      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location

      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    For many, mathematics is a scary subject that they have been taught to hate right from their childhood. The subject is often termed as hard and tedious, and people hardly take the time to delve into its formulae and theories.

    Mathematics can be fun, though, when approached in the right way. This puzzle book shows its readers delightful ways in which they can tease their brains and make them work, through solving some very interesting maths problems. Puzzles to Puzzle You features exciting and intriguing mathematical puzzles that will help readers sharpen their maths skills in a fun way.

    The puzzles here are devised and presented by Shakuntala Devi, the well-known mathematical genius from India. Matching wits with the genius and trying to solve the puzzles can be a very interesting and productive activity, especially for students, children, and professionals.

    This book is designed in such a way that the given problems can be solved numerically, rather than logically. Puzzles To Puzzle You can be used as a preparation guide by readers who have to appear for general tests and examinations that feature a quantitative section. It can also be used by people who are appearing for public service exams.

    Decent puzlle book, with some really nice mathematical puzzles.

    I ordered it on Thursday and got in on Monday, i.e., in three working days. Nicely packed and in due time. It's a decent puzzle book that has mathematical puzzles. It doesn't contain puzzles with lame and stupid tricks to fool you. Instead there are certain fixed (but not limited) ways to solve a problem. Good Book for someone who has interest in applied mathematics. Not for someone who hates mathematics and is more interested in logical puzzle solving. For that, I'll recommend Puzzles and Te...

    About this puzzle book

    I have bought this book very long ago, but spent time reading it recently. This is a very good book. I expect puzzles to be twisting and giving food for thought but not too assuming.

    Almost all the questions are very good except few which might have multiple solutions and some questions pose to give insufficient data to solve the problem. In such cases assumption is required at higher levels and can be solved by hit and trial methods. Few questions in this book can be solved by direct frami...

    Book Title must be Math Puzzles

    Good things puzzles are not nonsensical and are not made to deceive.

    I handle the book with care but in this book some pages are coming out,

    If u r a puzzle lover I bet that there will be less question which would be new to u.

    If u have read some foreign author's book u may get the same question in the same word and in the same unit.

    and if u haven't read any puzzle book it is good to start from this.
