Would like to thank everyone that tried to solve or solved it.... On the other puzzle you were giving percentages and I really thought it was great... although Jim was the only one that gave the correct answer then and he slept thru math classes in high school... but I love the way KateEE explained it. KateEE love you for this. The correct answer is 44 + 66 = 110 and Jim you must have soaked something up while you were sleeping. Gotta love you both...Oh and I forgot about Steven he had it also... I think this has been the most fun of them all....

Katee, not quite how I would have put it, but yes, correct. One of the numbers is 1.5 times the other, so their ratio is 2 to 3. In other words, one is 2/5th, the other is 3/5th. 1/5th of 110 is 22, so 2/5ths is 44, 3/5ths is 66.

150% of the other means 1.5 times the other, cos if it was 100% of the other then the numbers would be the same. So if one part is z (ie 1z), the other is 1.5z. And it tells us that 1z + 1.5z = 150 If you add 1z and 1.5z you get 2.5z so 2.5z = 150 so z = 150 dvided by 2.5 = 44 therefore 1.5z = 66 So the 2 numbers are 44 + 66 (which added together = 110) Tell me I'm right????

So what do I do? Not doubting anyone here - honest - but it's so easy to say 'I know the answer' :-) Of course I could be wrong!! But giving an answer spoils the fun. Ah, the dilemma's of life with technology :-) Whatever happened to 'send in your answers on a postcard'?????

Good morning dear Sissy, good to see you did sleep a bit longer. I hope it was nice. An easy one today, no words with more meanings. So it was easy to solve. I wish you a beaitful day.

Good morning Mandy ..good for you... Hugs Good morning Lorna .. all right ...Hugs Good morning Morris... Coffee ready... just got mine slept in this morning..
