Subject: Pink Wooden Block?
   When I looked at this puzzle this morning I copied it to work on. When I
   looked later for the answer I could not understand it at all My answer was
   186. I re read the puzzle and the whole thing was different.This is the set
   of numbers I saw this morning.
   A block of wood in the form of a cuboid 3" x 7" x 11" has all its six faces
   painted pink. If the wooden block is cut into 231 cubes of 1" x 1" x 1", how
   many of these would have pink paint on them? 
    What happened? I am sure I am not hallucinating this.
