    Thanks, but it's not that impressive - I just happen to have algebra as a learned skill. I was more impressed that you didn't but came up with your own way to solve it, that's what real intelligence is about!

    Annotated version? c+a/4=100 rearranges to a=400-4c.

    Oooh I might see if I can find this mathematical riddle that I came across yesterday and it had me stumped, and start a spin off! I love algebra and I was devastated that I couldn't figure it out haha.

    Yes it's correct!

    I told him as soon as he walked in the door. He wanted to know how long it took me lol. I did come clean though about PP figuring it out!
