1. ## Four Quarts

1#

Make the following equation correct by replacing each letter with a numeral (0 through 9). Each letter can represent only one numeral, and each numeral can only be represented by one letter. There are no leading 0's. Since there are only nine different letters, one numeral will not be used. So as to produce only one possible solution, U is odd.

QUART + QUART + QUART + QUART = GALLON

2#

Here's a chance to show your skills in mathematical poesy. Convert the following equation into a limerick:

(12 + 144 + 20 + (3 x (4^.5)))/7 + 5 x 11 = (9 ^2) + 0

3#

Change MILE to INCH by changing one letter at a time. Each change must produce a valid word in the English language. But there is a catch. You must make the change by going through YARD and FOOT. No word can be used more than once.

MILE ----> YARD ----> FOOT ----> INCH

2. ## Re: Four Quarts

Nice try, Leif, but your change from word 10 to word 11 isn't valid. I assume you've omitted a word which, upon insertion, will provide a correct solution

1# What am I doing wrong?

<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">37524 + 37524 + 37524 + 37524 = 150096
79152 + 79152 + 79152 + 79152 = 316608
87524 + 87524 + 87524 + 87524 = 350096</span hide>

Absolutely nothing, Hans. My fault entirely, since being blessed with only a single brain, I am prone to fallibilty, unlike your good self, alias Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr.

8. ## Re: Four Quarts

Wonderful composition, Tony. Definitely on a par with the offerings of one William Topaz McGonagall. However, there is a more satisfactory solution, or in Hans' case, solutions to this one. It will be intersting to see what other loungers will offer. At the moment, you are definitely in the lead.

After a google search on William Topaz McGonagall I see you recognise my talent <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

But you can not forget Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings of Greenbridge (or Paul Neil Milne Johnstone of Redbridge as the master originally wrote)

Praise be to the Vogons! You've yet to descend to Paul/Paula's level but I'm sure it's only a matter of time. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

You be careful, some of us live in Redbridge!
