Well, Eric clearly got an A in math class! What does it say about me that I broke down to use the PC calculator?

Eyewitness said...

Math has always been a problem for me but still want to try:
Triple eight.

Eyewitness said...

Tabor, You are not alone , I have also used the PC calculator.

Jingle said...

Simply want to have fun,
please feel free to copy, use calculator, or ask for help from someone nearby...the trick is to express it in TWO WORDS.


*winks*...

welcome to my world of poetry said...

With the help of the calculator I got three eights.


Thanks for your visit, you said I was awarded some awards and left a site which I tried to log into but was told it didn't exist.
I followed it to the letter severel times but to no avail.

Yvonne,

I am so confused as to do this trick
I know if I had a calculator will make it stick
But do not have one to count on Now
As to let you answer this is allowed
Please tell me if it is as easy as you say
Then I can feel better as you answered this for me today

enjoy Jingle and Happy Monday to you as well(+)

That was fun. It took me a few seconds to get the two word thing, but the first commenter and then a few others have it right on, and there are even more than one answer. Good stuff.

cool one jingle.

Lorraine said...

triple eights....although for a while I debated whether you were playing with words and meaning
3 add 2
as 32...to mix us up...

Lorraine said...

actually that should be triple eight...right?

Crystal Mary said...

MATH TRICK!
(2 words to describe it! lol)

Eternally Distracted said...

Eric is obviously the cleverest!... My calculator came in handy too ;)

buffalodick said...

I got the right answer in my head!

Heff said...

EIGHTS THRICE !

Jingle said...

Excellent job,
I am thrilled that you have tried this...

Yes, you can say:

triple As'
Triple 8s',
Sounds Great...

Happy Tuesday to You.

infinate eights

H said...

I'm a bit late, but three eights.

Roger Owen Green said...

thrice infinity

OK, it's sideways, but I fear thrice 8 or three 8 would bring one to the conclusion it's 24. Triple eight would work for me, too.
