So here I am minding my own business in my office last week, when Sam's two awesome daughters show up to our work in the afternoon after school, and little did I know at the time, I was about to be made to feel very dumb by an someone who had just turned 8 years old. NOW in my defense I have never said I was good at riddles, or trick questions, so when Sam's 8 year old daughter asked me the question I knew I was in trouble. After about 30 mins of trying to figure it out I just gave up, so here is the question...

You can write ONE line in this equation to make it correct... 4 + 5 + 5 = 450

See.... All you have to do is draw that one little line to make the PLUS sign into a FOUR and then the equation is correct 445 + 5 = 450

I felt so ridiculously dumb when I was trying to answer it, and Sam's daughters got a reallllll good laugh at my expense as they watched me struggle to figure out what line I needed to draw and where to put the line to make it work. My first guess was to just draw a line through the equal sign so it would read four plus five plus five does not equal four hundred and fifty but they said that was cheating. So how did you do on the trick question?

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
