So as you all probably know you must answer a riddle to be let into the Ravenclaw Common room so I thought it would be fun to post some riddles here and see if anyone can guess the correct answer!

When is 99 more than 100? Ask for answer if needed! No cheating...


message 4: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) When it's in negatives?


message 5: by Tyler, Ravenclaw Mod (new)

Tyler Morrison (avengingwarrior) | 69 comments Mod
Nope, that’s a pretty good guess though.


message 6: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) umm I don't know. I'm not a true Ravenclaw, I cry.


message 7: by Bonita (new)

Bonita (bonitareads) In temperatures?

Still guessing! You all have had great answers, but keep on guessing.

On a microwave. 99 means 1:39 seconds, whereas 100 means one minute.


message 11: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) ohhhh


message 12: by Bonita (new)

Bonita (bonitareads) lol didn't think of that


message 13: by Bonita (new)

Bonita (bonitareads) It's shorter than the rest, but when you're happy, you raise it up like it's the best. What is it?


message 14: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) A thumbs up?


message 15: by Bonita (new)

Bonita (bonitareads) RIGHT 😄👍🏻


message 16: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) yaaaaay


message 17: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica What five letter word becomes shorter when you add two letters to it? 😊🤔


message 18: by Arthur (new)

Arthur Lopez (thequiettalkingkid) oooooh, I've heard this one before!


message 19: by Bonita (new)

Bonita (bonitareads) Shorter ?


message 20: by Grace , Head Mod (new)

Grace  Wright | 657 comments Mod
Short


message 21: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica Yup😁


message 22: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica 11 take away 1 is equal to 10.
But 9 take away 1 is also equal to 10.
How is this possible? 🤓🤔


message 23: by Tyler, Ravenclaw Mod (new)

Tyler Morrison (avengingwarrior) | 69 comments Mod
Could it be that 9 happens to be a negative number? So, -9-1=-10?


message 24: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica Oh sherbet!
So so sorry!
Ummm.... not a bad thought, but unfortunately that is not the correct answer.
If you'd like a hint, let me know.

(11) base 10 -(1) base 10= 1*10^1+ 1*10^0-1*10^0=11-1=10

(9) base 10-(1) base 10= 8=> 10 base 8=1*8^1+0*8^0=8


message 26: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica Nope.
But wow, that is some deep thinking.


message 27: by lumi (new)

lumi (lumoss) it is possible in roman numbers;
XI (take away the I and it will become X//ten)
IX (take away the I and it will also become X)


message 28: by Bibliogothica (new)

Bibliogothica And we have a winner! :D

On of the most famous riddels...Why is a Raven like a Writing desk?

“Because it can produce a few notes, though they are very flat; and it is never put with the wrong end in front! The early issues of the revision spell "never" as "nevar", ie "raven" with the wrong end in front.”
Lewis Carroll describe it that way. I’m using a direct quote from the author.

Yep! Another acceptable answer would have been that they both have "legs" and "feet".
