This viral math question has two solutions.
There are two correct ways to solve it. The first way to find the solution is to add the equation, then combine the sum with that of the previous equation. The second solution involves multiplying the second number of the equation by the number you are adding to it. The correct answer could either be 40 or 96.
Your experience may vary, that is one of the phrases often used on the site that introduced me to internet adult entertainment and reviews of said entertainers, including my former self. What works for one person may not for another. Common sense really, but common sense isn’t so common. You think you know what to expect but really you don’t–then you berate yourself for not expecting the unexpected. I had a client who often presented me with problems like the one I included above. He liked to listen to me speak my thinking process aloud (for the above problem I got 40 a couple of different ways, but never 96). When I reached the correct conclusion, when I spoke the number “40” he was in ecstasy. “You are so…so…smart,” he would whisper. And he was mightily pleased. Never missed.
With magic like that, I believed I had found a surefire way to appeal to men. I offered to write book reports while they observed, I suggested they listen to me counting backwards by three’s, I even brought out different versions of the questions that had that particular client agog. Any time you want, I would say with all sincerity, I will solve these problems for you, and then some. How do you like me now?
And you know what? As wildly successful as the i.q. flaunting was in that particular instance, not one other person has ever asked to watch me do any sort of academic work as a sensual act–or even foreplay. Go figure!
