MR. EDITOR, Several Problems proposed by me some months ago, and published in your learned Biscellany, have never since been answered by any of your numerous Correspondents; nor does it appear that any attempt whatever towards solving any of my Problems have reached your office.

Under these circumstances, I feel it my duty, in justice to my learned brethren, the Irish mathematicians, and in conformity with a solemn promise I made yourself of furnishing the Solutions (in case they remained for any length of time unanswered), to send the investigations. You'll therefore have the goodness to make room in your next Number for the solution of the first of my Problems, published in the Magazine for July last, which I send you herewith. The investigation of the other Problems of mine unanswered have particular formulae, which I inay safely aver, if once hit upon, will lead directly to the solution of the whole.

Now, Sir, as it is not my wish to perplex, but much more so to instruct and encourage juvenile talents, I propose a premium of the fifth volume of your Magazine to any of your Correspondents who shall furnish the best answers to my Problems before the first of June next, provided they bear the test of being collated with my som lutions, or in other words, if they appear to be answered conformable to rules of the Algebraic art.

The difference of every two of the Roots are evidently squares, except lil, which must be a square also. Hence this Duplicate equality.

How much to Mathematic art is due, .
Is known to none but those whom it pursue.
Here enters, Watty, in your page,
A work which did me long engage ;
By mathematic art to scan,
Or find a worthy gentleman,
Quite free from all the base alloy,
Which would a noble mind destroy.
The lower lines, when solved true,
In part the wok is done by you.
Then in the alphabet with ease,
Each letter by its number place.
To shew you're skilled in mathematics,
Go on higher than quadratics :
And then his name you'll surely find,
As well known as his generous mind.
