Monday's Manic Moment

OK, so a Maths Trivia, with travel and History Connections.

Multiply the Number of Children that Winston Churchill had, by the number of Hands on St Stephen's Tower. Then multiply the answer by the number of wheels on a Hansom Cab.

What is the answer?

I didn't know how many kids Winston baby had. Good for tourists to actually know what St. Stephen's Tower is since it is so photographed. I think there is only two hands on it. And I really didn't know what a Hansom cab was but now I do and that is neat. But I think the answer must be 20.

Curious ~> I was thinking that maybe there were hands carved into the stone work that I didn't even know about.

Spooky how I've been the only non Ukite to fall into Kuhals trap.
