    Here's a fairly simple puzzler...

    What is the square root of bread?

    Keep in mind that this is not a joke, and that the answer does in fact have a numerical value that can be calculated if you think about it long enough.


    Edit: If no one can figure it out, I shall post a hint to get you started...

    Well, the first possibility is that the letters stand for numbers. No, that doesn't work because r would have two digits. Well, let's do it anyway.

    Bread = 218514 or 2*18*5*1*4

    Or would that be the cube root?

    Since it is apparent that V(bread) = (2+18+5+1+4) = 30

    the square root of 30 = approx 5.48

    Unless this is some fishy kernal of wheat wordplay type thingie.

    You're getting extremely close, but you're solving it wrong...

    Could it be:
    2 x 18 x 5 x 1 x 4 = 720

    The answer being the square root of 720 which is 26.833

    If it's ascii values, it is
    98 114 101 97 100

    sqrt of their product is 104619.35

    sqrt of their sum is 22.58317958

    Bread = 2 + 18 + 5 + 4 + 1

    could 18 mean 1 + 8 instead of 18?

    Is it bread = 218514,
    sqrt(bread) = 467.45481?
