On-Air Challenge

This week's on-air puzzle is an extension of last week's challenge in which a group of letters and symbols represent a familiar word or phrase.

Last Week's Challenge

Write down the number "100." Underneath it write "100/500." How the numbers align doesn't matter. What U.S. city does this represent?

Winner: Joan Suits of Houghton, Mich.
