Everyday Einstein – 8.12.2010

In these uncertain  economic times, families are spending more time together. Perhaps you’ve canceled cable. Maybe you’ve instituted a weekly family game night. Even if you only have ten minutes to spare, you still want something inexpensive, engaging, and fostering of a family connection.

For today’s puzzle,  we bring you one of the 500 games/puzzles/entertainment from The Black-Out Book, compiled by Evelyn August. Styled in the essence of wartime publishing, this book captures the nostalgia of a simpler time.

“Can you write down the same odd number five times, so that the five figures total 14? Well, then, can you write down four nines so that they total 100? Still too easy? Then try adding together four fives to make 6 1/2.”
