Last issue's logic puzzle solved: Broken Stones...
In the last issue of In Touch, you read about a mathematics professor who bought a small farm in Shropshire, and the property came with a large balance scale and an old 40-pound stone. One morning while cleaning his barn, the professor dropped the stone and it broke into four pieces.The professor, however, discovered that this was a good thing. Using these four pieces, he could now weigh any item – as long as these items were in one-pound increments – between one and 40 pounds. What did those four stones weigh?

The four pieces weighed one, three, nine and 27 pounds.

You might ask, then how would you weigh a five-pound bag of flour? By putting the bag, the three-pound stone and the one-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the nine-pound stone on the other. How about a 33-pound bag of feed? Put the bag and the three-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the 27-pound and nine-pound stones on the other.

Our winners, drawn at random, are Michael Channon (General Science, 1966), Roger Jones (Civil Engineering, 1961), and David Perry (Physics, 1986). Congratulations!

Last issue’s puzzle...
Broken stones
 
In the previous issue of In Touch, you read about a mathematics professor who bought a small farm in Shropshire, and the property came with a large balance scale and an old 40-pound stone. One morning while cleaning his barn, the professor dropped the stone and it broke into four pieces.
 
The professor, however, discovered that this was a good thing. Using these four pieces, he could now weigh any item – as long as these items were in one-pound increments – between one and 40 pounds. What did those four stones weigh?
 
The four pieces weighed one, three, nine and 27 pounds.
 
You might ask, then how would you weigh a five-pound bag of flour? By putting the bag, the three-pound stone and the one-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the nine-pound stone on the other. How about a 33-pound bag of feed? Put the bag and the three-pound stone on one side of the balance, and the 27-pound and nine-pound stones on the other.
 
Our winners, drawn at random, are Michael Channon (General Science, 1966), Roger Jones (Civil Engineering, 1961) and David Perry (Physics, 1986). 
 
Sentence along the lines of… Michael Channon and Roger Jones kindly donated their winnings to the College fund?
