# Prize crossnumber, Issue 12

£100 of MathsGear goodies to be won if you can solve it

Our original prize crossnumber is featured on pages 56 and 57 of Issue 12.

### Rules

• One randomly selected correct answer will win a £100 Maths Gear goody bag, including non-transitive dice, a Festival of the Spoken Nerd DVD, and much, much more. Three randomly selected runners up will win a Chalkdust T-shirt. Maths Gear is a website that sells nerdy things worldwide, with free UK shipping.
