Postby take_a_pop » Sat Jan 21, 2006 9:56 pm

Here is one i was tested with today,
Take these 4 numbers...9.9.9.and 9, now using all 4 numbers by adding,dividing, multiplying, or subtracting, turn them into exactly 100.
Matron gave me an extra toddy for solving this one.
Anyone got anymore we can try ?

99 seems to be the closest I get. I'm still figuring.
Some people die at 21 but aren't buried until they are 65.
