Apparently someone on the British iteration of "The Price Is Right."

But why are you posting this? Is this an actual part of the first District question?

Isn't this the name of the person who runs Questions Galore? At least I seem to remember hearing that name discussed here before.

Well done Matt!

No, it is not really the first question in districts.

It was my idea of a "fun question" with tomorrow's questions less than 24 hours away.

Question 3: Simplify radical 20.

Question 4: The city of Gdansk is located in this country along the Baltic Sea. If 2/3 of its citizens are members of the Solidarity Labor Union, how many of the people in Latvia have children playing soccer?

Question 5: Benjamin Franklin was the seventeenth of nineteen children. What were the names of all of his brothers and sisters?

Question 6: Plus or minus five, how many stars are in the galaxy known as Andromeda?

Question 7: Identify the high school that Sirhan Sirhan graduated from.

Question 8: What is Sirhan Sirhan's middle name?

Question 9: What was the name of Sirhan Sirhan's identical twin?

Question 10: Sirhan Sirhan shot and killed Bobby Kennedy in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. If rooms in that hotel cost 65 dollars each, how many people were staying there if the motel was full?


Sorry, I can't release any more questions from the district competition. I don't want to influence the battle between NKC and Liberty any more than I already have.

Correction: Express your answer as a decimal. Make sure you multiply by pi and e.
