You are asking a math question. A riddle is an ancient teaching game first thought to be used by romans. Riddles are supposed to be logical when answered, and usually involves misguidince by playing on words. Such as:

A box with no hinges, edges or sides, yet a golden treasure is hidden inside. What am I?

A true riddle teaches one to think around corners, and look at objects in new and unique ways. They are not only a test of intelligence, but a test of creativeness, and vision.

The answer to this particular riddle is an egg. The clues saying it is a box with no edges, hinges or sides are pretty straight foward, the final clue is a play on words, and ment to throw people off the right track. the golden treasure is the yellow yolk.
