Nice puzzles. After all those mince pies it is no wonder Horace is the heaviest of his friends... smile

Re: New Puzzles 2

Hi;

Pure-Coincidence was the first problem I ever saw. My Mom showed it to me and I never forgot how amazing the solution was.

Hungry Horace reduces to three simultaneous equations.







horace = 50
tim        = 25
kate      = 35


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
