seems most people do.

The answer actually is 4100.

Don't believe it?? Try it with your calculator.

I got 4100. I guess being a Calculus teacher prepares you for stuff like this. Hey wait a minute, now when my students ask me, "when am I ever going to use this?" I could reply, "well, this one time, on club stogie..."

4100 here as well...perhaps we cigar smokers are old fashioned? Or maybe we are used to calculating by 64ths of an inch!
