As I sat down to pay some bills this month, a total figure just less than $1500 dollars, I noticed a peculiar relationship. The square root of my mortgage, the electric bill divided by two, the phone bill minus two, the cable bill plus two, the trash collector’s bill times two and the paperboy’s take squared where all the same figure. In even dollars, no cents, of course.

How much were the bills?
