### Re: Puzzles

Still no attempt at these 3 teasers yet.

1. Which two numbers can complete the series 12, 33, 66, ___, 363, 999, ____ ?

3. The following note found in a bottle was brought to the attention of a brilliant professor by one of his students. The latter challenged the learned man to figure out : who was the famous sea captain who wrote the poem contained in the note below?

"A mighty ship I now command,
With cargo rare from every land.
No goods have I to trade or sell;
Each wind will serve my turn as well;
To neither port nor harbor bound,
My greatest wish to run aground."

4. Using each of the division, multiplication, addition and subtraction signs only once with the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9. How does one arrive at one as the answer?

Noah...possibly the only sea captain who wants his ship to be grounded.

4. Using each of the division, multiplication, addition and subtraction signs only once with the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9. How does one arrive at one as the answer?

I guess the two above are too tough.
Below are simpler ones.

1. Shopping can present a terrible dilemma, the new couple discovered. 3kg of potatoes and 2kg of eggplants cost \$2.25. Or they could just buy eggplants for the same amount of money and make a casserole out of all those eggplants. But potatoes are cheaper than eggplants. How much did potatoes cost per kg?

2. What is the five-digit number, no zeroes, in which the second digit is three times the first, the third is one more than the second, the fourth is four times the first, and the last is one-half more than the second?

3. What are the two missing numbers in the series below?
_ _ 3 3 7 7 2 3 6 5

More importantly, could you then answer these still unsolved ones, particularly the first two, left?

"1. Which two numbers can complete the series 12, 33, 66, ___, 363, 999, ____ ?

4. Using each of the division, multiplication, addition and subtraction signs only once with the numbers 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9. How does one arrive at one as the answer?"
