What four-digit number, when multiplied by four, equals the original number with its digits in reverse order? The challenge is to solve this puzzle only with reasoning, not with math skills. Ah, this is a little gem, readers. You can solve it with pure logic. (And maybe a bit of patience.) The answer appears at the end of the column.
Our area has ponds that hold storm water runoff, and they’re mostly dry until it rains. Once they fill with water, little fish can be seen swimming around. How do they get there? People everywhere are amazed by the seemingly magical appearance of fish in ponds that never held them (maybe). How do they get there? Sometimes they’re introduced by eggs or are inadvertently carried by waterfowl that land on the water. Heavy rains that wash water from nearby bodies of water may do the same. And in areas with regular droughts, you may find fish called mudminnows (not actually minnows), which burrow into the mud and become dormant until the next rain fills up their pools again.
