    Puzzle

    Keep that brain working; try to figure this one out...

    See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common?

    1. Banana
    2. Dresser
    3. Grammar
    4. Potato
    5. Revive
    6. Uneven
    7. Assess




    Give it another try....?




    Look at each word carefully.




    No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters....




    Answer is below!





    Answer:

    In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word. Did you figure it out?
    Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
    It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
    And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

    Blond phones her husband at work very upset and crying
    "I bought a puzzle with over 2000 pieces and I battle to build it, please come home urgently"

    "Is there a picture on the box?" the husband asks

    "Yes, with a chicken on, but I don't come right, it's too difficult." she replies.

    Husband decides to keep the peace and go home and help his wife,
    As he got home he found his wife in tears, " You see it's too difficult for me to build alone"

    Husband looks at his wife and says:" Lovey, put the Kellogg Cornflakes back in the box and I will go make you some tea"

    IF:
    2 + 3 = 10
    7 + 2 = 63
    6 + 5 = 66
    8 + 4 = 96

    Then:
    9 + 7 = ?

    Spot on, you have an analytical mind (maybe a little absent-minded though LOL)! ( If 9+7 = 144, then 7+9 = 112 )

    Now try this one .....

    1, 2, 6, 42, 1806, ?

    3263442 is correct.

    Here's an easy one for most guys .... Mike, maybe you can sit this one out unless no-one gets it.

    (Oh, I know "Google' is your friend guys, but try figure it out on your own! )

    1 3 5 7 11 ?

    13 Prime number is correct. Well done! Sort of a trick question in a way because most folk will be looking for a mathematical pattern and not even consider prime numbers.
