I have recently joined this site and have found the puzzles to be great. They get me thinking and some will be great for my year 7 students as they also enjoy a challenge. In regards to the puzzle "choose the right symbol", there is another solution. You could use a greater than sign 5>9 as this would also be correct.

The Puzzle: Choose the Right Symbol

But 5>9 (5 greater than 9) is "false"

Boy let me tell you what:

I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.

And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.
