How many balls?

How many balls can you see in the picture?

We all love riddles and training our brains, and it’s a good choice. Are you ready to wake up and face this puzzle?

Here comes the challenge. It’s not proper math, but I remember our geometry teacher gave us a similar problem back in school. This may seem easy at first but you will quickly realize it is not as easy as it looks.

Below is a picture – and the question is: how many balls are in it?

How many did you find? The answer will be below the next picture.

The answer is revealed below but don’t cheat by peeking!




There are a lot of balls

It is important to think a little outside the box to figure this one out.

The correct answer is 30 balls!

First, discern between visible balls, and balls making up that pile.

Visible: 16, that’s rather easy.

Full pile: we have a 4×4 bottom layer, then 3×3, 2×2, 1×1.

16 + 9 + 4 + 1 = 30 in my book.

Anyone disagrees?

Did you get the correct answer? Congratulations to you if that’s the case, you are sharp!
