3. ## Fair division of sausages

I was counting whole sausages as "pieces". So it was the sum.
4. ## Fair division of sausages

So 1 cut then. Is a whole sausage considered a piece or just the partial ones? If whole sausages count, I stand by my original pieces count. If not, I think rocdocmac has it.

10. ## 12 chess pieces

Thanks Ed! I made a chessboard in Paint and put mini chess pieces in each of the squares. Erased the pieces as I went through the clues.
11. ## 12 chess pieces

Thought that wording was a bit repetitive. . .

13. ## 12 chess pieces

Is Ed's interpretation of 8 correct?

Ed
15. ## 12 chess pieces

That's quite possible, but from my interpretation, without any mention of the same row, the end refers to the whole side of the board. I will try it that way though!
16. ## 12 chess pieces

Ok. Can you tell me which of the clues my answer violates?
17. ## 12 chess pieces

Seems like there could be multiple answers from my interpretation of the clues.
18. ## 12 chess pieces

Think I figured out my problem. What is the definition of adjacent? Sharing edges? Diagonal squares?
19. ## 12 chess pieces

If the black queen is on the extreme east per clue 8 (N,S,W spaces adjacent), and alone in her column per clue 12, that leaves only the W space to put both the pawn and bishop mentioned in clue 8. Should it maybe read the queen is alone in her own row?
20. ## 12 chess pieces

6 and 16 also seem to contradict as d5 is a white space according to the pictures I'm finding of notation.
21. ## 12 chess pieces

For number 8, does that mean the black queen is on the opposite E-W extreme or just opposite half? Or can it potentially refer to N-S? Number 12 would seem to contradict that if it means the E-W extreme.

24. ## Ages of brothers

Assuming coming of age means 18...
25. ## shuffling algorithm for letters in a word

It looks like you're taking the first letter and essentially rotating it through the different positions while the other letters remain in the same order. I noticed that all the possible permutations begin with two letters that were next to each other in the original sequence (or in the first and last spot). For example, I don't think you can get a sequence starting with AC. So this does not seem to hold up.
