Mrs. Campbell's class saw this puzzle from Melissa in South Africa and took up the challenge!

This is my :

Times the number of colours in the South African flag by the number of players in a cricket team. Add the number of bastions around the castle in Cape Town and you will find the number that I am thinking of.

Dear Melissa,

We are a 1st grade class in the USA. We are age 6, 7, and 8. We liked your puzzle. We had a hard time finding out the answer because we didn't know the colors of your flag or what cricket is, or what the castle looks like. So, we went on the web and found a picture of your flag. Then we counted the colors. Then we went to the library and used the encyclopedia to find out what cricket was-it's a lot like baseball. Then Our friend, Mrs. Weeg helped us use the web to find the castle and count the bastions. So the math problem is 6x11+5=71. We didn't know how to multiply so we just added 11, 6 times, we got 66 then we added 5 and we got 71!!!!! WOW! That was HARD!! Can you send us an easier puzzle please???
