1. A troop of scouts is taking a bus to a camping ground. They have each been given a new canteen. The scoutmaster has allocated supervision of the canteens to scout no. 5. They line up and count from the left. Scout no. 5 is Charlie, and he protests that he had this chore at the last camp. So the scoutmaster agrees that scout no. 5 counting from the right will get the job. It's still Charlie, so he's stuck with it.
Charlie sits at the rear of the bus, with the box of canteens beside him. He notices that the canteens are stamped with consecutive serial numbers. He amuses himself by adding them up. They total 10026. Announcing this, he challenges the other scouts to tell him the highest of the serial numbers.
What is it?
2. There is a year, in the not too distant past, that when divided by 2, and the result turned upside down and divided by 3, and that result left as it is and divided by 2, and that result turned upside down, gives the answer 191. What's the year?
