Welcome to the GGMTs -- the Googolplex Grey Matter Tests. I'm your host and test administrator ... Hugh Googol!

As you can see, your noggin is comprised of four distinct chambers, each responsible for a different school subject. Those of us with massive melons house additional chambers providing us with the gifts of charm and fashion sense.

Upon completion of this 20-question exercise, we'll present you with a total score that's more than just a number. It's a career guide. After you take the GGMTs, we'll tell you your future, no matter how bright or dim it may be.

Your first test deals with the world of numbers. You have 15 minutes to complete this section of the GGMTs. If you need to enter a letter in an answer, be sure to use capital letters. Click the timer below, brainy one, and begin.


M1) Hugh Googol Jr. wears only green or blue socks, and he has 6 pair of each color in his top drawer. Unfortunately Hugh Jr. is not tall enough, and every morning must reach into the drawer without looking. What is the smallest number of socks Hugh Jr. can grab and be sure that he has a matching pair of green or blue socks?
Enter a number of socks below:

 

M2) What is the next number in this series? O3 T3 T5 F4 F4 S3 S5 E5 N4 ___
(Did you remember to use a capital letter?)

 

M3) Assume there are 300 million people in the US. For each person, take the number of fingers (including thumbs) each has on his or her left hand, and multiply it by the number of fingers on the next person's left hand. Famous television/internet personality Hugh Googol has 5 fingers on his left hand. Hugh's Uncle Floogle has 3 fingers (he had an accident). President Bush has 5 left-hand fingers. So far, you have 5 (Hugh) x 3 (Floogle) x 5 (George Bush) for a total of 75. If you continued this multiplication for all 300 million people in the US, what would the final total number be?

 

M4) Add this column of numbers, one at a time:

1000
20
1030
1000
1030
