Einstein said that 98% of the world could not figure it out. I don’t think the 98% thing is accurate in this day and age, because my dad got it on the first try. I’m kidding, my dad is intelligent, but I doubt my mom could get it; it takes a certain way of thinking. If you have Excel, use that to do it. That’s my first hint. If you get it, post a comment, but check your answer to make sure there are no contradictions before you look, because I posted the answer.
