9999=4 8888=8 1919=? Numerical Counting Puzzle



Now there is a puzzle, which will shake you:
9999=4
8888=8
1816=3
1212=0
1919=?
Solve the puzzle.


Solution:
The puzzle needs you to calculate the number of circles in the numbers.

For instance - 9 has one circle in it. And then 8 has 2

Hence see as below:
9999=4 (each 9 has 1 circle)
8888=8 (each 8 has 2 circles so 2 x 4 = 8)
1816=3 (8 has one circle and 6 has 1 so 2)
1212=0 (no circles in 1 & 2)
Hence, 1919=2 ( 2 circles of the number 9)


I have also seen another solution. THough not a clean one, but still the logic doesnot smells so foul:
See, sum of 9999 is equal to 4. Therefore, each 9 is equivalent to 1.
See 1212 is equal to 0. So 1 and 2 are equivalent to 0.
Therefore, 1919 is (0+1+0+1), so it is equivalent to 2.
