I often receive riddles from people who think that since I compiled a bunch of riddles on my site, I must be able to solve them. While not entirely logical, the practice has made me better at solving them.

I received one the other day that stumped me. The email said in part, “My friend gave it to me. I couldn’t tell whether it was a brain teaser or a math problem.” There was nothing else to go on.

Here’s the riddle.

Eat flush to my nose tree times for they buy dead by too.

Any ideas? I later found out the answer, but if I gave it away you won’t have any fun guessing ;)

1. I could probably come up with some different answers, but is it 4?

2. It’s 14

Eight plus two(10) minus 3 (7), times four (28) divided by two (14) = 14
