An Interesting Series of Numbers

The Puzzler


RAY: Here's what's unusual about these numbers. Each one of them is evenly divisible by the number of letters in its English spelling. For example, the number 33 has 11 letters in it and 11 goes into 33 three times. The number 6 has three letters and is evenly divisible by three. The number 50 has five letters and is evenly divisible by 5. Do we have a winner?



TOM: Yes, we do. Our winner this week is Ron Berget from Mountain View, Arkansas, and for having his answer selected at random from all the correct answers that we got, Ron's going to get a $26 gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division with which he can order our Car Talk high octane drip kit.



RAY: Congratulations, Ron!
