Hint: Imagine Fred started with a large sum of money.
Answer: £2,000.
Imagine Fred started with £20,000, after buying the car he would have had £16,000. He then sold it to Alice, which left him with £21,000 and then bought it again leaving him £15,000. Fred finally sold it again leaving him with £22,000. So Fred's profit was £2,000.
Alternatively, you can see that Fred spent a total of £4,000 + £6,000 = £10,000 and received a total of £5,000 + £7,000 = £12,000. A difference of £2,000.
Puzzle 402
Below you will find 15 wellknown six letter words, with only their endings remaining. Can you determine the words?
During the recent BrainBashers cipher convention, a binary code contest took place.
The contest consisted of a binary code transmission where the spaces between the letters were missing and there was no punctuation.
Each letter of the alphabet was translated into its binary equivalent based on its position in the alphabet. The resulting code was then blocked in groups of five digits.
Across: FATE, WASH, RUNG, DOES
Down : GASH, TOWN, DUES, FARE
Boxes : WHAT, SAFE, SONG, RUDE
Note : Other anagrams of these words are OK as long as they don't change the answer grid.
