Was thinking about starting a new thread but how about this maths puzzle:

 

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11633856

 

The story says an IQ of 150 is required to solve it. Don't want to appear to be a Smart Donkey but I saw the solution in about one minute - and I don't quite have an IQ of 150. I bet a lot of people on this site would see it equally as quickly - so calling BS on the story.

 

 

5 seconds.

Took about 10 seconds to "solve" (more accurately, spot the pattern) the first time I saw it.  It's bordering on clickbait.  "Only high IQ people can solve this, can you?"

Yeah - the Herald is getting reprehensible  and almost at the point where I can't be bothered going there any longer. Sorry - going OT.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

So either the population of GZ is of higher than average intelligence (highly likely regardless) or it's really not that difficult.

It can't be very hard because I'm typically not good at that kind of stuff and I got it no problem.

Pandas hiding in drawings of snowmen, "unsolvable" maths problems and Kim Kardashian's ass. Things people think will "break the internet" when all you really need is a decent DoS attack.

Saw this one on facebook yesterday, and it lead to some funny answers.  People selectively remembering rules from high school, but not the provisos associated with them.

 

Ironically most could easily (albeit manually) work out what I considered to be the hardest part in the middle.

 

 

 

9 - 3 ÷ 1/3 + 1 = ?

I guess many of you are smarter than me... I took me about 10 seconds if I'm honest.

Hmm, first time round I got 19 ...

 

Then aha !! Multiply / Division first, add / subs next ...

 

So yeah, 1

 

 





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Depends whether that's a third in the middle, or one divided by three. If the latter, / doesn't have precedence over รท.

Sometimes, it's best to not say anything....
