## A PRINTER'S ERROR.

(

Money Puzzles)

In a certain article a printer had to set up the figures 5^4x2^3, which,

of course, means that the fourth power of 5 (625) is to be multiplied by

the cube of 2 (8), the product of which is 5,000. But he printed 5^4x2^3

as 5 4 2 3, which is not correct. Can you place four digits in the

manner shown, so that it will be equally correct if the printer sets it

up aright or makes the same blunder?

## Answer:

The answer is that 2^5 .9^2 is the same as 2592, and this is the only

possible solution to the puzzle.
