### Brain Teasers

Just a couple brain teasers:

-------------------------

1. Divide \$1075 (in whole \$ increments) into a number of bags so that I can ask for any amount between \$1 and \$1075, and you can give me the proper amount by giving me a certain number of these bags without opening them. What is the minimum number of bags you will require?

-------------------------

2. If the difference of two numbers is 9 and their product is 13, what is the sum of their squares?

-------------------------

3. What number does not fit with the others and why?

31,556,926
234,567.876
525,948.766
8,765.81277
365.242199
52.177457
12

------------------------

4. Super Scrabble is a game for eight players. Two boards are used, and the two sets of tiles are combined. The players, in turn, can play on either of the boards. To determine the order of play, each player draws a tile. Howard drew "T", Betty drew "J", Walter drew "H", Lily drew "O", Fred drew "B", Nancy drew "F", and Jason drew "M". After drawing her letter, Alice asked, "Can anyone logically figure out what letter I drew?" After a few moments, Jason replied, "I know what letter you drew." He was correct. What letter did Alice draw? How did Jason know?

I got the first one simply because I didn't have to think too much on it, I deal with that every day programming bit vectors. I might try the others later on.

Bury me a Royal.

What I gave was nowhere near an answer, fella. Any slacktooth hillbilly could have offered up the same observation as mine.
