    Re: Weekend treats...

    h) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">There is either some "trick" I am missing or an error.

    1) the numbers add up to 71 so it is not divisible evenly in half.

    2) The puzzle could be to divide one of the 3 2-digit number in half making them 2 x 1 -digit numbers. Making a vertical line down between the 2 and 6 in 26 still is an odd number and gives 26 and 27 as the totals

    3) Assuming the "trick" is that all the 2 digit numbers are just "close together" and all represent single digits still totals 35 an odd number

    4) The only way I can get it to work (thugh it is unsatisfying) is to divide it so that the 5,9,26 are one one side and the 4,3,12,12 are on the other half and assume that the one half is 5,9,2,6 (not 26) = 22 and the other half is 4,3,1,2,12 (one is a 12 the other is a 1 and a 2) giving 22. I can see no real reason to think that one is a 12 and the other is a 1 and 2 other than to "solve the puzzle".

    Am I missing something??</span hide>

    <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15> Skip H) - I goofed...

    I hate it when that happens. The trick to the puzzle was to run a vertical line up through the 2 and 6 in 26. But I screwed up with one of the other numbers making the puzzle unsolvable. Sorry!

    All the other puzzles were solved correctly. I didn't think anyone would recall the line from <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Arthur</span hide>, so I'm awarding the big choccy bar to Tim. And smaller (but just as tasty) choccy bars to Hans and Tony for their quick work of A and D (the ones I thought were the most challenging.

    I feel just terrible for leaving Alan and Steve out of the choccy bar parade. If you'd just caught my mistake BEFORE I posted it... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Weekend treats...

    I figured that <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">splitting the 2 digit into 2 digits</span hide> was the trick, but I couldn't guess how. At least I was confused for a reason unrelated to my mistake and I can blame it yours <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thanks for the [choccy bar] <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    I <big>DEMAND</big> my chocolate bar... size XL in compensation. That's exactly the solution I had in mind when I asked the question, but the numbers didn't add up properly. I was even trying for a line that also sliced a <big>"1"</big> vertically, to give two little "1"s, to make the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> thing work. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>

    Weekend treats...

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Tricky on 15-Aug-05 01:25. Made a correction to puzzle H. Original was unsolvable but it is fixed now.)</P>Clarifying note (just in case the picture isn't clear) for puzzle A. This is a multiplication problem. Three digits multiplied by two digits equalling a 5-digit number. Only the first digit (4) for the top line is given. You are to use the remaining digits (0,1,2,3,5,6,7,8,9) to complete the puzzle...

    Have fun! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Okay. Alright.
    Here's your choccy bar. And I'm thinking you should share. BTW, the puzzle is fixed now if you'd like to pretend you haven't seen the solution and give it a go... <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
