Please enjoy today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game Think Thursday challenge, and good luck:

The year 2013 is a special one, since the total of the first three digits equals the fourth: 2+0+1 = 3. This last happened in 2002 (2+0+0 = 2). With this in mind:

When is the next year this "trick" will occur (after 2013), and when was the last time it occurred prior to 2002? Here are the ANSWERS.

THE ANSWERS: This "trick" won't happen again until 2024 (2+0+2 = 4) and last happened prior to 2002 in 1809 (1+8+0 = 9).

Thanks for playing, and have a great day!
