    Five 3's & More

    A. Five 3s can express 37: 37 = 33 + 3 +3/3. There are at least two other ways to do it, can you come up with one?

    B. Use four 9s to make 20.

    C. Express 20 by using the digits 1, 3, 5 & 7 three times each. (That's 1,1,1,3,3,3,5,5,5,7,7& 7)

    Even though you solved all the puzzles correctly, I'm only going to give you a score of 92%. That's an A-. Why? Because you didn't solve them in alphabetical order! <img src=/S/cranky.gif border=0 alt=cranky width=18 height=25>
