    If it's over 1,000,000, then surely it's...OVER 9,000!!!

    Someone had to.

    I'll take a guess & say two million.

    I'm a little bothered by the fact that this wasn't actually a riddle.

    i too would be embarrassed posting memes over a year old.

    and tijs: i knew 2**30 is ~1e9 because 2**30 bytes is a gigabyte.

    I like math riddles. I have not done one is a very long time. I think it dates back when i was in high school. My approach to solving them is to take each sentence and break it down. Make an equation out of the sentence. Get rid of any information that is not important. And then do the math and solve it.

    We can assume for this math riddle it was a 30 day month or could it be a 31 day month.
