I am having trouble wih the puzzel from the May 2008 puzzel on page 7 clled Mysterios foot prints. I can get teh numbers to add up but you would have to go back across the 7 on puzzel #1. I belive teh order is 3 7 11 9 5 4 5 10 to equal 54.

Thank you for your posting. We have reviewed Mysterious FootPrints in the May 2008 issue of Dell Math Puzzles and Logic Problems and found the correct order of the numbers to be "3 7 11 4 9 5 5 10." In your list of  numbers, it is impossible to go from 9 to 5 to 4 without skipping over a Footstep. I hope this addresses your  concerns and please feel free to write back with any other questions or comments you may  have. Best wishes.
