# Lucky Seven

by Kevin J. Lin

Here are seven tricky puzzletts, all dealing in some way with your friend, the
number. Some are simple algebra problems, others involve numbers and logic, and a
few wander completely out of the bounds of mathematics altogether into obscure trivia.

Unlike most of our puzzles, we allowed people to submit answers to this puzzle
collection. Please note that for any puzzle where we want people to send in their
solutions, we will note it in the puzzle.
