Scratch your head to solve these brain teasers by Creative Computing Magazine




Brain Teaser #1


Write down your age (say 11)
multiply by 2 (22)
subtract 3 (19)
multiply by 50 (950)
add 39 (989)
add the change - under $1.00 - in your pocket (989+32=1021)
and add 111 (1132)

You will be surprised to find that the first two digits in the answer always equal your age and the last two digits always equal the amount of chanqe in your pockets.
Why?
