In 2006, Math Horizons challenged its readers to pose a problem in such a way that it contained its own answer. Rheta Rubenstein of the University of Michigan-Dearborn offered a pair of questions that answer one another:
- What fraction of the letters in three-eighths are vowels?
- What fraction of the letters in one-third are vowels?
