Pete Vs. the Puzzles
by Randall L. Whipkey
Last night, in a two-hour period, Pete Puzzleman solved an on-line
puzzle at www.mrs-puzzlemaker.com and four other web sites. At each
site, Pete tried a different kind of puzzle, solving an Acrostic at
one. Given the data below, you should be able to decide the order
in which Pete logged onto the web sites, the puzzle he solved at
each, and the amount of time he spent solving each puzzle.
- Pete spent twice as much time during the two hours working on
the Crossword as he did solving the puzzle at the first web
site he visited.
- Pete spent a total of one hour at the second through fourth
pages he visited; he spent a different amount of time at each
of the five sites.
- In consecutive order, first-to-last, Pete worked on these
three puzzles: the one that took him 10 mins. to solve, the
Word Math puzzle, and the puzzle at www.top-flite-puzzles.com.
- Pete visited www.pro-puzzlers.com immediately before going to
the Cryptogram web site, which isn't www.puzzle-maniac.com.
- The solution of the puzzle at www.puzzazzles.com took 15 mins.
longer than the one at the web site Pete visited immediately
- The longest time spent on any puzzle--which wasn't spent on
the Word Search--was 45 mins.
- The puzzle Pete solved at www.puzzazzles.com wasn't a Crossword.
