Hi Melody
I played the logic puzzle game you told us about. I haven't figured it out yet. Its a real hard one. I made it more than 1/2 way through mostly by dumb luck. It starts over when you make one mistake.
My name is Michelle and my nick name is the same as yours its Melody . My Dad gave it to me when I was 9. Its a funny story how I got it. I like the name and some of my friends back home call me Melody. I picked Puzzled as user name because I love puzzles.
I'm glad someone solve the magic number puzzle. I wounder how long it took him. One of them took me 3 days. I probably could have done it faster if I didn't have a ton of homework.
I decided to try your new puzzle what is a number divisible by.
67960350 is divisible by
10 because of the 0 at the end (rule 2)
2 because it is even (rule 3)
It's not prime because it is even.
divisible by 5 it ends in 0
divisible by 3 if the sum of its digits is exactly divisible by 3
divisible by 9 if the sum of its digits is exactly divisible by 9
not divisible by 4 because the last 2 digits are not a multiple of 4
not divisible by 8 because the last 3 digits are not a multiple of 8.
I don't know what Zamarronics's formula is. I Googled it and all that came up was preserving love energy and other weird mumbo jumbo. No math formulas though. Does it have a different name?
I read DavidQDs divisor solution and decided to practice with it, because this is coming up in the next week or so in my class. I always read ahead in the text book.
I know your rules said not to use a calculator, but after factoring out one 2, and three 3s, and two 5s, I had 50341 left over. After dividing it by the next 10 primes I figured it might be prime so I used the calculator to test it and it is.
67960350 = 2*3^3*5^2*50341
It took me a while to do it because I was doing it backward and wrong like this.
67960350 =2*3*3*3*5*5*50341 --->1,2,2,2,4,5,5,50340
Then I thought I should have added 1 to each because I am trying to find the number of divisors a number has instead of what number has this many divisors.
67960350 =2*3*3*3*5*5*50341 --->3,4,4,4,5,6,6,50342
And that is still wrong. If not for the big number at the end I might still be doing it wrong.
That's when I thought its the exponents we count not the prime numbers.
67960350 = 2*3^3*5^2*50341 ---> 2,4,3,2 This looked much better and I remembered to add 1.
Then I multiplied the numbers to gether and got 48. So there are 48 numbers that will divide into 67960350 with
a 0 remainder. I don't know how to get the divisors though.
Now that I know there are 48 divisors I used Davids example to see if there is a smaller number that has 48 divisors.
48 = 2^4*3 =2*2*2*2*3 --> 1,1,1,1,2 ---> 2^2*3*5*7*11= 4620
48 = 2^4*3 =4*2*2*3 --> 3,1,1,2 ---> 2^3*3^2*5*7 = 2520
I stooped here because making the 2 bigger with a 4 exponent is more than the 7 it would replace.
This is so cool. I wish I could give him a big hug! I read the section in my book many times and couldn't get it. Well its an E-reader not really a book and I can print the pages if I need to. But it didn't explain it good. The $&#*#^! battery keeps going dead too.
I read his ladder answer too. I know how to do basic Trig but I don't understand this yet. I've got a loooooog way to goooooooo. Not just in math but English too. My teacher says my writing is atrocious. I laughed because my mom uses that word. It would be worse if it wasn't for spell check.
All my life everyone told me how smart I am. Now I know how dumb I can be sometimes.
When I was little my Dad told me the sun rises in the west in Australia. It was easy to get my brothers globe and picture myself standing in Australia and tell that the sun rises in the east. But he also said the water goes down the drain counter clock wise because the earths relative rotation is reversed. That was easy to see with the globe too. My Dad likes to kid and he also knows I will look things up to make sure he's rite or prove him wrong that's usually why he said these things.
But the water swirling down a drain I don't really know. I've watched a lot of drains (i like the little tornadoes) and most go clock wise but I've seen some go counter clock wise. The thing is up here the earth spins counter clock wise so I would think the water would swirl counter clock wise here and clock wise in Australia. Most people I've asked says it is opposite but weren't sure which was which. Have you ever noticed this? Or is it folklore?
Thank you
Bye for now.
Michelle a little less Puzzled, but still curious.

Here are the puzzles
They both have the same numbers, but with two different magic numbers
75,100,8,8,2,1 = 896 <-- I found the answer for this one
75,100,8,8,2,1 = 764 <-- but not this one yet

The areas of these yards will be measured in metres squared (or square metres) m2
a) I want you to tell me the area of each of the yards separately
then
b) I want you to tell me the area of both the yards put together.
You can do this a few different ways. How many ways can you think of ?
So I want the answers but I want to know how you got the answers. More than one method would be good
Big yard is 5*4 = 20 square meters
small yard is 3*5 = 15 square meters
15 + 20 square meters is 35 square meters total
or
(5+7)*5 = 35 square meters total
I thougt meters squared was different than square meters
because if it was 35 meters square then it would be 35*35 = 1225 square meters

How about this question. I am looking for 2 numbers.
they multiply to give 12 and add to give -7
what would the signs be, and what would the numbers be?
The number are
-3 + -4 = -7
-3 * -4 = -12
Should I put () around these numbers? It looks funny when I type them with out them.

(Except for Puzzle number 3 courtesy of Jedithious, which no one has solved yet. The numbers were 3,7,7,25,75,100 Magic number 734
I played with this one for a long time and still havent found an answer.
The closest I found is
(100-(25-7)/3)*7+75 = 733 only 1 so far that =733
100*7+25+7+3 = 735
(100*3+75)*7*7/25 = 735 +2 more that = 735
(100-3)*7+75+7-25 = 736
only 1 so far that =736
It mite be like the one my friend gave me that only has one answer. Ill show it to him and see what he says.

This is more fun than homework.
I try to find ones that dont need () then do others
I do them with paper then a calculator for the harder answers
I found 17 answers so far.
Here is 7 answers
50*6-10-3 = 287
50*6-10-9/3 = 287
50*(6-2)+10*9-3 = 287
10*(9*2+6)+50-3 = 287
(9*2+6)*10+50-3 = 287
These 2 are neet. same numbers but 1 divides and 1 multiplies just move the )
50*(9-6/2)-10-3 = 287
50*(9-6)*2-10-3 = 287
My friend say he has numbers that only has 1 answer. I dont know how he knows it only has one but I havent found any answers so far and its ben a week. If you want to play with them just tell me and I will list it here maybe you can find the answer.

Hard one!
The sum of a 5-term arithmetic sequence is 100. If all terms are positive integers, what is the smallest possible value for a term?
******
2 + 11 + 20 + 29 + 38 =100
(difference of 9)
possible value for a term is 2
