I've just sent an email with my answers now, hope it's not too late . . . or a duplicate! :roll:

Oook!

Grace, can't you check your email's Sent/Outbox?

Also, I would imagine that as long as the answers are the same, a duplication shouldn't be a problem* - it's if you try sending different answers a bunch of times that should be a problem. At least, that's what I think.

:D All is well, I got my answers in in time and Steve confirmed that it wasn't a duplicate - so thank Om he put a reminder on the Forum!! I don't think I've got all the answers right, mind you, but still would have been gutted to have missed entering, but got them in by the skin of Offler's teeth :wink:

The article finishes with "Are there any other shapes that can be used for stamps?"

The answer is part of Combinatorics, a branch of mathematics.

But to be honest, having just spent a year doing the Open University course on this, a good eye is most likely the best help. :)

Let alone the cost of backfilling a collection from 2009!

^^^ What she said! I back filled my collection slowly over a couple of years, which helped spread the cost . . . or at least helped me stay in denial about the overall total :wink:
