Brain Teaser

Hi everyone! It’s Monday once again and I am here today not to give you funny photos or quotes or videos. I just want to break out a little of the usual thing. Today, I wanted to share a brain teaser that I found from this site which I think is amazing. Warning: number multiplication ahead :) It’s a brain teaser so let us exercise our brain nerves just for 3 minutes or less. Shall we?


Just follow these instructions, and answer the questions one at a time.

Now, arrow down (but not too fast, you might miss something).

Think of a number from 1 to 10.

Multiply that number by 9.


If the number is a 2-digit number, add the digits together.

Now subtract 5.

Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you ended up with (example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c, etc.)

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter in the name of that country.

Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter.










Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?

If not, you’re among the 2% of the population whose minds are different enough to think of something else. 98% of people will answer with kangaroos in Denmark when given this exercise.

Did that make you think? Did you do it again? Have you realize anything? Love to hear your thoughts, reply below :)

    Thanks for the laugh this morning. I am of the 2%. The math helped a little in waking me up. I am dragging this morning.

    Have a great week.

      oh really? that’s cool. I am one of the 98%. I googled first the countries that starts with Letter D. Oh girl, I even tried to compute it again and was amazed with this phenomenon ;)
