## lgbasallote 3 years ago LGBARIDDLE If you take away nine from six, then take away ten from nine, and lastly, take away fifty from forty, then you get six. How is this possible?

1. lgbasallote

this one is actually harder

2. MarcLeclair

akitav doesnt it give this: 6 - 9 + 10 + 40 - 50 whjen you expand? it doesnt give you 6 though O_O

3. akitav

Yes, i missed out the second step, which is why i took it off.

4. lgbasallote

that's where the "riddle" part of "lgbariddle" comes in

5. MarcLeclair

sorry didnt see you took it off man :/

6. akitav

Math wouldn't be fun if there weren't any wrong answers, then it'd just be philosophy. @MarcLeclair No worries, life is good :)

7. lgbasallote

math is never fun

I got it. 40-50 = -10 + 10 = 0 9-9 = 0 + 6

goodnight iggy.

10. MarcLeclair

Weird I love cal 1

11. lgbasallote

this is more on out-of-the-box-thinking rather than mathematics

12. akitav

@lgbasallote Oh wise green one!

13. ganeshie8

well then you cant take 9 from 6, or any of the rest of the things. so ur 6 will be there as it is

14. lgbasallote

nope. think more out-of-the-box

15. MarcLeclair

I hate yo uthis is haunting me right now

16. lgbasallote

that's what i do

17. lgbasallote

then you feel very bad for missing a simple solution to these riddles. i love those feelings.

18. MarcLeclair

any hint ? :/

19. xcrypt

I hate this, I can't figure it out :p. I was thinking 6 groups of things, but I'm probably wrong.

20. Mimi_x3

are we allowed to rephrase the question?

21. lgbasallote

rephrase how?

22. Mimi_x3

instead of taking away nine from six; we take away six from nine lol my teacher taught me this for combinations and permutations..dont know if its relevant sound stupid

23. lgbasallote

nope you can't

24. lgbasallote

you have to follow directions

25. shubhamsrg

got it!! lol..1 min i shall post..

26. lgbasallote

sure

27. shubhamsrg

SIX – IX = S IX – X = I XL – L = X ------->SIX :D

28. shubhamsrg
