Pay attention to the backround.

There's also the word 'word' repeating all over, this is a very important clue. By now you know the answer is not 3. :wink:

Oh dear Numb3rs,

Will you have a headache from hitting yourself after you solved it. The answer is right there, just read the title.

The puzzle is as simple as number 36 with the negative greetings. It's just not possible to give a hint without giving the answer as well. One just has to see it.

I still remember my pain when I finally solved these "easy" ones after staring at them for what seemed like eternity.

Garf, I disagree. While on 'negative greetings' you literally have to see it, on #18 you just have to realize what they're asking.

And #18...very dumb.

It's really pretty simple. First you have to manipulate the image file to get a secret message, then you have to crack the triple combination code to get the English text, find the corresponding letter-number and then crack that code. Then you'll have to do some serious research. (You'll probably have to find the Moscow Newspaper Archive, hope that's not too much of a hint.) Decode the message you find hidden in there, then run a complex google search. Don't worry, the link you're looking for is in the first seven pages of links, you'll know when you find it, and the resulting puzzle can be easily solved by anyone with even the most basic knowledge of quantum physics and ornithological anatomy.

...no just kidding, :wink: it just takes a little bit of outside-the-box thinking.

It requires in-the-box thinking in fact.

Really, you're overcomplicating it. There's a word in front of you. It's hard to say more without just spelling out the answer.

If you want to solve the puzzle, you should spell out the answer.

Well, from the answers you're putting in, it's obvious that you're thinking too much. Way too much. On most of the puzzles in Dumb, it's better to think a lot. But not on this one.
The background doesn't matter. The fact that "WORD" is repeated however many zillion times doesn't matter. The fact that it says "4+9" instead of "24-11" or "√169" doesn't matter. The level number doesn't matter. The difficulty rating doesn't matter. The fact that the image name is "puzzle015.jpg" even though it's puzzle #18 doesn't matter.
All you need is the result of that equation (and surely you know how to get it) and the word.
That'll probably seem a bit spoilerish to people who've already solved it, but I don't think it's really a giveaway.

Yep. That's the way this game is. Some of the answers are pretty dumb.
