# Solve this riddle :) watch

Well, this question doesn't require math at all and that's simple math so even if you're bad at math you'd be able to solve it wrongly in the way you stated. if 1=5, then 5=1. Didn't catch that with your 'good at maths' brain?
why are you so rude to me?

But the very first equation was 1=5, so 5 could equal both 1 and 25.

1 = 5, 2 = 10, 3 = 15, 4 = 20, 5 = ?
5 = 1
4. 5=1

A couple had just finished building their house, and because the night would be very cold they wanted to make a fire to keep warm. The wind outside was gusting at 50mph. After a few hours they were both dead! What had gone wrong?

Clues:
They had not been burnt to death
The house did not burn down
The house had not blown down
They were in minecraft, and the creepers killed them because it was night?...
6. The answer 5=1 is logically false. The symmetric property only works when a=b and b=a which is not the case here because 1≠5 and 5≠1. The correct wording would be U1=5 which then follows to give the conclusion U5=25
