    Gone With The Wind

    1#
    It takes a cyclist three minutes to cover one kilometre with the wind in his back, and it takes him one minute longer to complete the return journey. Assuming he always exerts the same force on the pedals, how long will it take him to cycle one kilometre when there is no wind?

    2#
    ASTEROID=A
    BREAK=R
    CONVERT=N
    DENOTING=O
    EXPERT=P
    FINAGLE=?
    GYRATE=?

    3#
    VEXATION=16
    CIVILITY=158
    COCCYX=310
    PIXEL=61
    BIKINI=3
    LLAMA=?
    DIMMED=?

    Not what I have in mind, Tony. What's your logic?

    Re: Gone With The Wind

    I agreed with Tony's solution

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">first letter, second letter, third letter, fourth letter, third letter, second letter (I), first letter(G)</span hide>

    Oops. I wasn't sure about this one. My memory is certainly fading.

    Re: Gone With The Wind

    I can't fault your logic, Tony. There is another solution.

    2# Take 2
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">FINAGLE=G
    GYRATE=Y</span hide>

    Is this the same as yours or is there a third solution? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
