Challenge for November

by Lester Dickey

At my favorite fruit stand, an orange costs 18 cents, a pineapple costs 27 cents, and a grape costs 15 cents. How much does a pear cost? For a more difficult challenge, but no chance at a pizza, how much does a plum cost if an orange costs 15 cents, a pineapple costs 20 cents, and a grape costs 10 cents?

Please e-mail Lester Dickey with your answer and your name, phone number, and the organization for which you work. Or call Barbara Buck at 624-9501. The winner will be drawn from all the correct entries and will receive a FREE donated pizza, either from CJís Pizza or from the EDOC Cafeteria. All answers must be in no later than the 14th of the month.

Last month's challenge brought 47 submissions, with 32 being correct answers. The winner, chosen by random drawing, is Peter Konieczko of MRS.

The answers to last monthís Challenge: 16 pieces of chalk will last 21 days, with ľ piece left over. 30 pieces of chalk will last for 39 days, with ĺ piece left over. For those of you who expressed an interest in getting chalk glue (also used for mending wands), I think it is available at Ollivanderís in Daigon Alley.
