Hint: You may have to think a little laterally.
Answer: Place one letter from TEN HORSES into each of the nine stables.
Last week, I travelled from London to Stoke. On the first day I travelled one half of the distance. On day two, I travelled one third of the remaining distance. On day three, I travelled three quarters of the remaining distance. Yesterday I travelled one half of the remaining distance. I now have 5 miles left to travel. How far is it from Stoke to London in total?
On the first day I travelled 60 miles, leaving 60 miles. On day two I travelled 20 miles, leaving 40 miles On day three I travelled 30 miles, leaving 10 miles. Yesterday I travelled 5 miles, leaving 5 miles. QED.
Fill in the missing numbers with the digits 1 to 9. A diamond shape in the middle means that the four numbers around it add to 20.
Each uses a different way to add to 20, i.e. if there is already 1 + 3 + 8 + 9, then there will not be another using the digits 1, 3, 8 and 9 (in any order). The same digit isn't allowed to touch, even diagonally.
Hint: The diamond on the right side can only be 2 + 3 + 7 + 8.
Using the BrainTracker grid below, how many words can you find? Each word must contain the central D and no letter can be used twice, however, the letters do not have to be connected. Proper nouns are not allowed, however, plurals are. There is at least one nine letter word. Excellent: 55 words. Good: 42 words. Average: 33 words.
