         Similarly on Survivor,

        1. The first bag contains ten number tiles that need to be put in order on the puzzle table. (1 to 10)
        2. There are twenty number pieces in the second bag from 11 to 30.
        3. Laura M. maintains her lead as she finishes her third bag (31 to 60)
        4. Laura M. then retrieves and starts work on her fourth and final bag, which contains tiles 61 through 100.

        100 =10+20+30+40
