If you find the answer to be 12, then the answer is wrong. This riddle does look a little bit tricky to solve, doesn’t it? Well, all you need to focus on is the perception of the question. As you can see, there are no signs given at the end of the first and the second line- which implies that the two numbers are to be taken as 11. Now, if you simply put it in a single sentence, you will find the correct answer.
