The ratio of the boiler's age now to the ship's age now is what? What English word contains all the vowels, in alphabetical order? What is the three-digit number that can be made from the digits 2, 3, 5, and 7 where no two digits in the three-digit number are alike, and where the three-digit number is a multiple of each of the digits chosen? Stumped? Dr. Gruber reveals the fascinating explanations and detailed strategies for solving even the trickiest problems using his exclusive Gruber Method.
