I'm a Genius. Are you?
« on: September 07, 2016, 07:44:52 AM »
So a friend at work posed this question to us.  Apparently you need a high IQ to figure this out.  I got it pretty quick, and some people were impressed.  That being said, I don't think the problem requires genius intellect.  They probably would have figured it out as well if given enough time.  Anyways, here is the problem...

7+6=113
8+5=313
9+2=711

What's the pattern?  Can you figure it out?

The logic fails continues.   :2funny:

there's no pattern...the person performing the math problems just don't know how to add.

oh wait, there is?  it's the secret combo to the lottery!!

disregard the first number of the value you'll have the total of the addition.

If I didn't know the answer, how could I know that you are wrong?   :idiot2:

I never said I was a genius.   ::)

if you agree with the math problems, prove it.

All I got is: there is a negative (-) and a positive (+)to the answer, and they take turns so, it's a two part answer? It's just logic and has nothing to do with being smart ;D

It is just a logic question.  That is why I said I don't believe it takes a genius to figure it out.  It is probably just advertised as a genius question for kicks.

There are a few patterns depending on how you look at it.  It involves both math and logic, but I don't think a person needs to be a genius to figure out the patterns.

OH, that's easy.

It's not a logic problem, it's a pattern problem.

I went through all 15k posts and those 2 quotes I found were the only ones so I guess that would make it "everytime".  Feel free to go through all 15k posts and verify by quoting them all.  You need to quote them all to verifying prove "everytime".   Please verify that Im wrong.

It's a logic problem.  It might be difficult for you.  :2funny:

I still can't figure out why 7+6=113?!?! :idiot2:

someone please explain, so I can go to sleep, I've been up all day all night, since this thread!

1st set digit = subtraction
2nd set of digits = addition

And I implicitly used set since the numbers will increase in value.

Am i right?

There is actually a part 2 to the question. 

If you can figure out the pattern, then solve...
? + ?? =123

1st set digit = subtraction
2nd set of digits = addition

And I implicitly used set since the numbers will increase in value.

Am i right?

12 and 11 ?

12-11 = 1
12+11= 23
12+11= 123

There are only two parts or patterns.  ???  I calculated more when I first saw this.
