      Feynman Long Division Puzzles
      Physicist Richard Feynman sent the following puzzle for his father attached to a letter to his mother in 1939.Each digit of a long division has been replaced by a dot or the letter A . None of the dots are the same as the A digit. The goal is to reconstruct the original figures...
