# Fund Raising Fun Puzzle - Solution

### The Puzzle:

Hungry Horace recently went on a Sponsored Walk to raise funds for new equipment at the local Hospital. His sponsor form looked like this:

Altogether Horace collected $22.00 from his sponsors. How far did he walk?

Sponsor's Name | Amount Per km | Total |
---|---|---|

Fat Freda | 10c | |

Dim Jim | 15c | |

Tall Tanya | $3 | |

Silly Cilla | 5c | |

C.U.Jimmy | 5c | |

Albert Bodge | $2.50 | |

Roland Heap | 20c | |

Nice Nigel | $4.50 | |

Merlin Shriek | 20c | |

Carol Singer | 25c |

Altogether Horace collected $22.00 from his sponsors. How far did he walk?

### Our Solution:

Altogether Horace collected $22.00 from his sponsors. $10.00 of that came from Tanya, Albert and Nigel, so that means the others paid him $12.00. Adding up the Amount Per km column we see that Horace was sponsored $1.00 per km altogether. That means he walked 12 km to raise his $12.00, giving him the required $22.00 in total.
