    the letter e

    As I was going to St. Ives,
    I met a man with seven wives.
    Each wife had seven sacks,
    Each sack had seven cats,
    Each cat had seven kits.
    Kits, cats, sacks and wives,
    How many were going to St. Ives?

    that puzzle was answered my one is now up and you need to answer the question before you put a new puzzle up


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,316 ✭✭✭Absoluvely


    This only makes sense if you only get to put up a new puzzle if you had the right answer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭brugmand

    if i put up a puzzle and you break it you then put up the next puzzle is that clear ?

    I thought Andy made it pretty clear that you didn't solve that puzzle:

    The right answer is 1. It's a pretty well-known puzzle though. You can read all about it here.

    So I got the right answer and the new puzzle is How many squares are there on a chess board?

    No Googling!

    65 including the bord ?

    More than 65. You're on the right track though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 48,742 ✭✭✭✭Wichita Lineman


    67 - the squares on the board, the board itself and the 2 squares playing it ha ha - no offense intended to chess players it's just a guess.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,316 ✭✭✭Absoluvely


    Nope. It's more than 67.

    There are sixty-four "1x1" squares and there's one "8x8" square [the board]. You just gotta find out how many "2x2" squares and "3x3" squares and so on there are and add them up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭brugmand


    204 ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,316 ✭✭✭Absoluvely


    Yup!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭brugmand


    If i tell you 'everything i say is a lie' am i telling the truth ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭brugmand

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭brugmand

    How can you make this sum add up by using just one stroke of the pen (obviously you'll need to write it down although I just checked there and you can do it on the keyboard)

    5+5+5 = 550
