In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Re: 7 D in the W

hi Stefy,

I had a little help from my friends.

What is wrong with 4 H of the A  ?

Apart from the obvious that I wouldn't like to meet them.

I almost forgot what that phrase means.

Ok,then. I think the others are ok,too. This is interesting. Wonder if MIF has more of these he would like to post.

I hope you get them all, because I've forgotten what one of the answers is.  Oh dear!
