    what is the following answer to this quesion: the sum of two numbers is 14. the first number is 4 less than twice the second number. what is the product of the two number?

    • nunu Says:

      @tirzo: it is 4 less than twice the number of letters in english alphabet

      @pawan: first 101 numbers not 100 🙂 and for 16, it is actually x^y = y^x
