I'll join the "goodluck" crowd .... :o I guess there's a math formula for this sort of teaser, but math is NOT my strong suite. I rated it TOPS for fun, though, because I love the challenge. And .... I hope the trauma hospital had LOTS of wheelchairs .... 8) 8) 8) 8) :lol: BB02

Didn't want to start the morning counting how many legs were gone. :-? Zero fun points.

I have a doctorate in math science, so this was as easy as counting to three But could be interesting or hard for many. :D :D

I am a logic fan as well as a math fan, but this teaser just needed some logic to figure out. Math was not involved at all. Loved it, loved it, loved it. It was easy but fun. :lol: :lol: :lol:

At first I thought 50 because everyone had 1, but that would make it 100. I know what I meant though.
