Testing yourself with different quizzes and puzzles never gets old, it’s always fun to overcome a challenge and exercise your competitive instinct.

Especially when you get a little older, it is also important to keep your brain sharp and in good shape. In fact, it is just as important as keeping your body fit, in order to live a long and happy life.

Regardless of whether you do sudoku, crosswords or simple math problems, it always feels like your mind is a little clearer afterward.

In recent years, I’ve been drawn more towards math problems. Maybe it’s because it reminds me of the good ‘ol times when I went to school, and I think it’s important to check how much you actually remember from back then.

Correct answer

The correct answer is A: 61.

Why is that?

Well, first of all, we have to start by solving the multiplication, 60 x 0, which will be 0.

So this leaves us with 60 + 0 + 1 and so, it becomes quite easy to see that the correct answer is 61.

But if you forget you must always start with the multiplication, then it gets tricky!
