For the fourth consecutive Saturday, here is a brain teaser for you (as usual, feel free to post your solution in the comments):
|1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 +
1 + 1 + 1 + 1 + 1 +
1 + 1 x 0 + 1 = ?
…and now, here’s the solution to last week’s puzzle:
The answer is 6. Like the preceding week, I arrived at this answer by dividing each number after the equals sign, with the one in front of it. A pattern quickly emerged; this time, the multiplier was always equal to the number in front of the equals sign minus one.
