Re: PuzzleNumber of keys on a phone keypad: 12 "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..." #4 20060209 18:07:47
Re: PuzzleHmm... but numbers on a phone keypad: 10 #5 20060210 04:00:09
Re: Puzzle214. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #6 20060210 11:49:53

Re: Puzzle0 is a number on your keypad. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 Equalates to 10 numbers. 214 is the only logical answer currently. Neither hash nor star are numbers. A quartet can only contain four memebers; lest it become a quintet with 5 or a triplet with 3. A century is 100, no question, years. There are obviously only 100 pence in a single pound (sterling); as the system works using a centographic system. Boy let me tell you what: I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too. And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you. #9 20060215 11:29:08
Re: PuzzleHi the answer turned out to be 10,864.These puzzles are doing my head in .They have just started a new one. #10 20060215 12:04:39
Re: Puzzleyou need to add the roman numerals, hexidecimal values and the arabic numbers. #12 20060216 16:55:26
Re: PuzzleOK, maybe we are just missing the hex numbers: "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #13 20060217 00:21:20

Re: PuzzleThis comp is still going as no one can solve it,can anyone please come up with a number different than 6699.The prize money is going up too. #17 20060227 10:14:48

Re: PuzzleThey do these competitions every couple of days and they never explain how they get their answer the way they see it if they explain it would not be as much fun and everyone would know the answer.I used roman numerals and the highest i could get was 6699.So they could use anything to get to their answer. #21 20060228 13:17:19
Re: PuzzleThe puzzle that has just finished (answer 7894) is, of course, designed to make money for the organisers, so it isnt going to be simple! It is designed to be extremely cryptic. #22 20060301 13:43:46
Re: PuzzleThey have started a new one. #23 20060302 00:29:44
Re: PuzzleAngelEyes, if my logic is anywhere near correct, the answer is 10,305 or somewhere close to that. This is based on all of the roman numerals as they stand individually plus: #24 20060302 00:38:36
Re: PuzzleIsn't it possible that it means all the numbers that make up the number. Friends are angels who lift our feet when our own wings have trouble remembering how to fly #25 20060302 00:39:31
