Solved the puzzle,
input the answer,
was turned away and made fun of.

Now what?

The answer was right -- I double-checked the math.

hmmm, the technical bods at bimbogami have been set on the trail of this one.
Turns out from a detailed check on the two identical answers you have entered, it appears you have included a leading zero-length non breaking space character in front of your answer (in the trade it's a &#65279), they suspect it may be a cut and paste problem Wink

Suggest you try typing the answer in the field, rather than pasting, and it should work fine, as you say the math is correct. Smile
