Dougie's Pill Disaster

The Puzzler


RAY: Here’s how you solve it. The only hope he has is to take the pills that he has, all 20 of them, and grind them up into a powder, mix the powder up, and then divide the powder into 10 equal piles.

He can do it either by eye -- or better still -- he can use the scale. Thus, he can take one little pile of powder every night at the right time. Who's our winner Tommy?

TOM: The winner this week is Linda Jo Lockner from Black Hawk, South Dakota. Congratulations, Linda!
