Got it. I have to wonder if the 98% thing refers to people who don't write it out.

Well there is the 0.0000001% of autistic people that can do it without even writing it out, but I don't think that counts.

I think the 98% thing is for people who don't even try to solve it. And now I've learned that it can't even be attributed to Einstein, so .... whatever.

I drew the grid, worked on it some, decided the grid wasn't enough, and started over with a larger grid. So there!

Can't we just be happy that we're in the top 2 percentile without turning this into a competition?

I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed to do a chart... That makes it really easy.

It's all a matter of comprehending the information given to you, and writing it down.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

How can you make 30p with 2 coins if one of them isn't a 20p?

I don't know your British currency but I'll assume 20p and 10p.

Similar one for US currency, 2 coins make 30 cents, one of them isn't a nickel.

The answer is:

A quarter and a nickel.
