Draw two lines as shown
A + D is obviously equal to C
D and B are corresponding angles in right triangles with a base double the height, therfore D = B
therefore A + B = C

  :mitch:   :Hammys pint:


6 x 5 X (6 -5) = 30
(6 - 5) =1 so the above becomes 6 x 5 x 1 or 30

P.S. There are other answers to this puzzle as well.

A poor woman and a rich woman are talking about music.

The poor woman says she has studied music and can name a song with any name in it.

The rich woman says "OK, if you can find a song with my son's name in it, I will give you a thousand dollars. His name is Panteleimon-Rigas."

The poor woman gives her answer and is instantly $1.000 richer.

What was her answer?

roughly translated to English   
 In Greek the meaning of the name Panteleimon is: Merciful.
Rigas  from a medieval Greek personal name, meaning 'king',

 'Merciful King' by Robbie Seay Band a Christian rock group

Pete! WOW!!!

I admired your reasoning!!!!!  :goodie:

But my aim was not to teach you Greek! I just chose a difficult name, not connected with any known song!!! I could not imagine that there was a possibility for anyone to find a song with ... Panteleimon-Rigas!!! BRAVO!!!!  :dance:

Anyway, Merciful King is not the answer! I'm taking back Panteleimon-Rigas, and instead, I give you ... Marcello-Tzavarellino.

1. Take your shoe number.
2. Multiply by 5.
3. Add 50.
4. Multiply by 20.
5. Add 1015.
6. Substract your birthday year.

What is the answer?? Let's see as many answers as we can!!!   :D

Well, I think that you should check again. There is a mistake in your results.  :)

The ''miracle'' of this trick is that if you perform correctly the equations, you get a number where you can see the number of your shoe and your age.  :D

The question is: why?  ;)

Because both your shoe size and the year of your birth are included in the data.
The rest is just there to confuse the unwary.
