THE CENTURY PUZZLE.





(Money Puzzles)
Can you write 100 in the form of a mixed number, using all the nine
digits once, and only once? The late distinguished French mathematician,
Edouard Lucas, found seven different ways of doing it, and expressed his
doubts as to there being any other ways. As a matter of fact there are
just eleven ways and no more. Here is one of them, 91+5742/638. Nine of
the other ways have similarly two figures in the integral part of the
number, but the eleventh expression has only one figure there. Can the
reader find this last form?
