Mental Floss 90

The answer to last week’s challenge is Q: What word if pronounced right is wrong and if pronounced wrong is right?

A: The word “Wrong”.

This week’s challenge is a slightly different kind …

Q: Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?


Addressing Complex Issues, Critical and Creative thinking are non-negotiables in this age of accelerating change.  If improving performance is a priority, Think Quick can help. Call us on 0400 109727 or email for a chat on how we can add this value.

The answer to this week’s question, along with a new challenge will be posted next week.

Enjoy the weekend!
