Brain Teaser

RULES: use creative thinking to get the answer. No fair looking it up and passing up on thinking.

“Take the number of the contiguous US states, double that and add the number of “winds”. Then subtract the number of Ali Baba’s thieves. Divide by the number of days in May minus one. Cube the result. Answer?”

  1. Okay, I think I have this one. Is the answer 8?

    There are 48 contiguous states, doubled is 96, adding the number of winds (4) gives you 100, subtract the number of thieves (40) and you get 60, dividing by the number of days (31-1) will leave you with 2, and if you cube the result (2³)… you get 8.

    Here’s hoping!
