107. The names of three males are interlettered below. Can
you find them?

TIMOTHY, CHRISTOPHER, SEBASTIAN.

108. The combined ages of Mark and Andrew are 44, and Mark is twice as old as
Andrew was when Mark was half as old as Andrew will be when Andrew is three times as old as Mark was when Mark was three times as old as Andrew. How
old is Mark? If you cannot work it out, ask your friends to help you, and watch the bewilderment creep over their faces as they attempt to grapple with
the problem.

Mark is 27 and 1/2 and Andrew is 16 and 1/2.

109. You bought 2 antique lamps for $50 each. Later, you were offered $60
for one and you sold it, changed your mind when you saw its duplicate being sold for more, and bought it back for $70. You then sold it for $80. The
first one didn't sell at all so you reduced it by 10% below what you originally paid and managed to sell it. Did you make or lose money on the deal, and
how much?

110. In a foot race, Frances was not last and beat Georgia. Jill beat Ida
and Harriet. Georgia beat Jill. Harriet was not first. Ida was neither first nor last and beat Harriet. What was the order in which the
runners finished?

Frances, Georgia, Jill, Ida, Harriet.

111. Using the musical notes C, D, E, F, G, A and B, what is the longest word that
can be played on the piano? That is, using some or all of these letters, as many or as few times as you like, what is the longest word you can
find? No foreign or hyphenated words allowed.

There are several 7-letter words: acceded, baggage, cabbage, defaced, and effaced. And at least one 8-letter word: cabbaged.

112. The following 15 letters can be anagrammed into three words that could be
said to a short-order cook. What are they?

O O E E I N C R L T H G Y L V

113. It was a bring your own food party, but not everyone could contribute
food. The agreement was that those who didn't bring food would contribute cash. Sally brought a certain amount of pies, Jane brought one more than
Sally, and Hector brought one more than Jane. William brought nothing, but asked them to divide the nice little pies equally, and he would pay. The
four split the pies evenly. There was a total of a dozen pies, each worth $1.00. How much should each of them get or pay?

Of the 12 pies, worth $12.00, Sally brought 3, Jane brought 4, and Hector brought 5. Therefore, to evenly split the cost of the pies, William must pay Jane $1. and Hector $2. This means that each person spent $3. for the food.

114. TWO X TWO = THREE

Each letter stands for one and only one digit, and no digit is represented by more than one letter. Can you work out what digits the letters in the
above multiplication stand for so that the identity above is actually correct?

TWO is 138, so that 138 X 138 = 19044. T must equal 1 and W must be less than of equal to 4, since THREE contains five digits. E must equal 4 as 44 is the only combination of two equal digits that can terminate a square. Hence, O is either 2 or 8. Trial and error then shows that TWO must be 138.

115. Here's a palindrome for you. What did Alice eat from her Greek salad?

_ T _ _ _ _ _

116. If 9 is twice 5, how will you write 6 times 5 in the same system of
notation? ( this type of puzzle dates back to the early Middle Ages, so don't say it isn't logic. )

Because 6 = 3 X 2, then 6 X 5 = (3 X 2) X 5 = 3 X (2 X 5). If twice 5 is 9, according to the conditions of the problem, the answer is 3 X 9 = 27. This type of puzzle is often used to introduce students to the idea of base numbers other than 10.

117. A man planted 2 poles upright in level ground. One pole was 6ft. 6in.
and the other was 7ft. 7in. above ground. From the top of each pole he tied a string to the bottom of the other pole, just where it entered the
ground. What height above the ground was the point where the two strings crossed? It is of no consequence as to how far apart the poles are.
Two feet or two hundred feet, it will not affect the answer.

42 inches. Use of simple geometry reveals that the answer to this problem is obtained by multiplying together the heights of the two poles, and then dividing this by the sum of the poles heights. Thus, 78 X 91 divided by 78 + 91.

118. What is the 4-digit number, no zeros, in which the first digit is the number
of muses, the second digit is the number of planets between the earth and the sun, and the third and fourth digits are the sum of the first two? (The
sum of all the digits is 13.)

119. Which set of numbers would most logically come next in the following
sequence?

10 1 9 2 8 3 7 4 6 5 5 6 4 7 3 8 2

(a) 9 1 (b) 9
3 (c) 8
5 (d) 6 7

(a) 9 1. There are two series, one starting with 10 and going down one number each time, and one starting with 1 and going up one number each time.

120. Put 3 letters in front of and the same 3 letters (in the same order) behind
