Re: New Puzzles 5I disagree with the number alphabet puzzle's solution. You can write myriad with the letters. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #3 20121008 00:00:40
Re: New Puzzles 5Hi MIF; For "Mince Pie Madness" that is the correct solution. You solve it using this equation. p = 109 In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20121008 08:08:32

Nice! Also "many", "lots" and "heaps". "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #5 20121008 08:19:21

Well, unlike "heaps" and "many" and such, "myriad" is an actual number.
