    Hi guys!
    I am going to make a little question for you and win a text based rpg game (c++)
    i made my own. At least this is what i can give freely!
    All you need to answer is a simple question:

    1+1=

    Rules:
    All participators have only 1 chance of posting the result
    All have only 1 week to post the result since this thread started
    The first person who answered correctly wins the prize
    The price is given at the end of the week,
    since this thread started
    Edited posts will be taken out of consideration
    If none finds out the result, the price wont be given
    I will bump every day, for a right competition
    Googling is allowed :)
    I will reply at the end of the week, [referation thread]
    Have fun!

    Warning: Even if there is a winner, if he/she edits the post, the prize wont be given

    I made a program to work this out.
    The answer is 27e^-15.
    My programming skills are flawless.

    1+1=10

    You never specified a number base.

    1+1= depends.

    One raindrop + One raindrop = One bigger raindrop
    One man + One woman = 1, 2, 3, 4, and in some cases 24 or more kids
    One matter + One antimatter = 0
    One MRCL + One Frick = One lovely honeymoon.
     
    Frick says thanks.

    The answer could be varied. In simple math, 2.

    Other possibilities:
    1 Jr plus 1 cpu core = sad. 1 LOL cat + 1 caption = funny.

    One matter + One antimatter = photons and energy.
    Sorry, I couldn't help it.

    Nice intention, but you've blown the whole competition by saying the first correct answer to a trivial question wins: the competition is over before its even started, with the first reply by Derek12. :shadedshu It makes all the other entries pointless.

    If you want to know how to structure a competition, take a look at my MW3 competition for a good example.

    It's a good idea to offer something more appealing than a simple text based adventure. Who plays those nowadays?

    Finally, it's spelled "prize", not "price". This is basic stuff.

    Yeah a bare 1+1 has many correct answers besides mine :laugh:, he should indicate the context of that sum :)

    because if not, then should say "the user who first replied to this thread will win the prize" :)

    if you go by Boolean Operations then 1+1 = 1 (1 AND 1 = 1)

    That would be binary. This would be my choice as an answer as well since this is a computer tech forum and all.

    Too obvious to be true/correct, but here we go:
    1+1=2 :D:D
