Yay, first Comment. I got the yards but not the chain. Nice teaser.

2nd comment! I got the yards part too, but definitely not the chain. Where (or when) is that unit of measurement used? Good, but hard.

Same here. An explanation would make it more interesting.

Sorry, this is old english imperial measurements. I should have put in an explanation - never even thought about it. A good example of where the chain is used is on the cricket field, where the distance between the stumps is exactly 22 yards, or 1 chain. 10 chains make a furlong, which is obviously used in horseracing. But cricket isn't very well'known in the US, or so I'm led to believe!
Thanks for all the positive comments.

Very easy and I got both the yards and the chain. Maybe because I remember the measurements from school. Wow that makes me feel old
