    What do the question marks logically represent in the diagram below?

    Re: Redundant

    I feel that a clues are required, so for those who are interested:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The title of the puzzle is relevant</span hide>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The diagram represents a calculator display</span hide>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> The numbers in the segments represent a two-digit number</span hide>

    Get solving!

    Re: Redundant

    Not so, Hans!

    Another hint:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The 2-digit number in each segment is a sum</span hide>
    <font color=blue><font face="Script MT Bold"><big>Rob</big></font face=script></font color=blue>

    Thanks <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    It's a nice puzzle, but I would never have found the solution without the hints. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Re: Redundant

    Rob? I'm looking at the clues, the solution (and that big choccy!) and still I'm a bit befuddled... <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20> Can you shed some light for those of us (maybe just me) that just ain't gettin' it? <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>
