Three numbers, 16, 14 and 38, need to be assigned to one of the rows of numbers below. Where do the numbers belong? (Hint: This is not a mathematical problem. The numerical values are irrelevant)
The rows indicate the shape of the number. Row A is rounded, B is mixed and C is linear. Thus, 16 belongs in row B, 14 in row C and 38 in row A.
This is an unusual paragraph. I'm curious as to
just how quickly you can find out what is so unusual
about it. It looks so ordinary and plain that you
would think nothing was wrong with it. In fact,
nothing is wrong with it! It is highly unusual though.
Study it and think about it, but you still may not
find anything odd. But if you work at it a bit, you
might find out. Try to do so without any coaching.
The letter e is the most common letter in the English language, yet it never appears in the entire paragraph
What is the next number in this series?
1, 2, 6, 42, 1806?
To get the next number,
multiply the previous number in the series by itself plus one: n *
(n+1). For example, to get 6, multiply 2 * 2+1. To get 42 multiply 6 *
Thus, 1806 * 1807 = 3263442
