as-salamu'alaikum,

this is a simple addition test I'd like you to try please, without using a calculator, working from top to bottom without skipping any steps:



- First, add 40 to 1000

- Now add 1000

- Then add 30

- Add 1000 again

- Now add 20

- Add 1000 once more

- Lastly, Add 10




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



.. did you get 5000 ?



If so, you're wrong (most people seem to get it wrong with 5000),


- please check with a calculator !

salam,

the point is that most people arrive at 5000, although the true answer is very different, despite the test involving only simple addition.

When I first saw this around a year ago I got 5,000. Then I saw the silly mistake :)
