nope, there's only 1.

and don't think multiplication. Don't think of it as h times a. ha is a 2 digit number, as is oh.

Every adult in my family that I've shown it to didn't get the answer because they were thinking too hard. It's not algebra.

That makes sense. Still, if you multiply h and a, there will be a lot of answers that would be equal to o times h.

it's not multiplying though.

it's so simple it's hard.

it's so simple it's hard.

I see. Tricking people to think that ha is two numbers multiplied and not thinking of it as a two digit number. Very clever.

yep!

It's so easy that when you think about it (after taking algebra), it suddenly becomes difficult!

I figured it out this morning, but just didn't have time to post it! Anyway, there are still other possibilities, but this one is the only one in which they are all natural numbers. You could use fractions:

h=2

a=0.5

o=8

(there are others as well)

They could all just be 0s:

h=0

a=0

o=0

or it could be:

h=0

a=5

o=2

Anyway, this:

h=2

a=3

o=9

is the most logical answer.

h=2

a=0.5

o=8

You might know this but it took me AGES to figure out. So you need to find the next line in this sequence:

1

11

21

1211

111221

312211

13112221

1113213211

31131211131221

13211311123113112211

11131221133112132113212221

3113112221232112111312211312113211

1321132132111213122112311311222113111221131221

Can you figure it out??

1

11

21

1211

111221

312211

13112221

1113213211

31131211131221

13211311123113112211

11131221133112132113212221

3113112221232112111312211312113211

1321132132111213122112311311222113111221131221

Can you figure it out??

Aha! No one can beat the almighty power of this puzzle.....i'll give you the next line if it will help!

lol it's so obvious but i couldn't guess i had to be told what it was.....it's nothing really that can be worked out. I know it doesn't make sense but it is top!!

i meant is is really good, thats what it is top means! lol.

Ok so you just describe what you see on the line above.

so if there is 1 it's one 1 you write 11

then there are two 1's so it's 21

you can go on forever doing this!

*stares openmouthed* WOW! That's so cool!

So the next line would be:

11131221131211131231121113112221121321132132211331222113112211?

So the next line would be:

11131221131211131231121113112221121321132132211331222113112211?

Yeah!

I never guessed when i was first told, when i found out i was like wow! It's so easy its hard lol.

Are you from America??

hi i am back...

ummm

try this one

10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 20, 22, 24, 31, 100, 121.....

find next number

ummm

message 1:by [deleted user] (new)ha + ha + ha + ha = oh

what is h?

a?

o?
