My dear cousin, Ellen Hetland Fenwick, presented a mathematics & logic puzzle for my perusal and opinion. I expressed what seemed the logical answer, then added: why am I thinking there’s some trick to this?

What do you think is the answer? Do you think there is some trick? If there is a trick, can you explain what it is? Ellen loves comments. Please include them in the comments section associated with this article.  Here, then, is “A Curious Puzzle” by Ellen Hetland Fenwick.
