My BrainBashers electronic world atlas has developed another fault, I did a listing of miles from England to particular countries and here is the result:
Australia 500 miles
Peru 8,000 miles
India 4,500 miles
Scotland 9,500 miles
How far away did it list France as?
Answer: 3,000 miles.
Take the alphabetic position of the first letter, half and then multiply by 1000.
F = 6, halved = 3, * 1000 = 3,000.
