# Thread: A Triple

1. ## 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>)

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)

Mine bought in Bromley, Kent (circa) 2004 <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>Lucky as apparently a lot of David Wells is out of print now
