process of eliminationhere is a puzzle: 0 can be nothing and something. 0 #2 20070103 08:41:15
Re: process of eliminationI could find perfectly valid reasons which differ from yours. Heck, I say that all the evens are connected. Perhaps you need to specify a little more about what you mean by "connected". "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #3 20070103 08:59:12
Re: process of eliminationSo, there is a "master" number somewhere in the list, and we should eliminate all numbers not connected to it? "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #4 20070103 09:49:49
Re: process of eliminationWell, so far I think the master number is 67, because it is neither a multiple or factor of any other number. What do you think? #5 20070104 00:09:51
Re: process of eliminationAlright then, let me make it a little more clear. Study every single number in the list indepentely. This is the the way to come to your answer. 0 can be nothing and something. 0 #6 20070104 01:06:32
Re: process of eliminationI think the master number is 3 because a lot of them are multiples of 3 so you eliminate the numbers that aren't multiples of 3. Dreams don't come true, you gotta make them come true. #7 20070129 19:50:00
Re: process of eliminationFor the record, I beleive the there are two numbers to eliminate  67 & 34.
