### Hard Math Riddle

Hard Math Riddle - 14 September

Take 9 from 6, 10 from 9, 50 from 40 and leave 6.

How Come ??

1. No Clue :(
Whats the ans

1. at the end it says leave 6, 10-9=1 50-40=10. so the answer must be really close, or it. 27-9=18 18 is the answer.

2. 10 from 9 would be -1 dumb ass

3. funny u
but really dump ass...

4. He said 10 from 9 would be 1!

2. Use Roman number :)
I love ur puzzles specially

3. Hardest Math Riddle

4. Tougest Math Riddle

1. 10-9=1
9-6=3
50-40=10
10-1+3=6

2. It clearly says to take it FROM it.

3. I guess you get the answer

:p

5. SIX – 9 (IX) = S
9 (IX) – 10 (X) = I
40 (XL) – 50 (L) = X
===>SIX

1. That's ingenious! I never thought to do that!

2. wow!!

very clever of u dude!!

3. realy very difficult..

4. very clever..

5. Great of you man HATS OFF

6. good yar....in this maths people won,t work!!!

7. This comment has been removed by the author.

8. what an idea, sirji!!

9. I still dnt undastnd

10. umm chris sutton i guess you can't count

6-9=-3
9-10=-1
40-50=-10

that's -14.

What was it again? If you're going to post something know the answer please?

11. person above me, 9-6 is 3 not 6-9, 10-9 is 1 not 9-10 and 50-40 is 10 not 40-50

12. Wooow! Nice!

13. To the anonymous who stated, "person above me, 9-6 is 3 not 6-9, 10-9 is 1 not 9-10 and 50-40 is 10 not 40-50. If you're going to post something know the answer please"...

In math word problems, if you are taking 9 FROM 6, it would be 6-9. Also the same goes for the rest; 9-10 and 40-50.
It's not a big deal at all, it's just a confusion with words, it's very tricky.

14. good Thinking. But How About This The 6 Is Negative It Never Said What 6 It Was Look

6-9=-3
9-10=-1
40-50=-10
-3+-1=4
Now 10 And 4
-10+4=-6
-6

15. Person above me : -3+-1 does not equal 4, it equals -4, please know your math

6. Why the first six is in english and not in roman.????

1. (take 9 from 6)because he wrote out SIX. 9 in roman numerals is IX. take the IX from SIX and you are left with S. (take 10 from 9)we already know that 9 is IX. ten is just X. take the X from IX and you are left with I. (take 40 from 50) 40 in roman numerals is XL. 50 in roman numerals is just L. take the L from XL and you are left with X. put S, I, X together and you are left with 6

2. wow ...really great!!incredible thinking hats off....!!!!!

7. wow!that puzzle is incredible.............i lloovvee it...

8. kkeerreeennn boooo.... teka-tekinya... ^.^
mantaff...

9. I dont get it :( please explain

10. its roman number :-)

6 SIX – 9 (IX) = S
9 (IX) – 10 (X) = I
40 (XL) – 50 (L) = X
===>SIX

1. why six is not in roman

2. That is truly awesome! You need an extremely intellectual brain to find that out. VERY WELL DONE!!!

11. 9-6= -3 10-9= -1 and 40-50= 10. if u add them all together u get 6

1. you cant do that because 40-50 is NEGATIVE 10.

2. done correctly, this amounts to -6 which is very close :)

3. yet, -4-(-10)=6

4. wow seriously guys? -4-(-10)?

why not

-3-(-1)-(-10) = -3+1+10 = 8?

12. ok i need somebody to explain this in dumb form for me because i understand but i dont

13. write 6 in capitals like this SIX, then, the roman numerals for 9 is IX, when you write 6 out in capitals it makes it so you can do the sum and the answer is S
like this: SIX-IX=S
then for 9-10, you just have to all of your equation in roman numerals like this: IX-X=I
then for 40-50 you do the same as the second last one like this: XL-L=X
so if you write it out all together you should end up writing the word SIX in the answer column like this:
SIX - X = S
IX - X = I
XL - L = X

1. :O fantastic

2. hello, hw about wat will i add on 9 to get 6??

14. i thought it was because there are six circles in the numbers and then i used roman numerals :P

15. Still makes no sense that you would spell out the first one and spell out no others, why isnt 6 equal to VI versus SIX... In that case, 9 could be NINE or IX. I get the result, but it still makes no sense the first arbitrarily follows a different set of rules than the others.

1. You should see to just answer MAN
Dont find faults ........
See his trick THATs
JUST AMAZING.....

17. okay take 9 way from six, hey you would be left with -3. then you take ten from nine guess what not going to happen -1 so -1 plus - 3 = -4 all together now. now take 40-50= 10 so now 10-4= six.
Just a guess

1. 40-50 is 10! Amazing! Everyone, we've figured it out! It's NOT NEGATIVE 10, but 10!

