Penny writes,
"To solve puzzles like this, there are three choices:
(1) Be a genius and solve it by intuition, like Ramanujan.
(2) Find the answer on the internet
(3) Write a program"


I would have to agree with that, except that some of us are able to simultaneously choose more than one of those choices.... and I don't find my answers on the internet ;-). J/K !
