Ruthann Caudill I have contacted Wave 105 and have asked them to clarify. They wrote back that The Answer is on YouTube.....The firm that created that video used a brain teaser and answered it their way. They then stated that there was only one answer. Brain teasers are meant to create different approaches. That is why is it a BRAIN TEASER and NOT THE ANSWER.

Duncan Brannan It's not a brain teaser. It's just a math problem where basic rules of math must be applied.

Ruthann Caudill Which basic math rules? Please clarify. Three lines without signs after the lines are not answerable. The entire "math problem" with one answer is impossible.
The whole problem can be written correctly on one line with the correct symbols that make it an equation.
These three lines are ambiguous and that is why so many people are answering it in so many different ways.
Math is always the same and if it is always the same should offer one answer.
If people do not know how to correctly get THE answer that is different. Stating that the last 1 from the first line really is part of an 11 coupled with the 1 on the next line and that those next 1's also make an 11 constitutes a trick question. This is causing many incorrect teaching and learning when we need math to help solve many problems in this world.
In short these three lines are incorrect math and teaching incorrect concepts.

Ruthann Caudill There is no THE ANSWER. This has started many fights and promoted hostility. This is not teaching nor is it helpful. When I got onto the YouTube site of the firm that originally put this BRAIN TEASER on YouTube, I saw that they made the video and cl...See More

Ruthann Caudill Any answer could have used these symbols after the first two lines: plus, minus, less than or equal to, greater than or equal to, square, infinity. There are other signs that could have been used. Nothing was used and so the three lines are ambiguous and unanswerable as written.

Wave 105 Ok...where's a maths teacher when you need one!? We thought it was 1 as the sum adds up to 30 (who noticed the cheeky 11's?) and when you times by nothing that means nothing then add the 1. Thanks for playing anyway....whatever the answer is!

This also has been picked up by other people and posted on their FB sites. Many people have been misinformed. I have asked Wave 105 to remove this post and that is is causing harm.
They have not.
remove the harmful post and try to repair the damage that has been caused.
