Heard this a few days ago... didn't get it and thought it was dumb. That didn't keep me from telling others, though. Nobody got it, that made me feel better about not getting it. Then someone did, and I was shattered...... lol

This video makes it easy. I never heard anyone break it down and say it slowly like that.

Could be any amount of cows - operative word is "ate" as in 20 "ate" chickens.

30 cows minus 20 that "ate" chickens =10.

Just read it 20 minutes ago. And like most math problems,the teachers want you to show your work used in getting the answer - not just the answer.

Thought you were long gone.

Not true. It could be taken either way '28' or '20 ate'. Sort of like the cup is half empty thing.
