Good morning all, I hope you are all raring to go. smile

Today's is a wee bit tricky. I'm going to give you a hint: Think of certain types of numbers, square, triangular, prime.

I have a couple of problems for you today, just in case someone inadvertantly posts the answers.
Please try not to, as it take a bit of work to pull them together.

Feelingmyage, has a couple OF QUESTIONS in hand for emergencies, so thanks for that.

I may not have access to my PC, don't worry if I'm not back until lunch time.
