Below are thirteen 5 lettered words, each of which has had two of its letters removed. In total these 26 letters are A-Z. The remaining letters in each word are in the correct order. There are no words which are spelled differently based upon location (favour/favor, etc). Can you determine the original words?
To work the answer out from the question, we observe that:
1÷2 + 1÷4 + 1÷5 = 19÷20
and we know that there were 49 coins left, so 1÷20 of the collection is 49 coins.
Which means that the entire collection is 20 x 49 = 980 coins.
Can you tell what this rebus is?
Hint: Say what you see.
