The owner of the "Sweaty Chef" kebab shop Mr. Juan, had ordered a fresh delivery of kebabs. Mr. Juan was a bit of a strange character and insisted that the kebabs must be delivered in a certain manner. When they arrived they were in boxes, so Mr. Juan weighed each box individually. The boxes weighed as follows:-

Box 1 33kg

Box 2 35kg

Box 3 60kg

Box 4 42kg

Box 5 15kg

Which box did Mr. Juan reject and why?

I got box 2 ... but I was adding the box number in resulting in ascending values with box 2 out of order.

Simple variation on a theme we've all seen before, so lets make it more interesting: he's Babylonian right?! Loves sexagesimal numbering systems?

dumb. lots of solutions could apply.

Sexagesimal? If that's a real term I'm impressed...I think.

I thought that each kebab is 3kg, and box 2 is faulty.

I was going with the divisible by 3 thing -- makes more sense than adding up the digits.

Don't forget the weight of the boxes!
