    A Triple

    1) What is so special about 1, 2 , 145 and 40,585 (hard)
    2) Insert the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 into the grid below so that all the rows and colums add up to the same.(medium)

    <table border=1><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td><td>x</td></table>

    3) Using a maximum of three symbols from your keyboard how many radians are there in a circle (easy <img src=/S/hmmn.gif border=0 alt=hmmn width=15 height=15>)

    Too late. I peeked. I had number 3 ready...but he's already answered it. Number one would have had me occupied for a little while

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>I've devised a shoe/knee/armpit mirror system...undetectable. That way we can help each other

    Re: A Triple

    To be honest, I have a copy of "The Penguin Dictionary of Curious and Interesting Numbers" by David Wells (bought in Taunton, Somerset in 1986)
