## ParthKohli 2 years ago Suppose that: 1 + 1 = 7 2 + 2 = 89 3 + 3 = 228 4 + 4 = ?

1. ParthKohli

Let's see how good you are at arithmetic. >:-)

2. ParthKohli

What kind of module?

3. shubhamsrg

404 ? (going by a forced logic !) -_-

4. Opcode

520 is Opcode guess?

5. ParthKohli

@shubhamsrg @Opcode no

6. jackkim4

8!!!!

7. ParthKohli

That's right! ^

8. ParthKohli

Does no one know 4 + 4 = 8?!

9. jackkim4

for realz

10. RD⁴²

What about 1 + 1, 2 + 2, and 3+3? Or is it just a trick?

11. ParthKohli

@RD⁴² ?

12. ParthKohli

13. RD⁴²

1 + 1 = 7 2 + 2 = 89 3 + 3 = 228 Why?

14. RD⁴²

I don't get the joke, honestly.

15. ParthKohli

I have asked you to just assume that. I didn't ask you to get to a conclusion that 1 + 1 is related to 4 + 4.

16. RD⁴²

It makes no sense, but ok.

17. jackkim4

>: )

18. shubhamsrg

Here was my forced logic : 7= (4)(5)/2 -3 89 = (13)(14)/2 -2 228 = (21)(22)/2 -3 So for odd terms like 1+1, or 3+3 , we subtract 3 from n(n+1)/2 for even terms, we subtract 2 now for n, it is 4,13,21 --> So from the differences, I say the next term is 28 hence 4+4 = (28)(29)/2 -2 =404 :3

19. ParthKohli

Sir, you have my respect.

20. Opcode

Too lazy to show my work :-). But I gave him a medal because he did ^_^.

21. shubhamsrg

LAWL !!

I know this is late, but I object. It's 424. Let \(\large x + x = \dfrac{1}{2}(57x^2 - 7x - 36)\) When x = 1, 1 + 1 = 7 When x = 2, 2 + 2 = 89 When x = 3, 3 + 3 = 228 Lastly, when x = 4, 4 + 4 = \(\boxed{424}\) http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=table [%2857+x^2+-+7x+-+36%29%2F2%2C+{x%2C1%2C4}] Looks like it is safe to say that this question is ambiguous. Sir, you are not supposed to post an ambiguous question, @ParthKohli

23. ParthKohli

how is this ambiguous? do you not know 4 + 4 = 8?

24. micahwood50

Yet, you said 1 + 1 = 7

25. ParthKohli

I asked you to suppose 1 + 1 = 7. I didn't ask you to assume that 4 + 4 will be based on 1 +1, 2 + 2 and 3 + 3.

26. micahwood50

It does since 2 + 2 = \(\large 8\)9 and 3 + 3 = 22\(\large 8\) Beside shubhamsrg has other answers. There are several reasonable answers for this, hence ambiguous.

27. micahwood50

Also, 'suppose' means 'assume,' according to dictionary. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/suppose

28. RD⁴²

@micahwood50 Thank you! @ParthKohli He has good points...

29. Opcode

It's a trick question :3 We fell for it :P

30. micahwood50

Oh and don't you know that 1+1 ACTUALLY equal 2?

31. micahwood50

If 1+1 =7, then it affects numeric system, which can also affect the value of 4.

32. micahwood50

And we know that 2+2 =89 so if 4+4 = 8 then 2 is bigger than 4.

33. micahwood50

You have not given whether numeric system affects 4 or not, hence ambiguous.

34. micahwood50

@ParthKohli

35. ParthKohli

If I haven't given so, you shouldn't assume that 4 + 4 is based on the prior sequence.

36. RD⁴²

so you admit this question is ambiguous
