### Re: What is 7+9?

Since 7 8 9, then just use 8 + 8, which is 16.  Cool huh.

### Re: What is 7+9?

But the question makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.

What exactly does 'if 7 8 9' mean if this was not actually a riddle? Some form of a sequence or progression? This could actually go deeper than we thought. 16 is the first obvious answer that must (yes, it must) spring to mind. Maybe there is something else behind it?

...well, not likely.

What can you possibly loose by eating that you wanted in the first place?

Huh? This must explain why you can't divide by zero or find the square root of negative numbers. WE HAVE A HOLE IN OUR MATHS!!!

8 ate 8 though, so it cancels out....I'm leaning towards no s0lution.
