Mental Floss 304

The answer to last week’s challenge is: Q: Using only addition, how do you add eight 8’s and get the number 1,000.

A: 888 + 88 + 8 + 8 + 8 = 1,000.

This week’s thinking challenge is …

Q: I am an odd number. Take away one letter and I become even. What number am I?

The answer along with a new challenge, next week.

Have an excellent weekend!
