I noticed a dartboard in a sports shop window recently. Three sets of darts were positioned on the board. Each set was grouped as if the darts had been thrown into adjacent numbers (eg, 5, 20, 1) with one dart from each set in a treble. There were no darts in any of the doubles or bulls.
The darts were in nine different numbers but the score for the three sets was the same. If I told you whether the score was odd or even you should be able to work out the score. The clockwise order of numbers on a dartboard is:
20 1 18 4 13 6 10 15 2 17 3 19 7 16 8 11 14 9 12 5
What was the score that all three sets of darts made? [i.e. that made by each set of three darts]
