    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.

    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. ;)

    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.
