Does any one have any tips for dealing with TYPE N questions. My son finds these very difficult.
These are of the following tyep:
Three of these four words are given in code. The codes are not written in the same order as the words and one code is missing.
PALM LAST ROSE MEAT
8647 1456 5437
I'd love to know the answer to this as it has got me quite stuck!
'a' (2 of) and 't' (2 of) are 4 and 7 as above
'l' (2 of) is in 1st and 3rd places so is 5
's' (2 of) is in 3rd and 3rd places, cannot be 4 or 5 so must be 3
'e' (2 of) is in 3rd and 2nd places so is 6
MEAT=*647 (so must be 8647)
If 'm' is 8, PALM should be *458 (can't be as one code is 1456)
ROSE must be the missing code - **36 - how do we get 'r' and 'o'?
I may be being dim but I cannot see it. Any answers?
