well, overnight brought a few more 6's , 7's and 5's. Tons of ones and the newest trend is 3.5.
The station will not be posting the answer until 6:30 om tonight EST. I certainly will post it here.
There are almost 5,000 responses on the page. And just incase he is right, DS was the first person to say 6.
What kind of radio station is doing this and stating they will reveal the answer? This isn't like a "What color did we dye the new interns hair?" Where you need to reveal the answer, this is a fairly simple math question that a lot of people get wrong because they don't understand PEMDAS, either because they are bad at math, or because they were taught wrong.
I still don't see what they are gaining from this, revealing the answer will either show them to be stupid, or force them to call a portion of their listening audience math imbeciles. Neither of these is a good idea.
I wasn't aware there had to be a point or somethng to gain. Maybe they are gaining fans due to the high number of responses. Maybe it's just fun. There is no requirement to guess.
I find it interesting that there are many different responses and there are several posts stating to people that they are dead wrong for each answer.
I have listened to the station long enough that I am quite sure they will post the answer and the reason for it.
So, if you want to stick around for the answer, what they say will be posted this evening.
BTW, I must have missed your answer, can you share it?
