************************************* MathMagic Cycle 18: Level 7-9 Regular ************************************* A grandfather clock at my in-laws is known to loose 7 minutes every hour. On a Sunday, about a month ago I noticed that it was EXACTLY three minutes slow- to the second. Later that month, and much to my surprise, the clock was EXACTLY at the right time. My father-in-law remarked that he had done nothing to adjust the clock, and I knew he hadn't. Work with your NTPs to figure out what day of the week was my second visit. ************************************** MathMagic Cycle 18: Level 7-9 Advanced ************************************** Using the numbers 1 9 9 2 in a "locked" position, can you develop a 31 day calendar for the month of October? You can use addition (+), subtraction (-), multiplication (*), division (/) exponents (^) factorial (!) square root (sqrt) and, naturally, parenthesis ( ). Example: Friday the 13th could be: (1+sqrt(9))!-9-2 (Scary, isn't it?) (Notice that the numbers appear in the "locked" sequence) ================== Good luck MrH
