A Math Puzzle

Instinct versus LogicThis is a busy week. I still have a lot to do tonight and I’m tired so this will be a very short post.

Last week I read in Business Insider a neat math question. As you read the puzzle, your instinct will cry out one answer but if you pause and think about it, you will come up with hopefully the correct answer.

To get to the post, use this link.

This example shows that sometimes your instinct will lead you astray. However, what is it they say for you to do when taking multiple choice tests? Don’t they say go with your first instinct?

Hmmmm, how does this math puzzle fit in?
