    Re: Circle Puzzle

    Care to explain so those of us who *can't* work backwards from your answer to see how you got it can figure it out? <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30>

    And if it's correct, quite a fine job.... <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    If you insist - <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Each circle has a number in the centre of it. That number is the count of how many other numbers appear in that particular circle</span hide>
