>>Google ?
Aww I'm hurt - that's where I get all my tech solutions ;)
(I have a pure math qualification & both of these are well known - 'B' I know by heart - yes, afraid so!)
Have checked though and they are on Google too.

Miss those wordy riddles - perhaps I will have to try to make something up ...
