Brain Teasers...
1. A wine seller earned £532 in a day. Red wine cost 3 times as much as white wine. Of the 140 bottles sold, only one quarter were red. How much would 5 bottles of red wine cost?

2. I live at a house number (1461) and I want to place it on a clear piece of plastic in such a way that it can be viewed from both sides and still show the correct number using the number only once. How can I do this?
