Re: 7 D in the W


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

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.  smile

It comes from a song.  Google is one of my friends.  Well done.

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