Basically, each number is a "text" variable.

"...Reminds me of a puzzle I read not long ago:<br /><br />"Which of these verbs is not like the others? bring, buy, catch, draw, fight, find, teach, think"<br /><br />When I read "catch, fight" I thought of "catch fish" -- which led me to notice that "think" was the only verb that couldn't take a concrete direct object (you can bring a fish, you can buy a fish, you can catch a fish, you can draw a fish, you can fight a fish, you can find a fish, you can teach a fish to swim, but you can't think a fish). But that wasn't the answer on the next page.Chris Hennickhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/03639445454370696616noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9864092.post-9399769178625083222012-08-01T16:58:42.929-07:002012-08-01T16:58:42.929-07:00Ten seconds.

I...I used logic to get my answer in under a minute. I decided that if preschool children got the answer quickly, it couldn't have anything to do with math ... patterns, or counting, or calculating. So, I thought like a child and figured out to look for the "circles." I'm definitely an overthinker, but I'm also highly logical, which helped me in this problem.Cindyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11452795238901796924noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-9864092.post-28497609374949802482012-04-30T20:47:21.994-07:002012-04-30T20:47:21.994-07:00Same method as you... in under a minute.
