Please look at the math below. (Only people with an IQ of 130 and over
are able to figure this out):

If: 2 + 3 = 10
and 7 + 2 = 63
and 6 + 5 = 66
and 8 + 4 = 96,
then what
is 9 + 7 = ????

I have been smarter than graders 1 through 4 so why should the fifth be different...

Hey I can run that grader. They are kind of fun. not as fun as a track loader or scraper.

True dat. Any earth moving equipment can be fun for those of us that are still kids at heart. Big boys Tonka toys.

Well I'm glad to see how bright everyone is.

Just in case anyone was not seeing the missing piece of the equation it's…
Add the two numbers then multiply by the first number.
A + B {x A} = C
ie 2+3 {x2} = 10

Class dismissed
