dice puzzleYou have a 6sided dice with numbers on each side. 5 of the sides have 1 on them and 1 of the sides has 6 on it. The sides are also given letters which are A, B, C, D, E and F. I haven't said which letters correspond to which numbers. List all possible number and letter combinations the dice could have. Tip: Don't rush into it. Think. 0 can be nothing and something. 0 #2 20070104 06:16:12
Re: dice puzzleWell, I think in terms of combinatorics its But then it is slightly ambiguous and probably a trick question so I will have to look closer #3 20070104 08:40:33
Re: dice puzzleThe question is indeed ambiguous. This is the way I interpreted it: Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20070104 09:31:29

Re: dice puzzleActually it's not because each 1 is a different face of the dice.I think you should think of a normal dice. Dreams don't come true, you gotta make them come true. #6 20070106 04:34:04
Re: dice puzzle
You've confused me with that statement, is the '1' used after the first '1' just part of txtspk? #7 20070108 09:39:21
Re: dice puzzleYes Devanté, it's just part of the text. But hey, you're just like me. I often 0 can be nothing and something. 0 #8 20070129 18:14:30
Re: dice puzzleThe question as asked, the answer is indeed 6  as far as I can tell.
