274 – Tuesday = 9

This is a strange mathematical problem. Maybe you are confusing and think that equation is impossible. Let’s see what this comes from:
Here goes the story, or… a joke.

There were three mentally retarded men taken to the psychic for test. On reach the doctor’s office they were put in a line answer some questions so that to determine who has reason than the others. The firs person was asked 3*3 ( 3 times 3) ? Ask the doctor. 274 answered the first person. Huh !! Shouted the doctor. Then 2nd man was a the same question, he replied three times three equals to Tuesday. Oh lord ! The Dr shouted. Given a look to third person who is smiling, the kind of smile that can tell u a confidence. I belief u can’t be like others, said the doctor, God willing I’ll make the difference clear go ahead with your question said the third man. The doctor him asked him 3*3, the answered 9 immediately with smile and confident. That’s correct ! with happiness replied the doctor. But how do u get to that ? ask the doctor. The man said is very simple just minus 274 from Tuesday is equal to 9.

So , now we got three conclusion.

  • First, those three men are really mentally retarded.
  • Second, the third one got the right answer from a wrong way.
  • Third, the EQ of the doctor is not high enough to deal with those men. 😆

And we also got one question.

  • Why and how can he make it?!!!

—————————-Thinking Time———————————————————-

Maybe you have thought it from a long time and gotten some clues.

  • First, 274 is not two hundred and seventy four. It stands for three number, two, seven, and four.
  • Second, the third man can’t tell the difference between Tuesday and Thursday because they are quite similar
  • Third, Thursday stands for the number, 4

Then this mathematical problem is solved. 2, 7 ,4 three numbers, pick up the “4”. Remaining 2 and 7 that make a sum is 9. 😎

That is only my inference. Maybe it’s only a simple joke. But I think maybe my explanation will make it more enjoyable.
