    Don't use paper and pen or calculator.

    take 1000 and add 40 to it.
    now add another 1000.
    now add 30.
    add another 1000.
    now add 20.
    now add another 1000.
    now add 10.
    what is your total?

    did you get 5000.
    your answer is wrong.
    the correct answer is

    >>> 4100

    I went over that 4 times in my head before using a calculator and it got me everytime! :rolleyes:
