A New Math 'Teaser'

This is like an optical illusion....with numbers! This riddle MUST be done

in your head and NOT using pen and paper.

Try it...it's weird
Take 1000 and add 40 to it.

Now add another 1000.

Now add another 30. Another 1000.

Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10.

What is the total?
.

.
.
Did you get 5000?
.

.
.
CONTINUE SCROLLING DOWN
.

Seems most people do.

The answer actually is 4100.

Don't believe it?? Try it with your calculator.





Today's Reflection:
Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.




Live Long and Prosper...