18. wow....
he person who made this riddle is sooooooooooooooo awesome!

1. yes really all right :)

19. you just really really hate 6. he's never done you any good, and he won't in a million years. i mean, yeah, you're not really committed either, and you guess all that name calling behind your back is kind-of maybe deserved. but hey, you can't help it. you see something you like, you'll go for it. 9, 10, 50, they were worth it. i mean sure, their girlfriends, 6 (the other one), 9, and 40 were mad. you can get 6 and 40, but really, 9? her and 10 didn't have ANy chemistry at all. besides, they can't blame you for doing what they were too scared to.

anyways, 6, the dude 6. he's the one who actually thinks he's got more control over you. you were always leaving a trail of naive, broken hearts behind every real number you were with, but this one? dare you say it, he's the one who actually tried to gain control over YOU. just the sheer nerve makes you shudder with anger and annoyance. of course, you had to get him back twice as hard, and you did. what a shame. he was pretty cute, after all.

20. ost difficult to solve

21. 9 from 6 is -3, 10 from 9 is -1, 50 from 40 is 10. -4 & 10 leaves you with 6. :^) I love math!

1. 50 from 40 is NEGATIVE 10 and -10 + -4 = -14 not 6

2. Being so clever KILLS
MR
or
MRS Chantel
Dont just be overconfident......

22. Don't play with me =-8

23. The correct answer is ; 8-
Or 8 - negative
8 negative.
you can't say 8 .
Since all werh subtracting more than whole number values.

24. 9-6=3
10-9=1
50-40=10
3+1=4
10-4=6

25. 6-9=-3, 9-10=-1, 50-40=10......-3+(-1)+10= 6

26. I think I couldnt figure it out because "50 from 40" is what originally was written ;)

27. por favor

28. Evaluate the expression right to left, considering the operands right associative (except operand take which has highest priority):

Take 9 from 6: left with -3.
Take 10 from 9: left with -1.

Right associativity, evaluate what we have so far: left so far: -4.

Take 50 from 40: left with -10.

Right associativity: take -4 from -10: (-4) - (-10) = -4 + 10 = 6

29. SIX – 9 (IX) = S
9 (IX) – 10 (X) = I
40 (XL) – 50 (L) = X
===>SIX

30. great buddy......really impressed

31. It's 6 the puzzel says to leave 6...

32. Now I undastnd ...........................

33. the answer is: because 9-6=3 10-9=1 50-40=10

so 10-3=7 and 7-1=6

34. SIX – 9 (IX) = S
9 (IX) – 10 (X) = I
40 (XL) – 50 (L) = X
===>SIX

35. 6-9=-3
10-9=1 which could be reverted with drunken science so it's -1 which makes a total of -4
60-50-4 leaves 6
Drunken science all the way

1. Oh wait, it was 10 from 9 which means it was -1 after all. So I was right anyway

2. Drunken science was applied to the 50 from 40 though

36. 6-9= -3
9-10= -1
40-50= -10
-10-(-3)
=10-3

=7-1
=6

37. SIX - IX = S
+ IX - X = I
+ XL - L = X

S+I+X = SIX

38. one question need not have one answer...good dude

39. This question fails, as the initial "6" does not follow the other guidelines.

SIX does not equal 6
VI equals 6 in roman numerals
VI - IX would be the first equation, which does not map out using the intended convention.

Witty.. but completely thought out improperly.

40. *CONFUSED DONKEY*

41. question is very intresting

42. SIX-IX= S
IX-X= I
XL-L= X

join all the answers and you will get SIX

43. I'm just fida yaar....

44. Whacking your brains with this quesstion is a sure cure for migraine.

45. Go to the north cause the fire isnt there it wil go towards east. Then when he goes to the north he should climb down not jump down. He might have lots of time because it is raining hard since theres a lightning and also the fire wont go straight to the north and it also will have a hard time go south or north since the wind is blowing form the west

46. dude.a dummy person has more question then a clever persn..if u implant a numbr n word.who wuld figure that out..i called tht a dummy question

47. bunk though he should have spelled SIX who could solve it that way?

48. 9-6= -3 10-9= -1 and 40-50= 10. if u add them all together u get 6

49. 2,9,39,161,..............., what is next number?

50. Take 9 from 6, -> 6
10 from 9, -> 9
50 from 40 -> 40
leave 6 -> 49

51. Because everybody hates 6, he doesn't get ANYTHING done, and is an overall moron.

52. If you take 9 away from 6=-3
If you take 10 from 9=-1
If you take 50 from 40=-10

3+1=4+the extra 6=10
