I am a pretty big number:

Here are a few challenges for you:

  1. Add a line to make me a millennium.

  2. Add a line to make me a millennium and ten.

  3. Add a line to make me a century and one.

  4. Add a line to make me a time.

  5. Add a line to make me lunch.

  6. Add a squiggle to make me the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Note that a straight line is meant by “line”, and also, none of these parts are related to each other (ie. always add the line/squiggle to the original image).

  1. Add a line to make me a millennium.

    Add a horizontal line before the third 1. 1010 - 10 = 1000

  2. Add a line to make me a millennium and ten.

    Cross the third 1. 1010 + 0 = 1010

  3. Add a line to make me a century and one.

    Add a slash before the third 1. 1010/10 = 101

  4. Add a line to make me a time.

    Incorrect Guess :( Either a slash, or a dash depending on how you prefer dates. 10/1010 or 1010-10 (October 1010)
    From @Deusovi: Add a line above the second 1 to make it a T. 10TO10 (10 minutes to 10)

  5. Add a line to make me lunch.

    Strikethrough the entire line to make a kebob. . 101010 .

  6. Add a squiggle to make me the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

    Add the subscript 2 to make it binary. $101010_2$

    $\begingroup$ Wow!!! Almost all of them. Just not the one I was thinking about for number 4 :) $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Mar 28 '16 at 11:50

    $\begingroup$ I'm thinking more along the lines of a time as in 12pm, etc. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Mar 28 '16 at 12:23

    $\begingroup$ Add a line to the top for #4: "10TO10". $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Mar 28 '16 at 12:28
  • $\begingroup$ Correct. Nicely done - I was surprised anyone would get the kebab one so quickly. $\endgroup$ – Shuri2060 Mar 28 '16 at 12:37
  • $\begingroup$ @QuestionAsker The kebab one was the only one i got, reading this question. $\endgroup$ – Scimonster Mar 28 '16 at 18:13
