Whodunit Part 2: Places, Places (Posted on 2004-08-16) Difficulty: 4 of 5
The day following the robbery, Bill Bonche was out searching for the five suspects. He decided to go to the city's database on the computer and looked on the city radar. He located the robbed house and saw the five suspects and the streets they returned to (one lives on Dale Avenue). However, it was raining out, and parts of the notes he took were ruined by the water.

With the remaining information, figure out what street the suspects live on, their house number, their phone number, and what color their house is.

  1. The suspect who lives on Morgan Street has a 1 in their phone number. The red house has two of the same numbers in its house number.

  2. If you add up all of the digits in Chip Circle's house number, the total is three less than the total of the digits in the gray house's number, which is four greater than that of the house whose phone number is 693-9737.

  3. If you multiply the last two digits of the yellow house's phone number, the total is equal to the sum of the last two digits in the house with the house number 1036's phone number.

  4. The blue house's house number isn't the highest number, but is larger than both the house with the phone number 697-2215, which is the white house, and the house on Monarch Rd.

  5. The house on Sandy Lane doesn't have a repeated digit in its house number, has a phone number beginning in 693, and is not the blue house.

  6. One paper was completely wiped out except for the lists of house numbers (1036, 2137, 3321, 3778, 7978) and phone numbers (693-1314, 693-9737, 696-7123, 697-2215, 697-4479).

A fair question indeed!

But, since the author hasn't logged in to Perplexus in over three months, I wouldn't count on getting an answer.

I suggest you continue with your interpretation, and see where that gets you.
