    Re: Three tricky questions!

    Q2 and Q3 are correct!

    Lyra, just out of interest; How did you get to that answer?

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Technically (though I suppose that is the "puzzle" there is no number: "eleven thousand eleven hundred and eleven"

    That number would properly be called: "twelve thousand one hundred eleven"

    One does not ask about the number(eg) "twenty eleven" to refer to "thirty-one", it would more likely be a "shorthand" of two thousand eleven"</span hide>

    Re: Three tricky questions!

    I'd hoped to trick ya in that! If you don't think of it you'd tend to write it as <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">11,111</span hide> witout thinking! Obviously <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">11,111 / 3 <>4037!</span hide>

    Can't see the problem. I use <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">"twenty eleven"</span hide> all the time in my base-29 calculations. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
