The correct answer to “**how many 9s are between 1 and 100**” is: **TWENTY** (20)

As many riddles in our website, the answer is little bit tricky. At first you may think that the right answer is nine, and there’s only nine nine’s between one and hundred , because each ten of numbers only includes one entry that has a 9 in the ones-place.

But that is not the right answer, to answer this riddle you should look a little further though. All ones-place 9s count here, but so do all the tens-place 9s. Here is a list of every 9 that appears between 1 and 100:

- 9 => First nine
- 19 => Second nine
- 29 => Third nine
- 39 => 4th nine
- 49 => 5th nine
- 59 => 6th nine
- 69 => 7th nine
- 79 => 8th nine
- 89 => 9th nine
- 90 => 10th nine
- 91 => 11th nine
- 92 => 12th nine
- 93 => 13th nine
- 94 => 14th nine
- 95 => 15th nine
- 96 => 16th nine
- 97 => 17th nine
- 98 => 18th nine
- 99 => 20th nine [ there are two 9s here ]

As you can see in, There are 18 numbers that have one “9” in them, but there is an other number that has two 9s in it which is 99. Therefore, you have 18 (single 9s) plus 2 (double 9) for a total of 20 (Twenty).
