Hello...newbie wants to learn how to make a really cool math puzzle.

Hi.

I'm building a puzzle site and constructing puzzles, riddles, ciphers...

Joined to learn about ideas that I've not considered yet...maybe give an idea or two here and there.

Hi AdamKralic;

Welcome to the forum!


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Ok,I was thinking something but that's not it. But your surname sure is rare.

It's Hungarian. I've never been there myself...but after a looksie.. on family tree type sites...it does appear that 9 is our number.

Oddly enough there are a few Aussie Kralics. They too originated in Hungary.

I've had Hungarian food...it's not bad at all...don't see what the rush to split the family in half was. (and to split them to the opposite sides of the planet at that)
Maybe there was a big argument over something of little importance...

lolz. Hopefully my American half won the argument.
