5. 5100 - and that took LONGER than 50 secs.
6. It is a good one to trick people with as the brain automatically add up teh smaller numbers not to 100 but to 1000 = try it in a group most people will say 5000 and since i was on teh thread earlier today about 2 nurses checking meds this is one of the best arguments for checking calculaations I know. It is not that we aer less than human in erring it is that we ARE human.

Omg...I keep getting 4100...what's wrong with me...I'm lost...I'm confused...
8. hmmmmm, mathmatically challenged? Just kidding, you are just not capturing all the numbers.

10. ACK!!! Too early in the morning for this! I'm going to the bar...
11. It is 4100.

The trick is that your head adds up those numbers that add to 100, but makes it 1,000, because that's what you see repeatedly.

Reason #298 to double check your dosage calculations with a calculator.
12. Hahaha, jokes on me, when calculator used is 4100!!!
