  2. Well, I seem to have forgotten the detail about having to exit the cheese so there goes that! Revised attempt. Don't know how to spoiler a photo but since it's wrong anyway, here it is.
  3. if i spent a month on it i might be able to do the necessary calculation, don't have that kind of patience though.
  4. I get 24 cubes ; 7 in the front face ; 9 in the middle ; and 8 in the rear face
  5. Use the twelve pieces on the left to create a chess board, The pieces may be flipped!
  6. There is a puzzle in this Microsoft Build conference talk: https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Build/2017/P4053 These 3 sentences encode a word: All arguments could belong just here Playing with cool HTMLviews, enjoy refreshing without building Look, debugging tool Python makes use of Go to http://aka.ms/[answer] to check if your answer is correct!
  7. Have another go!
  8. I think starting from any point other than a corner would be non optimal.
  9. Nice puzzle. I have the feeling that
  10. Hopefully this one has not appeared before... Suppose 27 identical cubical chunks of cheese are piled together to form a cubical stack, as illustrated below. What is the maximum number of these cheese chunks through which a mouse of negligible size could munch before exiting the stack, assuming that the mouse always travels along the grid of 27 straight lines that pass through the centers of the chunks parallel or perpendicular to their sides, always makes a 90 degree turn at the center of each chunk it enters, and never enters any chunk more than once?
  11. Many years ago, a patent clerk with a PhD...named Einstein, thought of the theory of Relativity. In the Theory of Relativity it states that objects age slower the faster their velocity, and that light always travels at C...no matter your velocity, you can never catch up to a receding light. If light can never be caught up to, then it can not be used to measure speed. Then how, can an Earth age more than an astronaut...since neither knows which one is truly the faster velocity. This...is Paradox #1, of Relativity. There are more to come...
  12. Take a car, with an infinite gripping tires... What are the lateral, and longitudal forces exerted on each tire, in frame 2? carthing.bmp Not even the best scientists or physicists in the world could solve this. If you solve this...you are the smartest person in the world. carthing.bmp
  13. Box # 5 if we put the +/- for each dot; white (W) , and black (B) in these boxes and treat like the numbers which only the same color can subtract each other from the column. for example calculation of the dots from middle roll boxes; 1st box 2nd box the sum box +W +W +B +W -B -B -W -B And to find the missing box regarding the same assumption above; 1st box 2nd box the sum box +W +B +B +B +B +B -B -W -W -W So, the result is box #5
  14. Shot! From A to B, yes ... 14, e.g. A or B (see attached Chess Knight.xlsx) From A to anywhere but B, you'll get one more, e.g. C
  15. Does anyone know the answer to this one? If so please explain why
  16. Oh, maximum. Sorry, I didn't catch that.
  17. Maximum, not minimum ... more than 12 moves from A to B, inclusive!
  18. Well done all of you! The correct answer is indeed 166 667 166 667 000 000
  19. (2 X 7) + 5 X (2 X 10) = 380
