Product Description
In this puzzle you’ll discover some major and minor differences between alligators and crocodiles. Each brief description is followed by a small, but power full, arithmetic expression to simplify, using powers of 2 and 3 . . . powers that become increasingly important to know as one progresses in math. If the expression simplifies to an odd number, the description is that of a gator . . . if it’s even the description is that of a croc. Following the descriptions is a Jamaican Proverb to decode . . . and heed. To decode it, find the values that the numerical expressions simplified to in the grid, then put the problem letter on the blank above it. This is a puzzle from my book Fun with Hilton Head and Beaufort (for the well-rounded puzzler who wants to know more.)
