A CHARITABLE BEQUEST.





(Money Puzzles)

exactly fifty-five shillings among the poor of his parish; but they were

ways, always giving eighteenpence each to a number of women and half a
crown each to men. During how many years could the charity be
administered? Of course, by "different ways" is meant a different number
of men and women every time.
