# A teensy bit of easy fun!

What is wrong with this statement?

Clarification: "What is wrong with this statement?" is the statement.

The reason I didn't make this a problem, is I couldn't find a way to put the answer, that wouldn't give it away! This is a very easy problem, but I'm hoping it stumps 1 or 2 of you.

Note: This question is part of the book "The Mysterious Benedict Society" which is a good read.

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Like it says above it's to do with logic... that might give you a clue.
