Solve the Number Puzzle: TW,THR,FOUR,SEV,EIGHT

In summary, the conversation was about creating a fun mathematical puzzle involving numbers and equations. The participants discussed different scenarios and equations, eventually coming up with a solution where TWO = 360.25, THREE = 72, FOUR = 359.75, SEVEN = 1, and EIGHT = 1/2. They also recognized the importance of properly phrasing the equations to ensure a unique solution.

Nothing big; just made it up... but kind of fun to figure out... well... at least I think so. :smile:

- If THREE were a number and thrice THREE was 216... what number would it be?

- If EIGHT were a number and EIGHT times THREE were 36... what number would it be?

- If TWO and FOUR were numbers and TWO added to FOUR equaled 10 times THREE, and TWO minus FOUR equaled EIGHT times SEVEN, and SEVEN times itself 3 times equaled SEVEN... what are they?

TWO = ?
THREE = ?
FOUR = ?
SEVEN = ?
EIGHT = ?

This is what confusing me. Did you phrase it correctly?

TWO = 360
THREE = 72
FOUR = 360
SEVEN = 0
EIGHT = 1/2

BycicleTree... you're too smart. :biggrin: I'll have to find a very cryptic way of making one up, just for you.

I got all of them equally except seven: couldn't it be 1?¿?¿?

Just using the last "equation" it could be 1; but it doesn't work if you use the results with the other two equations.

just use the simulteneus equation right??

Yep, you could put it that way.

I also get the following.


TWO = 360.25
THREE = 72
FOUR = 359.75
SEVEN = 0
EIGHT = 1/2

Wow! You've struck something here... although you'll need to make SEVEN = 1.

- If TWO and FOUR were numbers and TWO added to FOUR equaled 10 times THREE, and TWO minus FOUR equaled EIGHT times SEVEN, and SEVEN times itself 3 times equaled SEVEN... what are they?

360.25 + 359.75 = 720 = 10 * 72
360.25 - 359.75 = 0.5 = 0.5 * 1
1 * 1 * 1 = 1

That's really good Delta. No one else caught that (including me). :biggrin:
