Awesome story William S. That story epitomizes irony since Lee was fighting for the South to continue Black slavery. That's orders of magnitude more interesting than what I have to offer...which is why I thumbed you up ;-)
I only offer a simple math problem. Nevertheless, you can pose this problem to anyone and they won't be able to answer it for quite a long time (if ever). Here is the question that you should pose
1)What 4 numbers can be used to form the numbers [1-40] by simple addition and subtraction.
2)The four numbers can be used individually, partially, or the entire set collectively
3)Each number may ONLY BE USED ONCE!!
The best way to pose the question is by example. Lets choose the four numbers [6,8,9,10]
1 = 9-8
2 = 10-8
3 = 9-6
4 = 10-6
5 = 10-6 + 9-8
6 = 6 (each number can be used alone)
7 = 10+6-9
8 = 8
9 = 9
10 = 10
11 = 10+9-8
Find the SET OF FOUR NUMBERS (There is ONLY ONE ANSWER)
Hint: This set is NOT the correct answer ;-)
William S. is also challenged since he is an excellent tutor!!
