The Puzzler


RAY: Here's the answer. Ready for this? A dozen, a gross, and a score, plus three times the square root of four. Divided by seven, plus five times 11 is nine squared, and not a bit more.

TOM: Ah! A dozen, a gross, and a score.

RAY: And of course, a dozen is 12, a gross is 144, a score is 20. Plus three times the square root of four, which is three times two, which is six. Divided by seven, plus five times 11, is 81.

TOM: Nine squared, and not a bit more.

RAY: Who's our winner, man?

TOM: The winner is Lynn Klein from Oxford, England, or Pennsylvania. Oxford, Pennsylvania. Congratulations Lynn!
