    8 is the correct answer. April is still up!

    The formula is:

    8 covers at .25 (the front cover of 1 and the back cover of 5 plus both covers of 2, 3, and 4)

    600 pages at .01 (the worm ate ONLY the pages of books 2, 3, 4. He ate NO pages of books 1 or 5).

    600 pages? I thought they were 400 pages each? They are 400 pages each. When was the last time you bought a book that the pages were printed only on one side?

    Tiggerguy is also up, so since T-nina will get this one correct, he can post one too.

    Billy was on holiday last year on the island of Dellzup. Dellzup is a really peculiar shape for an island, it's rectangular, 20 miles long and only 15 feet wide, and totally covered in trees! It has two tiny villages on it Start and End, unfortunately, a fire has begun at Start and is travelling toward End at around 1 mile per hour. There is also a wind which is blowing towards End at around 2 miles per hour. Now, Billy, who is at End, has no way of getting off the island, he cannot pass through the fire, he cannot put the fire out and there is no one to help him. How can he save himself?

    If he was there last year, why does he care if there is a fire there now?

    No, it means I haven't even tried to find the "right" answer, because I thought the "smartbutt" answer WAS the "right" answer!

    He was there last year and the fire was last year. How did he save himself to live to tell the tale.

    Oh, well there are several things he could do. One would be to stand in the ocean until the fire burns out. Two would be to wade around to the other side of the island and walk around the fire. Three would be to go to the middle of the island and start a fire and burn the trees all the way to end and follow the second fire while the first fire burns behind him (commonly done to fight forest fires-- called a fire break-- ask your dad.)

    The simplest method is to light a new fire about 1 mile from End. This fire will burn toward End (because of the wind) and when it reaches End, it will go out. Billy can then go to End, knowing that the main fire cannot reach him as his smaller fire has already burned all of the trees down.

    I picked this one in in honor of my dad who got me dinner tonight!

    And T-nina is up.

    He has to start a second fire that will burn toward the first fire. The wind blows the second fire into the first fire, using up fuel for both, and the rest of the island is safe.

    oops too late.
