I make that 50.75 - I guess you mean ((100x50+75)/25)x2x2

You don't need the brackets after the 25. Doesn't division take place before multiplication?

Yeah, you don't need the extra brackets. It was a fairly standard 4-large solve so I was surprised Rachel didn't get it. I got it after the time and was kicking myself but I don't practise 4-large.

But minus points to Rhys for not adding the = 812. It might sometimes be obvious but generally it makes it much easier to quickly see which round someone is referring to without having to work through someone's method yourself.

I see we're back to 8-letter teasers.

Was the "Round 3" not obvious enough?

No. People don't necessarily remember the round numbers that go with each target, or even what the specific targets were.

Edit - I'm not picking on you in particular. I was thinking of mentioning this more generally anyway (e.g. in the "People you shouldn't trust" thread) but then this opportunity came up.
