BosGuy brain teaser

brain teaserEach Friday morning I post a riddle or brain teaser.  The idea is to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain. Share with friends or coworkers if you cannot figure out the answer and together perhaps you can determine the answer.

Post your answers in the comments section, and I’ll confirm the correct responses after lunch to give everyone a fair chance.

This week’s riddle:  After teaching class about roman numerals (X = 10, IX=9 and so on) the teacher asked the class to draw a single continuous line and turn IX into 6. The only stipulation was the pen could not be lifted from the paper until the line was complete.

  4. Just draw an S in front of the IX.

  5. Start at lower right of the X and scribble out the bottom half, then scribble out the I…then trace the V of the top half of the X and insert a new I at the end.
