Re: New Puzzles 5

I disagree with the number alphabet puzzle's solution. You can write myriad with the letters.

Re: New Puzzles 5

Hi MIF;

For the "It Could Be Verse" puzzle there are three more solutions:

For "Mince Pie Madness" that is the correct solution. You solve it using this equation.

p = 109


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Nice! Also "many", "lots" and "heaps".

Thanks bobby for those, will add them.

Well, unlike "heaps" and "many" and such, "myriad" is an actual number.

The puzzles are nice indeed! And there have been so many new ones in the last couple of days! Keep up the good work!
