Topic: Math problem

Don't submit your answer... when you've solved it, you will know.... Tell everyone that you got it, but let them solve it for themselves... it will give people more satisfaction...

All they have to do is put more lesbians in it, and it will become great!

Sounds perfect for this problem... Preschoolers who know no math at all can solve it...

What kind of answer thread is this?!  sad

Re: Math problem

If you want the answer, come in to chat and find me, I'll tell you.  I won't tell you how I got the answer, but just the answer itself.

Re: Math problem

i had to cheat and ask google about it and found the solution, its so stupid!

Re: Math problem

So it was quite easy to figure out that the numbers symbolized a different value but it was trickier to figure out why.

0=1
1=0
2=0
3=0
4=1
5=0
6=1
7=0
8=2
9=1

Figuring out why they were worth those values were harder.

Re: Math problem

I bet a preschooler.. wouldn't see that, though. If you printed out the numbers on a piece of paper and told a preschooler to complete the last one, do you honestly expect them to solve it in 10 minutes? If you say yes, let's actually test it.

If a preschooler has no notion of symbols for numbers, how will they figure out the pattern? If they do, they will have no advantage. Preschoolers are not very patient with riddles.

Also: Mxy, calling this a "math problem" is like time travel in Lost, it breaks its own internal rules and that is cheating.
