Brain Twizzlers
BY PROF. J. D. FLINT.
JT SEEMS sometimes as though art
ists are creatures of another world,
but that is a delicate subject when the
illustrator of Brain Twizzlers is in
volved, so we’ll soft-pedal on today’s
problem of a number of temperamental
artists who took as many days as
there were artists to complete a job. If
there had been six more artists, they
would have completed the job in one
day. From this information, you can
figure out how many artists were work
ing on the Job even if you are tem
peramental or an artist or both your
self.
