# A sum of images

## 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 = ?

The answer can be given as either an image or a description of the image.

• it's not '36' perchance? – JMP Apr 28 '16 at 9:49
• @JonMarkPerry Haha no, the numbers represent the images in this case. – Wu33o Apr 28 '16 at 9:52

Each image refers to

a band that has a number in its name:

1. Alabama 3
2. 22 Jacks (per @WeslySitu)
3. Jackson 5
4. Matchbox 20.
5. 21 Pilots
6. 30 Seconds to Mars
7. Sum 41
8. UB40 (this is the coat of arms of the University of Barcelona) (per @WesleySitu)

The sum of numbers 1 to 8 is

182. This means that the answer is the band Blink 182, and an appropriate image for the solution might be:

• barcelona has a song called "drop everything". maybe the result is 0 :D – Pat G Apr 28 '16 at 10:58
• Coincidentally, there is a band called Alabama 3 as well. (It doesn't change your answer though). – hexomino Apr 28 '16 at 11:09
• I don't think it is the answer for #8, but (U)niversity of (B)arcelona = UB40? – APrough Apr 28 '16 at 11:45
• I'm going to guess that the addition result is 182. Which leaves 58 unaccounted for so far. – Chris Cudmore Apr 28 '16 at 13:28
• If you swap 2 with "22 Jacks" and 8 with "UB40" (@LiamH, @APrough), we get the +58 we need for rot13 oyvax 182 :) – Wesley Situ Apr 29 '16 at 3:23

I have decided to add a separate answer because its a long shot. So I don't want to ruin the other answer.

Maybe its:

an image of the 212 area of NYC
1. Alabama, have an album called 16 biggest hits
2. This could be an image of Jack Black. Tenacious D have a song called 39
3. Michael Jackson - Jackson 5
4. Matchbox 20
5. Twenty One pilots
6. 30 seconds to mars
7. Sum 41
8. UB.40
The total sum here is 212, which is the debut single by Azelia Banks. It seems a Long shot with 1 and 2 I know!

• Nice try, but not the right answer – Wu33o Apr 28 '16 at 16:20
• Ah well, worth a try! Good puzzle! – LiamH Apr 28 '16 at 16:21
