Some people can't on such short notice, but well, I'm a sucker for such puzzles. (2)

Got 'em. Took about 30-45 seconds. Fun.

Find a six-digit number in which the first digit is one more than the third, the second is one less than the fourth, the fifth is one less than the third and the sixth digit is one more than the fourth. The sum of the second and third digit equals the first. The sum of all the digits is 30.

I got the second. I love numbers.

Very cool.

Same here. Could you PM me the answer to the numbers one? It's making me dizzy.

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 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~
