Re: Find the number!

Hi;

You sure are happy! Anymore?


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.

Re: Find the number!

IV.
My number is:
1) Nearest to 50.
2) Nearest to 7^2.
3) A prime number.
What is it?
Make sure the difference is the least so it could be nearest to 50 and 7^2.

3) Is a square number.
4) No more than 40.

Re: Find the number!

Correcto!

A long time since the last post!
9. If I have 1000 strawberries, and I give a prime number of strawberries to my brother, then I will have 977 left. How many strawberries did I give to my brother?
