An old man wants a job, but the boss won’t hire him until he passes a little math test.
“Here is your first question,” the boss says. “Without using numbers, represent the number nine.”
“Without numbers?” the old man asks. “That’s easy.” And he proceeds to draw three trees.
“What is this?” asks the boss.
“You don’t have a brain? Tree plus tree plus tree makes nine,” says the old man.
“Fair enough,” says the boss. “Here is your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99.”
The old man stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree, and hands it back.
The boss scratches his head and says, “How on earth does that represent 99?”
“Each of the trees is dirty now. So it’s dirty tree plus dirty tree plus dirty tree. It’s 99.”
“Okay, last question,” says the boss. “Again, the same rules, but represent the number 100.”
The old man stares into space again. Then he picks up the picture, makes a little mark at the base of each tree, and hands it back.
The boss looks at the picture. “You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!”
The old man leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and whispers, “A little dog came along and did his business by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, plus dirty tree and a turd, plus dirty tree and a turd, which makes 100.”
