Let’s face it, we all love a puzzle and you don’t have to look too far on the internet to find one that will arouse your interest.
The latest online puzzle to catch people’s imagination is a set of simple bars, laid next to each other but the puzzle is to count how many there are.
It sounds easy enough doesn’t it?
However, if you count the ends from the left you will find there are eight but if you count from the right the number of bars is reduced to just seven.
The reason for this has left us flummoxed with many other internet users feeling the same way and even boffins have been left scratching their heads.
We are sure that there will be some of you out there who can offer the explanation.
