It’s the Friday Puzzle!


Two puzzles this week!  Solutions on Monday.

1) What 5-letter word actually becomes shorter when you add two letters to it?

2) Find a number less than 100 that is increased by one-fifth of its value when its digits are reversed.

I have produced an ebook containing 101 of the previous Friday Puzzles! It is called PUZZLED and is available for the Kindle (UK here and USA here) and on the iBookstore (UK here in the USA here). You can try 101 of the puzzles for free here.
