sequence. C: It's finite. Nobody likes it anymore 'cause I put it on the chat approx. 4 or 5 times in a couple hours. At any rate... Worth 5 points[/spoiler]

The most epic and horribly complex maze you will ever encounter or even see. Please mark your path in the cyan (or, if inverted, red) provided. I have put security measures against the fill tool. Don't try it. Go resize it or something. Invert the color. Whatever. Portals are different colors. They teleport you to the spot of the same color. When you receive a key you will teleport to the spot that is the same color as the background next to the key. Then you proceed to unlock the corresponding blue block. Worth: 10 Winner: GV

Part one: Draw a regular pentagon and a regular pentagram inside it. How many triangles are in this figure? Part two: In this sentence, the number of occurrences of 0 is _, of 1 is_, of 2 is _, of 3 is _, of 4 is _, of 5 is _, of 6 is _, of 7 is _, or 8 is _, and of 9 is _. Fill in the blanks with the correct digits. Part 3: What is the greatest number of bishops that can be placed on the board with none of them attacking each other? Part 4: Four matches of equal length are arranged in a cross. Move one match to create a square. Part 5: Two matches are arranged in a V, two in an = sign, and 3 are used as Is for the Roman numeral equation: VII=I EDIT: You can't just cross the equals sign. Doesn't work that way. c: Same for puzzle 7. Move one match to make the equation true Part 6: How could one get 24 with 5, 5, 5, and 1? Only the four basic operations are allowed. EDIT: Drax and Vert are attempting to find loopholes and are driving me nuts, so I'll say this. Only the four basic operations. No different interpretations, just the +, -, x, /. You use all, you don't reuse. Just four. Only four. And that is that. Part 7: 5+5+5=550 Make the equation true with one stroke Altogether worth 7 points (4 after deadline). Once more, MUST BE ENTERED TOGETHER OR WILL NOT BE COUNTED. Kfanks. Winner: Elmach (after deadline)

Couple word puzzles. Have fun! Once more, they must all be submitted together. Upon conversing with a peasant woman, a marketer asks the woman what the ages of her 3 children are. Smiling benignly, the woman cryptically replies, "Their ages multiply to 36." The marketer frowns. A puzzle with insufficient information? "Well, carry on. We both know well I can't deduce from that!" The woman declares, "Look in my basket. Their ages sum up to the number of eggs in my basket." The marketer counted the eggs and thought. "I still don't quite know." The woman looks at the marketer in the eye. "The eldest one is blond." The marketer smiles. "Ah, I see. Farewell!" And the two went their ways. How many eggs were in the basket? What are the ages? (For the sake of the puzzle, assume twins are of EXACTLY equal age)

You walk into a store. A display of toys catches your eye. A block with three rods protruding up from it sits with seven rings of verying size around the left pole. Walking over, the shopkeeper tells you that this is a popular puzzle set. Confident it is difficult, he bets you $50 that you can't solve it. Accepting, you now look at the puzzle as the shopkeeper explains. "As you can see, there are seven rings of varying size. They are stackes with largest at the bottom to smallest up top. Now, the objective is to move the entire stack from left pole to right pole, with the center pole as a jump space. You may only pick up one ring at a time. No ring can be placed upon a ring smaller than itself. And you must keep all seven rings on the poles. Good luck." The shopkeeper recedes into his quarters as you ponder the puzzle. State full solution, with ebery step. Use following format: 1C (smallest ring to center) 2R (second smallest ring to right) etc... You get an extra point for having the fastest solution possible.

Question: Complete the sequence until you prove it goes into a looping pattern (Ergo, you prove after a certain point it loops forever) and state the looping number(s) 783-882-1032-36-243... Answer: 783-882-1032-36-243-99-1458-702-351-153-153-153... Worth: 4, 2. Bonus: State the full pattern when you start from 579. Answer: 579-1197-1074-408-576-684-792-1080-513-153-153-153... Worth: 2 EXTRA BONUS: State what 1729 has to do with this pattern. Answer: It is the sum of two positive cubes in two different ways, and is the first to do so. It is related because this sequence is based on sums of cubes. Worth: 3 Winner (all 3): ShiningSilver Comp. Winners: N/A

I put them in color, but you can write numbers and stuff provided you give a key. You must submit BOTH answers to earn the point. Worth: 2 Winner: N/A Comp. Winners: Draxor
