** As there are 63 passengers on the train now, 17 who boarded the train have to be subtracted from 63 and the result is 46. Now add 19 who got off the train to 46 and the result will be 65, which is also the solution to the problem.**

## #1 The Confusion

This problem was posted on Twitter by Louise Bloxham and confused many, as it was written that 46 is the answer while in reality, 46 is the answer of the first portion only.

This was noted by Metro, "People said that the 19 was a red herring, which doesn't make sense, or that the train was empty to begin with, which doesn't make sense. It even says there are 'some people' on the train."
