    Question 1

    I am a two digit number.

    I am 5 times the sum of my digits

    What number am I.

    Question 2

    An internet cable runs around the equator of the earth. How much cable would you need (to the nearest metre) If you wanted to put it on 10m pylons rather then just lying on the ground?

    55555 x 5555 = 308608025

    Question 2

    Length needed = 2 * 3.1415 * (10M + distance from surface of earth to center of hell measured in meters)

    Circumference = 2piR

    Hmmm... so I can use the digits 1 to 5 only once. That doesn't prohibit me from using other digits Your question does implicate I have to use them once and only once though.
    So I'd say it's something like 99543 x 9921 = 987566103 (product of a 5 digit and 4 digit numer with the digits 1 to 5 used only once)...

    Question 1

    I am a two digit number.

    I am 5 times the sum of my digits.

    What number am I.


    00 ? Sum is 0, 5 times zero still is 0... Does that count?

    Question 1

    5(a + b) = 10a + b
    5a + 5b = 10a + b
    -5a + 4b = 0

    a = 4, b = 5

    -5 * 4 + 4 * 5 = 0

    The number is 45.

    measurement

    Omen---how far apart are the pylons--or is there only one each on opposing sides of the equator? If there are only 2 pylons opposed--and using 25000 mile circumferance(changed into meters) them my guess would be 40233631.53 meters---- Doc51
