BRAIN STRAIN

Okay I got a page a day calendar for Christmas with logic puzzles in it. I put it up and just ran across it again today and thought I would see how many brains I can strain by posting some of the puzzles.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Puzzle #1

The names of three cities from the same U.S. state are hidden in the sentence below. Can you find them? (the letters are in consecutive order)

"Watch out for that kayak," Ron said on Sunday to no one in particular, raising the panic level and upsetting the crowd.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Have fun.....I have 356 more days worth of them to go. LOL

I got the 3 cities -- the two came quickly, the third one took some studying and then I was annoyed with myself when I saw how plain it was. Won't even look at the numbers one: My eyes glaze over when I see numbers!

Let's do another one before I head out the door to work.

Puzzle #3

In a souvenir toy shop, the prices are set according to the owner's whim. An airplane costs $0.12, a stamp costs $0.09, a doll costs $0.07 and a top costs $0.05. According to this system, how much will a wagon cost?

Puzzle #1 Answers: Akron, Dayton, Cleveland

Puzzle #2 Answer: 918,273 (if the digits are ABCDEF, we are told that A=C+1 and A=C+B. The only way this would work is if B=1. We can now determine the formulas for the digits in order are (E+2, 1, E+1, 2 E, 3). Since the sum of the digits is 30, we have the equation 3E + 9= 30. Solving E=7. So the number is 918,273)

*~*~*~*Puzzle #2 gave me headaches and I finally gave up and cheated and looked at the answer and ya know what.....it still didn't make a lot of sense. LOL ~*~*~*~*~*~*~


Puzzle #3 Answer: $0.08 ($0.02 per Consonant and $0.01 per vowel)
