Hey everyone, This question will go on until 12/25/2013.

## Previous Solution

I believe the answer is not 16, it is 25. But why?!?!?!

Okay, let's start off by analyzing 1 + 4 = 9. We see that (sqrt)1 + (sqrt)4 = (sqrt)9, right? Making 1 + 2 = 3.

Now, what is 4 + 9? (sqrt)4 + (sqrt)9 = n^2, meaning 2 + 3 = 5^2 = 25. Only Blueeighthnote got it correct. Nice try to those who answered.

## The Question of the Day - 25 points

According to the traditional song, on the first day of Christmas (25th December), my true love sent to me:

. A partridge in a pair tree

On the second day of Christmas (26th December), my true love sent to me:

. Two turtle doves . A partridge in a pear tree

On the third day of Christmas (27th December and so on) my true love sent to me:

. Three French hens . Two turtle doves . A partridge in a pear tree

This carries on until the the twelfth day of Christmas, when my true love sends me:

Twelve drummers drumming Eleven pipers piping Ten lords a-leaping Nine ladies dancing Eight maids a-milking Seven swans a-swimming Six geese a-laying Five gold rings Four calling birds Three French hens Two turtle doves A partridge in a pear tree

After the twelve days of Christmas are over, how many presents has my true love sent me altogether?
