Friday Funny: 6 The Hard Way

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHere is another numeric challenge from the internet to keep you thinking. This one does involve mathematics unlike the previous Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles post.

This one should have the gears spinning as you work out the solutions.

The puzzle is called “6 The Hard Way” and involves you creating mathematical equations that will make three digits (from 0 to 9) equal 6.

6TheHardWay

Here are the rules:

  • You cannot draw a number.
  • To get to 6, all you can use are mathematical symbols – as long as they don’t include a number.
  • You can solve the equations in any order.

To get you started, I will give you one of the solutions:

6 + 6 – 6 = 6

Respond in the comments how you went, but don’t give away any answers.

Hint: The solution to the 8’s equation is the hardest and needs all the techniques you would have worked out to solve the other equations, so do that one last.

Enjoy

David

PS: I will post the source links later as they include solutions.

Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday’s Friday Funny comes from something I saw on the internet. I would normally give credit to my source, but as that will also give away the solutions, I will wait until later when I post the solutions.

Can you solve these three numeric puzzles? …… Despite the title of this article, they do have solutions.

Respond in the comments if you think you have solutions, but don’t give away any answers.

Here you go…

Puzzle 1

By only adding one straight line to the following equation make it a true expression.

Note: You are not allowed to change the equals to not equals.

Puzzle1

Puzzle 2

In the same way that three 20’s add up to 60, use the same number three times to create a sum that adds up to 60.

Puzzle2

Puzzle 3

Using only the four digits 2, 3, 4, 5 and the two symbols +, = make a true equation.

Puzzle3

Following challenging my family with these puzzles, I have to add the following clarifications/rules:

  • All puzzles are using base 10. No hexadecimal allowed.
  • In Puzzle 1, you cannot alter the equals sign in any way. For example: changing it to be less than or equal, greater than or equal, or not equal.
  • In Puzzle 2, you cannot add any other mathematical operations.
  • In Puzzle 3, you must use all four digits and two symbols. You cannot rotate the symbols to create multiply symbol or the number 11.

At least my family were trying for creative solutions. But they did manage to solve all three in the end.

Enjoy

Secret Squirrel Business at The Secret Partner Update at Amplify

David Meego - Click for blog homepageMy good friend Pam Misialek from the Dynamics GP Product Marketing team has announced a secret meeting for Partners and ISVs to be held the day before the Amplify conference.

Now that it has been announced and reposted, I don’t think it is very secret any more, but it should still only be spoken of in hushed reverent tones and sign language.

So, if you are a Partner or an ISV (Independent Software Vendor for those who don’t like TLA’s) and will be attending Amplify or are just in the vicinity of Anaheim, California, USA then you should attend.

The session will cover partner only topics not discussed in the actual conference. I cannot provide details here (it’s secret, you know), but go to Pam’s article for the low down.

For more information on the Amplify conference click on the logo below:

Sorry I won’t be there…. just to far to travel.

But I will be at both reIMAGINE 2016 and GPUG Summit 2016 and hope to see you there.

Friday Funny: Magnets, Marbles and Dominoes

David Meego - Click for blog homepageA friend of mine posted the first video in this article on the Book of Face last week and I wanted to share it because it is really clever.

The video takes the traditional domino toppling idea and turns it on its head with Marbominoes using marbles, ball bearings and magnets. The creator, Kaplamino, shows many different techniques and keeps you asking “What’s next?”.

At the time of posting this article the video has almost two and half million hits.

Magnets and Marbles! (direct link)

 

Here is another video from last year using dominoes that also is worth watching.

Random screen link! (direct link)

 

Enjoy

Dexterity for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Install Error

David Meego - Click for blog homepageI came across an interesting issue yesterday when I installed Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 and its matching Dexterity 16.0 version.

When installing Dexterity I received an error message which in turn caused the installation process to be cancelled.

Note: We have skipped version 15.0, so that GP 2016 is version 16.0. This avoids the confusion we have had previously with the version “year” not matching the version “number”.

The error was as follows:

Dex Instance Error 1

The internal instance name is already in use. Specify a different instance transform.

This first error dialog is then followed by an Installation Failed message.

Dex Instance Error 2

I did not get this error when I first installed Dexterity 16.0 from the first ISV drop of GP 2016. But I did get it when re-installing Dexterity 16.0 when I updated to the second ISV drop of GP 2016. I thought this was because I accidently started the Dexterity install before the GP install had finished.

Now, because I have written installers for my own products, I had a fairly good idea of the cause of this issue. I was able to locate the registry settings which tell the installer what instances of Dexterity 16.0 are installed and remove them. Then I was able to reinstall.

However, after uninstalling the second ISV drop yesterday to install the RTM versions of GP 2016 and Dexterity 16.0, the same error occurred and this time I was careful to wait for the GP 2016 installer to finish before starting the Dexterity 16.0 installer.

It appears that the Dexterity 16.0 installer is not cleaning up the registry correctly when un-installing.

So, if you come across this problem while re-installing Dexterity 16.0, here is the fix:

Using RegEdit.exe go to the following key:

HKLMSOFTWAREWOW6432NodeMicrosoftDexterityv16

Dex Instance Error 3

And delete the v16 key and all its sub keys.

Then Dexterity 16.0 will re-install successfully.

Hope this helps

David
