    Another one.

    FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT
    OF YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC
    STUDY COMBINED WITH

    Very Tricky math! Note: This riddle must be done in your head only -- do NOT write it down.

    * Take 1000 and
    * add 40 to it.
    * Now add another 1000.
    * Now add 30.
    * Another 1000.
    * Now add 20.
    * Now add another 1000.
    * Now add 10.
    * What is the total?

    OK ... a tuff but silly one :D

    Problems in the Elevator: A person lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day he takes the elevator to go down to the ground floor to go out. When he returns he takes the elevator to the seventh floor and walks up the stairs to reach his apartment on the tenth floor. Only on rainy days does he take the elevator to the tenth floor. He hates the stairs, so why does he do it?

    4100, however the brain is usually tricked into making the 40+30+20+10 into a further 1000 totalling 5000

    In the upper drawing 4 pieces are laid together.

    In the lower drawing the same 4 pieces are laid together in a different way.

    So where is that white hole coming from?
