    Maths

    Here's a simple bit of maths to get your brain working in the morning.

    Do this in your head (believe me, you wont need a calculator).

    1,000 + 40 + 1,000 + 30 + 1,000 + 20 + 1,000 + 10 = ?

    Did we all get to 5,000?

    Now have a go on a calculator.

    err 4100? 40 plus 30 plus 20 plus 10 equals 100.

    But i do see what you mean

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Smart @rse. Do the sum in the order it's written.

    Ask some bean counters to do it reading it out as it's written. Not many people have got it right in my office this morning.

    The 'trick' is that when you get up to 100 with the smaller numbers a lot of people accidentally add on another 1000 as well.

    I'm still rounding people up to get enough fingers and toes to get the starting 1000...never mind even thinking of adding on...

    1000+40+1000+30+1000+20+1000+10 = (1000+1000+1000+1000) +(40+30+20+10)
    (1000+1000+1000+1000) + (40+30+20+10) = (4000) + (100)

    Did fool me the first time tho.
