Brain Teasers...

1. Find two blocks of numbers from within this list, one of which is double the other, and which when added together make 10743: 57162383581

2. How many English words can you make from the following five letters. Each letter must be used in the word, but can only be used once: E I P R S


  1. 1. Numbers are: 3581 and 7162

    2. Words are harder! PRISE; PIERS; SPIRE; PRIES; PERIS (I wasn't on countdown for nothing). And that's about it. I'm sure some of the other anagrams exist but... can't be bothered to check. If you're Homer Simpson though, you'd probably suggest "R, PIES".

  2. Yay! You are, as-I'm-sure-you-know-and-if-you-don't-someone-should-be-telling-you-on-a-regular-basis, a star.
