Each letter of the country is worth 100 miles based on its position in the alphabet. Therefore, Germany = 7 + 5 + 18 + 13 + 1 + 14 + 25 = 83 * 100 miles.
At the local play group for babies and toddlers, I was asking the mothers about the number of teddies each of their children has.
The four children are aged 1, 2, 3 and 4.
Remarkably, the children have one, two, three and four teddies, although not necessarily respectively.
Darren has more teddies that his age. John is older than Matthew. Curiously only one child has the same number of teddies as their age. Paul has fewer teddies than John and the child aged 3 has two teddies. Paul is the youngest.
Matthew is 3 and has two teddies.
Paul is 1 and has one teddies.
John is 4 and has three teddies.
Darren is 2 and has four teddies.
