Tricky Question….?

Posted on: May 15, 2008

Very tricky arithmetic! Note: This must be done in your head only .
Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000 . Now add 30 .
Add another 1000 . Now add 20 . Now add another 1000
Now add 10 . What is the total?

Scroll down for answer…..

Did you get 5000?

The correct answer is actually 4100.

If you don’t believe it, check it with a calculator!

Clever! You get so caught up in the 1000’s you don’t pay attention to the 100!
