Product Description
Okay, here's the problem, which I stole from somewhere (but I don't remember where.)

"Three people go into a hardware store to buy letters to spell out the numbers on their house. The first one buys "ONE" - that's 3 letters, and pays $2. The second person buys the letters 'TWO" - three letters as well, and pays $3. The third person buys "ELEVEN" and all those letters cost $5.

Samantha Sagacious want to put the number TWELVE on her house. How much did she pay for those letters?"

The preview is a FREEBIE and has 4 copies of the question ganged up on a single page so you can "cut n' serve" these without printing dozens of copies. THAT'S FREE!

However, you want the answer? Well, for that you're going to have to pay and pay and pay. Well, not really that many "pays" but you can get the solution as well as the puzzla without the watermark for only, can you believe it, $3.01!

Go for it, friends!
