BosGuy brain teaser

brain teaser, shirtless manEach Friday morning I post a riddle to get you to think outside the box and exercise your brain.  If you are stumped, share it with a friend or colleague and see if you can figure out the answer together. I’ll confirm answers in the afternoon so don’t worry if you don’t see your comment posted right away. I want to give everyone a chance to guess.

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.
