Puzzles And Tests for FUN hopefully????

 

So first:

 

What is the missing number in this sequence?

 

5, 11, 7, 8, 9, 5, 11, 2, 13, ?, 15

Nice try but no, sorry!

 

Would love to know why you considered that to be correct?

ok,now the solution:classic_tongue:

 

No that wouldn't be fun!

 

A triangle of snooker balls includes 15 red balls but how many individual triangles of balls can be made from the full set?

You can reuse each ball for every triangle.

 -1

You've got two sequences one going up in 2s one going down in 3s.

Correct :)

 

There is also another way to consider the problem.

 

Pairing the numbers, as in 5 +11 = 16,  7 + 8 = 15,  9 + 5 = 14,  11 + 2 = 13,  therefore 13 + -1 would equal 12

The second one isn't strictly allowable, because you have a spurious number at the end (15) and that implies inclusion in the sequence.

lol

 

You post a puzzle and you can decide if it is allowable or not!

By my consideration, to be able to consider outside of a limited box and conceive of potentials which have NOT been offered is greater than only grasping at authorities dictates!

 

But hey, thats me and it was my quiz :)

You win! Think outside the box, now leave me alone I'm counting balls:classic_wacko:

48 

 

Top up  3 ball triangles you have 5 4 3 2 1 = 15

Then you have 6 ball triangles 4 3 2 1 = 10

Then you have 10 ball triangles 3 2 1 = 6

Then you have 15 ball triangles 2 1 = 3

Then you have a big 21 ball triangle 1

 

Top down you have 3 ball triangles 4 3 2 1 = 10

Then you have 6 ball triangles 2 1 =3

You can't make any bigger than 6 downwards.

A 2 time winner 🤩

I had to go and check it again as I only got 47 (and thought that quite cool, you know 147 an all) but you are correct 48 it is :)

A few more then :classic_unsure:

 

First an easyish one!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If a code for:

DAVID = AWQCW

then what is the code for:

RENEGADE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Next one which may be a wee bit difficult?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If a code for:

ANDOVER = XOZPQNP

then what is the code for:

WINCHESTER

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

This last one I do not expect anyone to get, ever lol :classic_tongue: but I have given more words to help you!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

If a code for:

A FIRE IN THE SKY SHINE BRIGHTLY = B  HQCR  OY  EJM  DMG  ASVAH  OUSOUDZQ

then what is the code for:

WE COME FOR NIGHTS DARKNESS

 

and decode this:

UITQ  LNT  FDXLZKBK

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I must say that if I hadn't created the code for the last one, I would never decode it 😳

Just thought to add to the above quoted 'problems'!

 

You will not find these within a search, so don't bother. They are new but quite solvable.

 

The first one you will need to find only a single key which allows for the decoding ..

The second requires 2 keys, but only the first is of any difficulty to find. The second is easy.

The third requires 4 keys, but they need to be found in order! (There may be other ways to decode it but I didn't 'look' at the possibilities. I would have if I intended to use the encryption in anyway, but I don't, so I didn't bother)

 

All three also would backwards. So you can code and uncode via the same keys.

I have another which is terminally encrypted. Thus the encryption keys are not the same as the decryption keys but I considered that a tad ridiculous to post here lol

Correct as correct can be :classic_biggrin:

 

and you said that you cant do these?? And now we see that you can! 😍

If I can say, for the next one, as it has two keys, you may try a key (or thought) and it doesn't work and thus you discard it!

 

That is the intentional design.

 

For each consideration you need to take that which you have considered and then 'play' with that idea.

Don't just get discouraged because it didn't 'fit'.

 

It maybe correct and you just need the second key to unlock it?

I should give the solution and therefore show 'thought' which may help with the second one?

What do you think?

 

I cannot see, unless you have a dedicated computer to solve coded messages, that the third one will be decrypted?

 

Or should I just STFU?

Also as Rupert was kind enough not to post the method in decryption of that puzzle we still have it to consider!

 

How did Rupert do it?

 

What is the key?

 

But now you have a second word with which to unlock the problem :)

 

So:

 

If a code for:

DAVID = AWQCW

AND the code for:

RENEGADE = OAIYZSUU

 

What is the method? What is the key?

I did it in my head - my explanations get ignored so not giving it. You won't get any takers for number 2 and 3. Double key ciphers are ridiculous, 4 way takes multiscan algorithms.

 

Spill the beans.
