So I got one of those e-mails from a friend that get chain-forwarded. Ya you know what I am talking about. Basically the e-mail poised a puzzle to me claiming that only "people with an IQ over 130 are able to figure it out". It took me less than a minute to figure it out >.> (well two minutes if you count my dumb mathematical error; I shoulda used a calculator LOL!). Lets see how many dotTechies succeed:

If:

2 + 3 = 10
7 + 2 = 63
6 + 5 = 66
8 + 4 = 96

Then:

9 + 7 = ?

Yay! took me like 5 min though…. Frown

I thought it'd be like a riddle, but actually it's more like finding the pattern.
