If the combined total of their winnings was £66 – how much did they win individually?

Miss Marple preferred to buy her eggs in bulk when she visited the market. “How many did you buy this time?” asked Raymond West. “One hundred and sixty five,”Miss Marple replied. “Great Scot!” exclaimed Raymond West. “However did you carry them all?” “Easy,” replied Mrs Hudson. “I had four baskets with me. And, I might add, I carried an odd number in each basket!” Raymond West thought about this for a moment, before replying, “Poppycock, that’s impossible!” “Not so, Raymond West,” Sir Henry informed him as he gave Miss Marple a wink. How did Miss Marple do it?

To buy the shares he withdrew two-thirds of his total savings from his bank account. “It was a disaster,” he said to Sir Henry only a few weeks later. “I had to sell the shares at a loss, receiving only two- thirds of the price I had originally paid. My brief venture into the world of high finance has lowered my bank balance by £500!” How much money did Mrs Marple originally have in his bank account?


Mrs Marple and Raymond West were on the trail of two bank robbers. ‘Do we know anything about them?” asked Raymond West as they boarded the Brighton train. “Yes, Raymond West.

How is this possible?
