    Re: Sum the Sentence!

    Since Jezza's answer for 3 agrees with what I had, and what I had (but never posted) agreed with his answer for number 1, let me try a couple more...
    4) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">3</span hide>
    5) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">2</span hide>

    Re: Sum the Sentence!

    I'll try a couple more...I don't think I'll even have a guess for the last two...I thought a couple of days away from this might help me see the answers, but I don't think it did.

    7) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">2</span hide>
    9) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">68</span hide>

    Re: Sum the Sentence!

    Be kind with me when you answer this question!!!

    Could I find out what was wrong with this puzzle, as the responses were not what I expected? I thought that most loungers have a passion for mathematics, and thought this one might go down as quite a good puzzle. I am wondering what was wrong with the puzzle. There is no ambiguous answers in this one and if you read the sentences closely enough the math equations should be easy to spot.

    Please pass me your comments so that any puzzles I post in the future might be more to your liking!

    PS: Typed in the most sincere and appreciative attitude available and delivered to an audience that is well respected and revered! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Sum the Sentence!

    Appreciate that last post Rudi. Personally, I just couldn't see anything at all with this puzzle- NOTHING jumped out at me & I couldn't figure out where to even start.

    I know I'm not the greatest puzzle-solver in the world, but I usually have some idea of what to do... <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Re: Sum the Sentence!

    Thanx Lyra! The puzzle works more on the "pronounciation" of the words, the seeking of hidden values and some cryptic clues! All of these should calculate to a value which represents the answer to the sentence. For example...one that is already answered correctly:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Janine! Simply mark your choice with an X across all 4 pages. = Janine X 4 = 36 (ie - 9 * 4 = 36)</span hide>
    The example at the beginning of the puzzle:
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Before (4) you tire and (+) surrender to (2) this puzzle, I
    Regards,
