My first question on Puzzling.SE, I don't think it should be too hard.

Take a bowl and add one.
Now add seven.
At last mix it all together and bake it at 270 degrees.

What will you get?

I think the answer is


Because the riddle bakes down to

0 (bowl) + 1 + 7 = 8 which, when rotated 270 degrees, looks like $\infty$

  • $\begingroup$ Correct :) It is an easy riddle but i like it $\endgroup$ – Cryol Aug 10 '15 at 13:43
  • $\begingroup$ Why do you consider the bowl to be 0? $\endgroup$ – Jashaszun Aug 10 '15 at 16:47
  • $\begingroup$ @Jashaszun - I just looked at this puzzle and immediately knew that the bowl was zero. It is the circular shape of the bowl together with 'add one' that made me think of zero plus one. $\endgroup$ – chasly from UK Aug 10 '15 at 22:05
  • $\begingroup$ @chaslyfromUK That was exactly my thought process, too. $\endgroup$ – Engineer Toast Aug 10 '15 at 22:19
