Since the beginning of time, people have always loved a good

brain teaser. We grew up reading Where’s Waldo? books and

putting together puzzles. Though highly frustrating at times,

we just can’t seem to resist a good riddle, challenging

crossword, or game of Sudoku.

The challenge below is one of my favorites!

It isn’t about some kind of impossible calculation, but about

honest old school math. This is probably why it is so fun to

take on these types of challenges, just trying to remember

the process brings in a little nostalgia while giving you a

sense of accomplishment at the same time.

Okay, to the challenge. Below we see a picture with a math

problem. Can you solve it without a calculator – what answer

will you come up with?

How was it? Take your time and concentrate! Below you will

see the correct answer.

Here is the solution

The answer is 104.

Why is 104 the correct answer? You might

ask.

For starters, we have to calculate the multiplication,

25 x 0, which becomes 0.

Then we have the number 50 + 50 – 0 + 2 + 2

which is 104.

So again, the answer is 104.

Did you get it right? Congratulations on that case! Now press
