## Word Arithmetic Puzzle #1

###### Number of solvers so far: 0

Each letter in the arithmetic
puzzle to the left is a different number from 0

thru 9. The result is a multiplication with the correct result.

Find the matching numbers for each letter. There is only one answer.

## Word Arithmetic Puzzle #2

###### Number of solvers so far: 0

This is another word arithmetic like the one above, except that

this time there are *two* solutions. Also, only 9 of the ten digits

are used (different set of 9 for the two solutions). Some of the

solving techniques won't work this time!

Find the matching numbers for each letter, for each of the

two solutions.

## Logic Puzzle #1

###### Number of solvers so far: 2

What is the logic behind the eight-letter sequence on the left?

Therefore what is the next letter?

## Geometry Puzzle

###### Number of solvers so far: 1

The sphere on the right is inscribed in the rectangular pyramid,
and tangent

to all 5 sides. The volume of the pyramid is 36 cubic
inches, and the surface

area of the pyramid is 45 square inches.

What is the radius of the sphere?

## Logic Puzzle #2

###### Number of solvers so far: 0

What is the logic behind the number sequence on the left?

Therefore what is the missing (??) number?

## Numbers Puzzle

###### Number of solvers so far: 0

Players take turns choosing a number on the right.

No number is taken twice. First player to reach the

sum of 39 wins (I.E. 1, 13, 19, & 25 wins via 1 + 13

+ 25). If neither player can make 39, the game is a

draw (I.E. 1, 4, 10, 13, 19 vs. 7, 16. 22, 25).

A: If you have gone first and picked 19, and then your

opponent has taken 22, which number should you

choose next? *Note: there is only one solution. One
other number leads to a draw, and the remaining
five lead to a loss, even though you went first!*

B: Does this puzzle remind you of anything you have seen before?

## Networking Puzzle

###### Number of solvers so far: 0 (Difficult)

The computer cluster at the left is obeying 2 directives:
**1: Each node must be connected to exactly 3 others**

**2: Each node can reach every other node in**

*3 steps or less*Thus node 1 can connect to node 9 in 3 steps: 1 to 5, 5 to 4, 4 to 9.

But ten nodes is not the maximum possible. What

*is*the maximum?

**Create a new cluster: one that has the maximum possible**

number of nodes, while obeying the above two directives.

number of nodes, while obeying the above two directives.
