The Mystery League
By Sandor Weisz • Issue #79 • View online
For last week’s puzzle, we got a lot of entries for one particular wrong answer: -1. I can see why, but it didn’t really fit the intended conditions. Same with 0. However, I have to give a shout out to Tamara Brenner for this incredible alternate answer:
‘Ninety one’ is 9 letters - remove 3 letters (1/3), the o-n-e, leaving ‘ninety’. In 7-segment digital display format, 90 has 12 total segments (6 in the 9 and 6 in the 0) - remove 4 segments (1/3) from the 0 so that it becomes a 1 and we are back to 91.
🛍 🎤 🛍
Puzzle of the Week. Think of a store that’s got about 9,000 locations across the USA. Remove the first and last letters and add a space, and you’ll get the name of a beloved Grammy-winning musical artist. What store and artist are they?
