Geeez enough with the cheating lol....

anyone genuinely get this? I stared at it for hours trying to get it (about sixty seconds actually).

No - its not a trick question, its not mathematical either. Its really just lateral thinking with a healthy dose of logic applied to it.

As I said, my answer is already there. It took me a few seconds to get the answer - but a few minutes to start the laptop to post. Check the HTML source and you will see my answer as a comment just after my first post... Or I can post it here.

We'll never be too old to learn, and we learn at least one new thing every day.
