Middle weight? I seem to remember the categories are rather limited.

All correct, though 4 is actually Light Flyweight, but close enough.

This is a bit of an interactive quiz. I know a rule that can be applied to any three numbers and gives a yes or no answer.

I will give two examples, and give the correct answer (yes or no) to any examples the rest of you post. I'll try to give feedback as quickly as possible, which I should be able to do with the weekend coming up.

You must try to guess what my rule is, but no-one gets more than one guess, so don't guess until you're sure!

Two examples:

2, 4, 16: Yes
1, 1, 1: Yes

So - post your sets of three numbers (up to three sets per post) and let's see who works out my rule first!
