    True. I found this a bit more problematic than I should have done. However, my eyesight is failing et al.

    I initially had it at one less and I believe it it is the third row of missing bricks on the left hole that causes the problem <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    When you specified "quickly" I thought you were prompting for some quick counting method. I started by looking at the width of the missing 2 at top left, then tried to let my eyes compare each missing "row" to this datum. Got the same as Jezza - much faster than I could have by trying to count "singles" I think.
