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

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)

Friday Funny: This Is Why You Shouldn’t Interrupt a Programmer

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is for everyone who works with or lives with a software developer.

My wife has long since learnt to leave me alone when I am in programming mode, even when I walk away from the computer to grab a drink or remember to eat (5 hours after meal time). She does not like being groaned at when she makes me lose my “train of thought”.

As most developers would understand, when you are working on solving a problem, working out a new technique or solving a complex bug, your brain is busy processing many possible solutions and discarding the ones that don’t work. Eventually it will find a working solution. All this thinking is happening too fast to write anything down, so please don’t interrupt us just because we are not typing on the keyboard.

This comic strip from Jason Heeris sums it up.

Here is the link to Jason’s site:

PS: Never suggest to a developer that it is late and they should go to bed and work on it again in the morning. You will be likely to get yelled at.

PPS: Then again, when a developer is not actually working, it is safe to make a suggestion to them in the evening. They will often have a solution by the morning…. and sometimes get up in the middle of the night to code it.
