Hints/Tips re: subset B and others Comment 6 of 6 |
(In reply to subset B by Dej Mar)

I was presented with this puzzle long time ago and remembered(erroneously) 3 numbers: 13,2,15  instead of 12,3,15 .

When I tried to solve "my puzzle" I have introduced a correction,

but solved it for Sum =131 instead of 136 (all P&P)- 10,11 being the numbers creating product 110 and  the "sum" 131=21+110.

Sorry for the waste of time caused by my haste...still ERRARE HUMANUM EST.

DejMar, your expansion (research!) is appreciated.
