But in fact 6 and 4 are the answers because the top half would look like "VI" and the bottom half would resemble something like "ΛI" or "IV" if looked at upside down.

And in my book (and pretty sure everybody else's book), "IV" is 4, not 6.

Maybe I just can't properly interpret what I really wanted to say, okay, as I previously said,the two "VIII" symbols or 8 are just mirror images that faces one another and nothing more.The images represents the philosophical aspect only ( call it a practical fool's division method) since 13 cannot be divided equally by 8, what if I draw a horizontal line in the middle?

How should I put it? In some cases this kind of solution increases a person's creativity skills and not their mathematical skills,by finding a solution way beyond the information a book offers to a person.

Put it in this situation: In puzzle solving,give at least three ways to divide 13 equally in half. Then this is one of the methods.

Anyway,this concludes my post regarding this topic, how about you? any good stories or topics to share? ^_^

I'm taking a break on forums again,well got to go! (Oh,that was a nice short friendly chat/debate mate! ^_^)
