I did it in my head and got another answer, but maybe I looked at it wrong.

I initially posted the answer I got, but I edited that answer out in case it's correct (which I am pretty sure it is), so as not to spoil it for others as they participate.

I got 5000 the first time-but it definitely isn't!Theres a reason they don't want you to use pen and paper..

The first time I got another number. Then I saw that 5000 was wrong, which wasn't my number. I read Howler's response and then did it again - this time got 5000. THEN I got out the trusty calculator and as I was adding things up I spotted where folks might get tripped up - I did the second time. I was right the first time.

I didn't **** the other 1000 as it just said "Another 1000" but not to add to it, so my answer would be 4000.
I sure ain't no math whiz!

4100 ... I'm guessing it's just a mind trick, to move the 100 to 1000

I did see what Rooster saw (all on my lonesome, lol) and I thought a second possibility existed, albeit weak but, in the end, I'm settling on 4,000 as well.

Never mind... my mind was tricked (too easily (cry) )
The calculator exposed this bias...

Found the original site and this is what it says
The answer is 4100

Just use calculator (if any) or pencil and paper to solve it. You will get the right answer

4,100. The first step attempts to confuse you into thinking 1,040 is 1,400.
