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

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
