    Trust PH to go from "fun brain teaser" to "angry wet cats fighting in a sack" in 2 minutes. Lol.

    Clearly, the fascists think that 96 is the outside the box answer while the totalitarians think it's 40.

    Maybe Ian can give you the first line of the equation if he wants.

    Not sure he has to. Sounds like everyone sees both answers.

    I think Amelia is right. 40 is a trick. It ignores the missing steps of the sequence. It's not right.

    40 is a red herring. 96 is the proper answer.


    Instead of bickering - someone post another one. They're fun.
    Thanks from Amelia and boontito

    I think which one you see as outside the box depends on how your brain works.
