What quiz?

We used to have a great one on CM, because everyone googles it was the fastest answer who won the point.
There used to be about 8 or 10 of us competing some weeks. Usually the one with the brains who could type the fastest scored the most points
Obviously I never won. Sad

Well you see you probably won't know about it because Ben is the only one who does it so he can be top of the leader board.
He finds my wisdom and knowledge, a threat.

Ahh...a secret quiz, where clever people are not invited.
No wonder I had not heard of it.

Yes Syl I will think of my first question for you and we will have it here. Seeing as that's what we've been reduced to. Sad

OK...I am ready.

Just a slight disclaimer in case I don't know the answer.
I have seriously done something to my right hand typing finger ( luckily the left digit is still working) so there may be a long gap between the question being asked and me answering it.

if we take the unknown number you are thing of and call it "X" the clearly 3 times that number is 3X

we shall call this number Y

clearly then X = 1/3 Y

so the number you are thinking of is indeed 1/3 Y

and 3 times X (your original number) is Y

Those answers are both right for reasons too intellectual for me to pursue.

The answer to yours is simply this: Because. I am a walrus. afro
