The Unreadable Account

Much Thanks to Bilbao for submitting this!

Among certain accounts, partially blurred, the following can be read: ‘The amount paid for 72 cows was …670…dollars’. Two figures, the first and the last, are unreadable. It is known that every cow had the same price (no decimal places). How much was paid for each cow and altogether?

Answers to this challenge can be entered into the section below; submissions will automatically be revealed when time is up!

    RK, What happened to emoticons?


    Not having the emoticons displayed could twist the tone of a statement from a simple joke to a flame.

    It is a testament to the class of the posters on this site that nobody’s guesses involved testicular trauma. I thank you. ;)

    Hi there Hex, the emoticons are still available, but you have to hand select them with mouse from the ‘add emoticons’. Someone said the typed versions were causing problems, so just had the programmer remove.

    I selected the >:> from the emoticons with the mouse, but I may have deleted some spaces??
