Tree frogs keep a steady chorus of peeps ringing throughout the rain forest
- and they are one of the animals that keep insects from taking over the
world! Here's a fun puzzler (taken from 'The Song of the Harpy Eagle'):
How many peeps could three tree frogs peep if three tree frogs could peep
without sleep from three P.M. to three P.M again, at three peeps per second
each? Peep-peep- peep. Have fun fee-guring it out peeper-keepers! And, just
for fun, what's the smallest positive number you could add to the answer
to make a number that is made of all the same digit?
