What do the four numbers 1, 2, 6 and 10 have in common that no other numbers do?

I dunno, what do you reckon..

BTW this IS a serious question posed to me...

The ONLY answer some1 else came up with was LC multiples. (120)...but this was obviously wrong.3,5,10,12 spoil his answer.

Any guesses?

Simple enough, they're all three letter words.

Here's another one.

Where are these sums correct?: 11+2=1, 9+4=1

Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?

6, and will have one butt left over.

From the 25, he makes 5 cigars which he smokes, giving him 5 butts.

From the 5 butts, he makes a cigar, which he smokes, giving him a butt.

on a 4-bit machine using two's complement. A signed variable holding a binary value greater than 8 is negative. Add the 4 or 2, and you get 1 using two's complement. I think, you might get -1, I'm not sure... :)

they each belong to the set {1, 2, 6, 10}
