Date: 03/12/2001 at 21:27:41 From: Lindsay Fedie Subject: Math riddle Hap, the crossing guard, is very popular with the students at Springdale Elementary. Along with his usual morning smile, Hap has a daily riddle. One of his favorites was this one: How do 5 and 9 more make 2? We think the answer has something to do with 14, but we can not figure any of the problem out. Please help!
