Scrooge McDuck in Mathmagic land

A sympathetic story for you this Saturday.

Andy has a problem. He can’t solve it on his own – he needs your help. This problem vexed Andy so much that he spent four years trying to solve it on his own, to no avail. It really is a very difficult problem. Finally in 1997, out of what must have been sheer desperation, Andy reached out to his fellow man: maybe some kindly type out there could find a solution to his problem, which he would gladly reward with a small consideration.

Can you help a soul in need?
