 Lottery (Posted on 2005-01-27)
Sally, Joe, Bob, Fred, and Mary all won a prize in the school lottery. One of them won \$500; one of them \$196; another won \$48; another, \$16; and another, \$2. Each of the students won in a different month: February, March, September, October, and December. How much money did each student win and in what month?

Clues:
