This riddle MUST be done in your head and NOT using pen and paper.

Take 1000.
And add 40 to it.
Now add another 1000.
Now add another 30.
Another 1000.
Now add 20.
Now add another 1000.
Now add 10.
What is the total?

Now Scroll Down ....

Did you get 5000? Seems most people do.
The answer actually is ...

4100. Don't believe it? Try it with your calculator.

Don't you feel like an idiot? Well... This has been done by MANY. The result always being the same...

Actually it's tricky only cause you have to calculate mentally and you can get easily confused if you don't concentrate http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif
