### Re: Puzzle

Insomnia:

Yes, that theory has been suggested, but adding the numbers making up each number on the last puzzle (answer 7894), this method would only have yielded 4243 or, if including the results of the calculations, way more than 7894.

### Re: Puzzle

Almost exactly. The only minor difference is that the values £625 & £750 are at the bottom of the screen (as per the £500). I doubt it makes any difference to the answer, but given that we dont yet have a definitive methodology for the calculation, I have to assume that the physical position COULD be relevant!

There are 240 pence in an old English pound. (12 pence in a shilling, 20 shillings in a pound) Try it using 240.
