Good morning class. You know the drill.

Another algebraic equation for you to solve.
PM if you would like a mention on the thread.

I am looking for the values for:
Pineapple
Grapes
Watermelon
Strawberry


To receive an apple you need to answer the whole question. wink

I won't be back until much later to answer PMs.

Good morning Miss I hav to go owt for a cupple ov howrs 🚙 but wil be bak to giv it a twy mid-mawnin.

Pittcity Thu 18-Jun-20 09:28:47

A wink in the question.
Hmmmmm.......

Marydoll Thu 18-Jun-20 09:29:59

I have thought long and hard about this and I don't want to spoil the thread, however, I would like to clarify a few things.

I do enjoy setting the questions, it's as much for my benefit, as it it for others.
Most posters are lovely and I appreciate your kind comments.
However, there have been a few snippy comments to me sad in PMs about the questions being too easy or too difficult and various other complaints.
This thread was meant to be a bit of fun.

I am trying to please a wide audience, but I can't always get it right and please all of the people all of the time. I do not have a maths degree!
You do have to give me marks for trying my best!

The lack of certificates: I had decided to award a golden apple in lieu of a certificate, as posting a certificate, means making it, putting a poster's name on it, then changing it to a jpeg on another program before posting.
I shot myself in the foot there, as that takes time.

Now the serious side is over, do your worst!

The puzzle picture is an eight letter word
A hint: you may find it in water.

I will come back later with more hints. It's quite tricky.
It looks like a strawberry, but it's not! grin

Grannynannywanny Thu 18-Jun-20 09:38:32

Marydoll that’s not fair if you’re having snippy PMs about the questions. I have only discovered this thread in recent weeks and it’s been more than a bit of fun.

It has cheered up gloomy days and the banter has reduced me to tears of laughter on a daily basis.
Thank you Miss and oll mine frends 💐💐

Thank you Marydoll for all the work you put into these threads - I know all of us 'gurls' really appreciate it! Those complainers should be ashamed of themselves angry

Marydoll I’m really sad you have had snippy PMs about this thread.
Most of us know how ill you’ve been and the pain you are in most days. We are truly grateful you make the effort to entertain us in this lockdown. Some of the puzzles are easy and some difficult as you say it’s a bit of fun.
There are many many other games threads. If someone doesn’t like this one let them start their own or go on the others. This thread has brought together many of us who didn’t know each other before, we’ve had huge laughs and giggles and we are truly grateful to you.

I’m fizzing with anger Marydoll. The bloody cheek of some people! You have given up your time every day preparing a light hearted, terrific thread, which many of us appreciate. Thank you💐

For those realising the thread isn’t tailor made to your liking may I suggest you join another thread which is. Good luck with that search!

Puzzler61 Thu 18-Jun-20 11:34:10

Miss Mary I’m shocked too.
I love the atmosphere of the classroom and appreciate the effort you go to each day regardless of how you feel. A big THANK YOU. It’s a thread of F U N. The complainers would be doing us all a favour to go elsewhere.
💐 💖

Callistemon Thu 18-Jun-20 12:04:10

Oh, for goodness' sake, what is the matter with some people!

I feel cross that people are sending nasty pms to you Marydoll. Have they got nothing better to do than complain and moan?
Tell them to get proactive and start their own bloomin' threads with complex quadratic equations if they wish.

We're happy with *MissMarydoll's' puzzles.
We're not at work now.
