Yes! That's the third "traditional" name. They have lots of other names too, and come to that, the Bible never says that there are three! But that'll do.

One point to Iznogood

Since I have a reputation to keep up.

The thirteen dwarves, including those already named:
Thorin, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Ori, Nori, Dori, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur and Bombur

Wizards: five. Gandalf, Saruman, Radagast, and the two Blue Wizards.
Yes. Eight points for the dwarves. One point for five wizards. Three bonus points for the common names of three of the wizards.

12 points to Shayne.

Summary:

5 points to HIMS.
15 points for orlok.
1 point to Iznogood
1 point to red_phoenix
12 points to Shayne

Unanswered questions:
The number of monros. Still five points on offer for being within 5. Surely worth a guess or two.

Bonus points still available:
More Stooges.

I think it's time to declare a winner.

With 15 points, it's orlok!

There are 282 Munros, and 227 "subsidiary tops".

In addition the main three, Moe, Larry and Curly, and the other one of the original line-up, Shemp, in later years there was also Joe Besser, Joe DeRita and Emil Sitka.

Over to you, orlok!

Ok, in keeping with the maths questions of late, here's one that combines numbers AND letters...

Some letter blocks have been put together to spell out the following sum:

ONE + TWELVE = THIRTEEN

Using all these blocks, rearrange some of them to get a different sum, which is also correct.

Then replace the I with the E and insert another "+" block. By rearranging the blocks again, once more another correct result can be achieved.

Can you find the two new versions of the equations?

I can barely read the equations!

How sinister ... a maths question disguised with letters ....

It's almost as nefarious as when they throw in apples, oranges, and melons...

If this is actually supposed to be different addends and not a different sum, the answers are 2 + 11 = 13 and 2 + 11 = 3 + 10. If you did mean different sum, then I don't know.

Correct! The answer in letters is:

TWO + ELEVEN = THIRTEEN
TWO + ELEVEN = THREE + TEN

Over to our new contestant BaenSidhe - pose us a question if you will?

'TWO + ELEVEN' is also an anagram of 'ONE + TWELVE' (I know that wasn't the question, but I've always thought it was a cool coincidence).

Two people enter an empty room.
After four hours, one person leaves the room, but that still leaves two people in the room.

How?
