I'm pretty sure it's a hoax that pre-school children actually solve it in 5 to 10 minutes, but saying that is part of the clue to solving it.

I had to Google the answer up though. Too used to seeing the numbers and not the numerals.

It has nothing to do with the numbers it has to do with the number of circles you see in the number. So 8809 has 6 circles in it.

You'll notice that people who write "brain teasers" like this tend not to attach their names thereto. Mainly because they are tired of hearing "*SIGH* Nobody likes a smart-ass, Steve".

remember those math exams that are either boring or too difficult to even spend any effort on, and you just spend the time shading all those spaces inside the numeric characters on the nines, eights, sixes, etc.? this problem is just a counting game, on how many 'spaces' inside the numbers did you fill with your pencil.

count the o only the sum is correct

everyone got mine right :)

yes you are right, it took me alot of time. I was messed up in numbers, but the logic is in the number of circles, so I guess the answer is 2

Just add up the number of circles in the numbers. For example, 8 has 2 circles so, 8809 has a total of 6 circles.

its 2, less than a minute. just because your presented with a bunch of numbers and an equal sign doesn't mean its math.

I have no idea, but I'm still trying! Guess I'm not a preschooler.

WHY it's so easy took me 1min

all it is is find what each number stands for

like when 2222 is 0 all the 2's are 0's and when its 6666=4 then one 6=1

Took about a minute. Key for me was noting that none of the example results was higher than six. Theoretically, eight is possible with this setup, but the fact that the results are so constrained rules out alot of possibilities.

U wonder how many people realize that every single answer is wrong as the number 8 is not actually comprised of actual circles. While the numbers 9, 6, and obviously 0 do contain circles the letter 8 is not. If u said the number of enclosures then it might be correct but saying the number of circles is very inaccurate.

9999=4 means 9+9+9+9=4 so 9=1

0000=4 means 0+0+0+0=4 so 0=1.

so if 8809 =6 8+8+0+9=6 ,two 8 =6-1-1=4 (0=1,9=1) and 8 =2

at last 2581=0+0+2+0=2(5 is 0)

1111=0 means 1+1+1+1=0 so 1=0.

9999=4 means 9+9+9+9=4 so 9=1

0000=4 means 0+0+0+0=4 so 0=1.

so if 8809 =6 8+8+0+9=6 ,two 8 =6-1-1=4 (0=1,9=1) and 8 =2

<-- programmer here, knew what was going on after looking at the firstnumber. same for my colleagues, so your point is invalid. programmers can just abstract better than the rest of the world. while you'rebusy counting circles, we do stuff. so, play this games with your children, since you're like them (meaning smart, what else? ;)) ps: fuck off :)

2 is the answer

Numbers have been pounded into our mind as being representations of values. Being able to look past this bias is not a sign of a weak mind. Solved < 2mins.

Solved it in 3 Seconds, As i read the first comment :P

My mind is exploded :/

escuse me, but not so many people are as smart as some pre- schoolers like you!

i have a degree and figured it out in around 30s... so time scales not strictly true

+Laston Kirkland. The answer is 4 :)

Even without the obvious visual aspect, all you need to do it associate each number with an associated number, i.e. 6 = 1, because 4*6 =4, same goes for 9, and 0, and from that you can figure out that 8 is worth 2.

the answers are equal to the number of circles within each number

not again its 2 for god sake

the answer is 2

im pretty sure if I gave this to my five year old cousin, she wouldnt think of the fucking circles

It took me sometimes too, May be because the question is a bit misleading. in one side of the equation we have shapes and on the other side the numbers. when we look at an equation, our brain tries to find a relation between two sides. we relate numbers to numbers and shapes to shapes because each of them belongs to a different group. If you haven't been able to find the answer fast it means you have a rational brain. You are a logical thinker and you relay on facts in problem solving. In short the left side of your brain is more active than your right side... if you could figure it out fast, you are sort of visionary, you can be good artists, imaginative and as a result less rational! So the speed of solving the puzzle does not mean you are intelligent or stupid, it just means which side of your brain is more active!

took about 10 seconds for me to figure out what it was, answer is 2

I couldn't figure this out until thinking about preschoolers being able yo figure it out. Then I got it immediately!

0 is the answer

+Miodrag Stojilkovic I wouldn't be to ashamed as it really isn't related to math but is intended to give that impression to an educated person. However the comment of "pre-schoolers" being able to solve it quicker then all others should make most people identify it is based on what perceptions they would have for the answer, symbols(circles).

answer 2

how do you solve it?

3333= 4 ... broken hearts

Even steven :)

obviously 2.

I solve this in 3 min. How old am I? Who am I? Try to slove this problem :)))))

in !2! seconds

what's wrong with me then?.. took few seconds (the answer is 2, right?)...(former programmer btw)

I remember doing this exact puzzle once before, and yet it still took me twenty minutes.

it took my 2:30hrs ....... :(

yah it's 2

if........... 2581=???

then must understand the answer is 3 digits wether you subtract or adtion must 3 digits answer.........so my answer is posible:

2581-2400=181

Is it 2?

2+5=7-8=1+1=2 ..

I'm a programmer, didn't take me an hour. Say around 5 minutes. ;)

2581 = 2 is the number of circles in the numbers

how on earth did u get 2?

My formula.

2 is the answer

That was easy.

2 it is. xD

My 2 cents :

- We have to think "out of the box", not very easy unfortunately...

- Google+ is the right place for a puzzle about Circles ;-)

Well I am not smart but I am not blind either. I did not see the circles as the answer but once told it was circles I saw the answers. I did not need further explanation. So maybe that counts for something? lol

following the squence 5 should equal 25 BUT since 1= 5 then 5 must =1

10 seconds, 2.

Umm I then m it's 25 lol

Piece of cake!

The problem is topological rather than numerical...

2...........!

an 8 is made up of 2 circles

(programmer) I totally got this in 5 minutes by assigning the value to each digit and then adding those values together... but it wasn't until I looked at the comments that I realized the value was number of circles. I just saw that 0 = 1, 9 = 1, 6 = 1, 8 = 2 and solved. DOH!

2! is that mean I'm still pre-school child?#lol :)

i think it's 4! :)

+Antonela Haidar You and me both. According to the intro, I should have taken around an hour to work it out ;-) Then I saw the comment that answered it, and fun was over.

6 seconds... but i have the maturity of a pre-schooler

2!

6

2 - ive seen this before and it had to be dumbed down for me to get it.

2 (programmer) 3mins

9999 = 4 so from 8809 = 6 -> 8 needs to be 3, not 2

I meant 2 :P

It's the number of circles that can be colored in, like in an 8 for example the top and bottom can both be colored in, so that's 2.

count the circles in the numbers....

Such a pain.
