    Wow! Good work, Hans. ...I knew Q4 would go in short order but I thought Q3 would keep anyone busy for a while. Unless you have the same book I do, then color me <font color=blue>impressed</font color=blue>. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Q3 isn't that hard: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Left hand triangle has sides 4 and 4, right hand triangle has sides 4 and 6. Use these ratios to get equation (4-s) + (6-1.5s) = s from which s = 20/7.</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Weekend Treats

    Claude - That's not what I got...

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>The formula for converting F to C is:
    F = (9/5)C + 32 To find where they're the same, just set F and C equal to one another...so
    C = (9/5)C + 32 Or
    C - 32 = (9/5)C And
    -32 = (4/5)C then finally,
    -40 = C</font color=yellow></span hi>

    Re: Weekend Treats

    <img src=/S/doh.gif border=0 alt=doh width=15 height=15>, pasted the wrong number AND missed Bruce's answer. I blame the flu medicine on this one <img src=/S/notmyfault.gif border=0 alt=notmyfault width=15 height=15>, and the fingers, and the eyes, and everyone else. <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> So there <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: Weekend Treats

    Q2 not very easy at all. A quick attempt shows 10 possible first letters, 5 possibles for second place, then 9, 4, 4, 11, 12. This gave a total of 950,400 possibilities to check. I resorted to an anagram solver to find <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Ostlers</font color=yellow></span hi>.

    <table border=1><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>O</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>S</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>T</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>L</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>E</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>R</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>S</font color=yellow></span hi></td></tr><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>A</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>O</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>A</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>E</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>R</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>O</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>O</font color=yellow></span hi></td></tr><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>R</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>Y</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>N</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>D</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>E</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>T</font color=yellow></span hi></td><td><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>W</font color=yellow></span hi></td></tr></table>

    Re: Weekend Treats

    Wow Stuart, you've discovered an alternate solution! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I wasn't familiar with the word <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>"ere</font color=yellow></span hi>. But I looked it up and it is a word. There is another solution that uses 7 common words ...

    Re: Weekend Treats

    ... so where's that clue you promised us? My anagram solver is between my ears, and this one is driving me mad!
