Hint: It has NOTHING to do with the math. It's a trick question.

I used an algebraic expression and got it right every time

(first dice/ third dice)second dice= fourth dice-fith dice(n)

and just solve for n

I think that's coincidental because there's a MUCH easier way.

Was absolutely clueless. I was fucking with sequencing and logs and all types of shit. Eventually gave up and looked the damn thing up. At one point I'd been on the right track, but I quickly shifted into math mode.

tajeco
10-11-2005, 04:40 AM
Are you sure Charging Soldier? Because that seems a lot more difficult than it has to be. Good job if indeed it works like that.

I think I looked at every other possibility first before eventually getting it correct, took me about 25 attempts to figure out what I was supposed to be counting!!!

pi? I think it's easier than that, kids don't know about pi.

I had to ask this girl and she explained it to me, she got it in like one minute. what you got to do is really think about a rose and the form of it, not with numbers.

"It had taken Dr. Duke well over a year himself, and he would always explain that the smarter you were, the longer it took to figure it out."

10-11-2005, 07:22 PM
What the fuck, was that supposed to be a challenge? Shit, I know I'm a genius and all, but c'mon, that was pre-school shit. I rolled the dice once, guessed it right, rolled it again, guessed wrong, looked why the answer was what it was, and that was it. Took me about 2 seconds to figure it out. I'm genuinly surprised people would have any trouble figuring that out.

Good lookin. lol I was strugglin until I saw that, after that just took me bout 2 more min of playin around w. it...

It reminded me of this study this Harvard Professor did, talking about there is so much we do not see b.c of what we are trained to...like one example was if you showed a kid a FedEx truck, one of the first things they would notice is an arrow...I could never see it, but my friend said he did immediately, pretty interesting

Stopped me trying to maths it.

tajeco
10-12-2005, 01:26 AM
yeah, it's crazy. We attempt to get the answer by applying all the math we learned over the years. But then when you look at it like you would before you knew math, it's kinda easy.

10-12-2005, 01:29 AM

I still don't understand how the hint "think like a child" could help in any way. It's about exploring other avenues.

what the hell fedex truck are you talking about?
Its just supposed to be the way FedEx is written. When we see it, we read it, but when they said children looked at it, most of them said they see an arrow. I saw the story a few years ago on 60min or 20/20, Ill try n find it again somehow.

Visionz
10-12-2005, 08:25 PM
the smarter you are the longer it takes? Doc said that cuz he's an educated dumb-ass. Guess and got it right first time, figured out by the third. No need to overanalyze what's right in front of you.peace

the smarter you are the longer it takes

this was said and kept there for a reason.....even though it has been criticized here and it his email inbox.

there is a connection between "how smart you are" and how we interpret symbols (for which we see dots on dice, they are interpreted as numbers).

there are actually a few reasons why the professer said that.

Visionz
10-15-2005, 08:34 AM
^Would you expand on his reasonings of that statement for me. I got the puzzle figured out by the third try, but I know I'm fairly intelligent so I'm curious to hear where he's coming from.

Ronin
10-15-2005, 10:38 AM
figured it out

look at the middle of the dice, count the number of dots around it#

do the same for every dice

I don't think it's the 'smarter you are.' I think it is related to how much rote education you have been indoctrinated with and how much of those methods you have absorbed.

The more formal education you have bought into, the less likely you are using right brain techniques.

Most Western education is linear and non- abstract.
