In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Hi;

None that are useful. But I do have a question or two.

1) How do you get 10 maximum instead of 9?

2)

my answer is : 18******* !

I am not following that. What does it mean?

Hi RauLiTo;

Offhand I would say that it will require a computer program to do it.

If you would provide your breakdown:

3 digits = ?
4 digits = ?
5 digits = ?
.
.
.
10 digits = ?

### Re: Android Lock Patterns

Can you post all the 3 ( 372 of them ) move patterns?

Supposing you had the feature of 2 digits for a move pattern. How many of them would you get?
