Kuenzi, N. J.; Prielipp, Bob
This booklet is a collection of 45 problems that have appeared in the Problem Department of the journal "School Science and Mathematics." The booklet is divided into four parts. The first part presents 20 cryptarithms, puzzles in which letters or symbols are substituted for the digits in an arithmetical calculation, that require knowledge of arithmetic and some degree of ingenuity to solve. The second part is called arithmetical pastimes and presents 25 problems requiring some facility with algebra. The two sections include hints and/or answers to the problems. Complete solutions as they were appeared in the journal are reprinted in the final two parts of the booklet. The number of the problem and month and year of publication are given for each problem.
