Here it is: My second annual birthday puzzle. It's a puzzle to celebrate
the fact that I'm turning 29 on the 19th. Again. No, really! Okay, I
admit it, I'm in denial, particularly when it comes to numbers. For a
while there it affected every single digit I wrote so that none of
them were correct (see "Bad Math" on the WPC qualifying test), but now it
only affects every 2 and 9 I write. Anyway, I have another long division
problem for you:
222
------
22)22222
22
222
222
Oops - it's happening again! Not only cannot I not write the right digits
down, I can't write the wrong digits down right either. Two of those
digits were supposed to be 9's, in which case every last digit would be
incorrect and the correct division could be uniquely determined. Given
that information, can you determine the correct division anyway?
