**I can’t believe that we are into a week of puzzle solving already. I hope you are having fun. Here is today’s puzzle…..**

Yesterday I went fishing. I caught a fish that had a length of 30 inches plus half its own length.

How long was the fish?

**Yesterday I posted this puzzle….**

My friend Albert is trying to open a safe. The following numbers are on the safe door….

77 – 49 – 36 – xx

…the next number in the sequence will open the safe.

What number should Albert use to get inside the safe?

If you haven’t tried to solve it, have a go now. For everyone else, the answer is below….

The sequence involves multiplying the two numbers together to get the next number….

7×7 =49

4×9= 36

… and so the number that Albert was after was 3×6=18

Richard. You need to remind people NOT to post the answer……..

Also. I saw this posted yesterday and solved it yesterday. How did that happen? I’m not psychic!

Richard needs to not be posting old questions. We did this one a few days ago! I think he’s getting muddled.

Using the first digits of each:

7+7=14 so the next digit is 4

4+9=13 so the next digit is 3

3+6=9 so the next digit is 9*

Using the second digits:

7+9=16 so the digit is 6

9+6=15 so the digit is 5*

Hence the last number is 95*

Ok, ok, you’re answer is better 😉
