It seems like quite an easy equation, so why does no-one know the answer?

The infuriating riddle has been shared over 1,300 times since it was posted

online four days ago.

It has also received hundreds of comments from confused users, one wrote: “The

question is too ambiguous and needs refining, that is the answer.”

While many more gave what they thought was the correct answer, some said two,

four and seven.

Reason: So far d fishes are in the tank, so none can swim away nor drown. The total number of the present fish will be the initial number, which is 10

@faniyi idris, we understand but let’s assume dat dey can swim,die and drown inside d tank

@ iloputa….a tank is an enclosed container, if dey can swim, dey wil swim, drown and die inside the tank, and d number remains the same

Correct guy

Fishes can die in a tank, due to natural reasons, since they are inside the water lets assume they drowned, but the fact we need to know is that they are dead, this is not a language test but mathematics

10-2-3-4=1

7 is left….

7

7 is left since its in a tank, they can t get drowned or swim away instead they can only die, so 3 out of 10 died. Totalling 7 remaining!

But those 3 are still in the tank

Yea u re ryt

Dey might be in d tank bt dat does nt stp dem frm dying

Since is inside a tank they cant swim away, and fish dnt drawn in water also even if any dies, they all will be inside the tank, so dat means 10 fishes are left in the tank****😅😅😅😂😄😁😅 pls reply me if am wrong and also shw me the peeson that wins the card

ure crrct..7 z d ryt ans.buh were d card

So the ones that died aren’t fishes any longer?

If 2 drown dre re still inside the tank, 3 died dre re still inside the tank and 1 is still inside the tank alive. So is 6 fishes.

Fishes don’t drown in water,der r in d tank so der can’t swim away,so der r still inside,jus swimming around,might be possible 3 died.. Nd since it ten,one is missing.. Practically, der r 6 fishes left.

10 fish still remain because they’re still in the same tank

This question is somehow. Your calculations means the remaining one alive is not included. So therefore the 10 fishes r still inside d tank.

http://homecash.online/?ref=132830

First, fish cant drown so the 2 fishes are still intact, and secondly its a tank so they cant swim away..so its only 3 that died which mean its 7 that is remaining and the whole 10 is still in the tank because the 3 dead ones still count

1

10

10 remaining

7

I don’t know jus reading comments ✔

All the fishes remain in tank…. it’s a simple IQ question .. does tank have an escape route?? My question to those writing something else … the answer must be 10 and will always be 10 in as much there is no escape route for fish to swim out

judging by the statement, it’s 6 but 1 is missing cos 4 swam away, 2 drowned and 3 die totalling 9 so 6 + or – 1 not mentioned

7

THE ANSWER IS 6

Remaining 7

10 Fishes

Amen

7

1 fish will be left since 9 random mishaps happens to all 9 fish and in the question ten fish instead of fishes,so I think 1 is the answer

None of the fish got away because they all are in a tank 10 still remain#lobatan

10

what is d ans…GistReel Entertainment….show all full working…

10

2 drown in the same tank 4 swim away within the same tank 3 die but have not been removed from the tank 1 is still alive in the same tank We still have 10

6 i guess

6 fishes left!

Six ooooooo

No way a fish can drawn nor die in a river or even swims away from inside a tank. So, 10-0-0-0 = 10

a fish cant get drowned which makes it +2 and is a tank so d fish cant swim away which makes it +4 and since dey did not say d number of life fishes,dey just said how many will remain so we count both d dead one and d life one together which makes it +3.so we say 1+2+3+4=10 so d answer is 10

10 is remaining

5

10 they are all still in the water… and how can a fish drown??

Dey can drown, still d answer is ten coz dey don’t ask about d life one

Since the question has nothing to do with life, I think the correct answer to that question should be the initial number which is 10

1 fish is left to be counted, remember the question is not how many of the fishes left in the tank

1

3

10 fish, They drawn, they are in!, They die, they are in!, They swim away, the tank has no exit hence still in, Then the remaining one! All fish are in

10 cause Fish don’t drown either swim away since they are in thank

0

10

I didn’t even have to think hard before giving an answer and its very sad the answer people are giving.

10 cas dea all in da same tank

10

10 dey still inside de tank

Still 10 because even though they die they are still in the tank and a fish in a tank can’t run away and if they drown, it’s in the tank nowhere to go.

There are still 10 fish,cuz none left the tank

7

10 fishes

10

7 is left because only 3 died

None was left, because none exist.

10

total number of fishes are 10.fishes don’t drown,they inside a tank,so it can’t swim away,if some fishes die it will still remain in the tank.therefore 10 fishes are left

10

3 fishes Can fishes drown in water

The answer is 10 fish.

1

7

So, what is the correct answer? It’s 10. But how has it been worked out? Firstly, fish don’t drown, not in the conventional sense anyway. Secondly, if they are all in a tank, the fish cannot swim out of it or escape. And thirdly, if three have died, they would be floating at the top of the tank. Which means all 10 would still be in the tank. And our winner is Faniyi Idris Opeyemi… Kindly contact us to claim your airtime… More freebies coming soon.

It’s 10

Truly 10 is the answer to proof–2/10+4/10+3/10+1/10 take the lcm and multiply. 2+4+3+1/10=20+40+30+10/10=1000/10===10 he is right

The long and short of the story is that 7 are still in the tank

10 nani

D ans is 10…cause dey are still in d water .d dead fish is in d water. D one dat swam away are still in d tank and can fish even drown

7 remains

Hey is 5

There are 3 left

The correct answer is 7 fishes. Fishes in the tank can’t swim away, neither can they drown because water is their natural habitat, they can only die. So if 3 out of 10 fishes die, 7 are still intact.
