Piece of pie chart? That does not sound delicious at all. 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.

Re: Lockers Maths PuzzleEasy as pie chart! You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #13 20121127 07:13:47
Re: Lockers Maths PuzzleImpressive, indeed. But, why haven't you posted your idea?

Re: Lockers Maths PuzzleThank you. It is a new policy of mine. If the OP remains silent then I keep my answer to myself. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #15 20121127 08:22:05
Re: Lockers Maths PuzzleI can see why you would do that... But, do you really think that there will be an improvement in the response of OPs?

Re: Lockers Maths Puzzle
No it probably won't. But it will help to stop me getting annoyed when I've spent time on a problem and typing it up and then [blank]
But we know you'll never tell that. btw. I'm still working on Phrontister's puzzle. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #18 20121127 08:57:59
Re: Lockers Maths PuzzlePhrontister is brilliant but standing upside for his entire 28 years has affected his judgement. He believes that he saw me in 1904 at the fair.

Re: Lockers Maths Puzzle
No! No! No! Closure is closure!!
Btw, I improved my C1 formula in my post #9 by removing a duplication, making it more succinct. I'm glad I spotted this now before the OP did. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson
