Brain Game: 10 Q, You're Welcome
If yesterday's Brain Game was quick and dirty, today's offering is neither of those. Regulars to our weekday mental workout know I like playing with numbers and letters, and this puzzle came about during one of those "let'sseewhathappensifIdothis" sessions.
I didn't notice any particular pattern to the answers, which I found interesting. (I know, thanks anyway, but I do have a life. Really.)Â You should be able to answer questions #1 and #2 fairly quickly. From there, it gets a bit hairy. Good luck!
NOTE: Since this puzzle was originally posted, kind readers submitted two additional correct answers that were inadvertently left off the original list. Thanks for that!
PLEASE PARDON THE SHOUTING, BUTÂ HERE AREÂ THREEÂ IMPORTANT RULES:

Today's Brain Game deals ONLY with the numbersÂ ONE through NINETYNINE.

Hyphens and spaces do NOT count as letters.

We're looking for the total number of letters, not the number of different letters.
1. What number has a valueÂ EQUAL to the total number of letters used to spell it?
2. What two numbers have a value of exactly TWICE the total number of letters used to spell them?
3. What number has a value of exactlyÂ THREE TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell it?
4. What number has a value of exactlyÂ FOUR TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell it?
5. What two numbers have a value of exactlyÂ FIVE TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell them?
6. What number has a value of exactlyÂ SIX TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell it?
7. What number has a value of exactlyÂ SEVEN TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell it?
8. What two numbers have a value of exactlyÂ EIGHT TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell them?
9. What number has a value of exactlyÂ NINE TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell it?
10. What two numbers have a value of exactlyÂ TEN TIMESÂ the total number of letters used to spell them?
THE ANSWERS:
1. FOUR (4 letters)
2. SIX (3 letters x 2 = 6) and TWELVE (6 letters x 2 = 12)
3. THIRTYTHREE (11 letters x 3 = 33)
4. THIRTYSIX (9 letters x 4 = 36)
5. THIRTY (6 letters x 5 = 30) and FORTYFIVE (9 letters x 5 = 45)
6. FIFTYFOUR (9 letters x 6 = 54)
7. FIFTYSIX (8 letters x 7 = 56)
8. FORTY (5 letters x 8 = 40) and EIGHTYEIGHT (11 letters x 8 = 88)
9. EIGHTYONE (9 letters x 9 = 81)
10. FIFTY (5 letters x 10 = 50) and SEVENTY (7Â letters x 10 =Â 70)
