On the 2 x 1 grid all 7- segment digits above can be formed one at a time as seen on clocks , calculators and other digital devices. If we are allowed to flip or rotate and overlap segments, how should these digits be configured inside the 3 x 4 grid ,so we can see all of them at the same time?

Spoiler

note: too much overlapping may cause some digits to disappear

**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?**

The main riddle is the infamous quote from Gandalf " The Grey Pilgrim, that's what they used to call me. Three hundred lives of men I've walked this earth and now I have no time. With luck, my search will not be in vain. Look to my coming at first light on the fifth day. At dawn, look to the East." I need your help to find any sub riddles in that quote or somewhere else in the website!

Today I came across with this riddle that seems simple, but I haven't got a clue on how to solve.

IF

3+5+7 = 152131

4+8+6 = 322448

6+2+9 = 125464

THEN

A + B + C = 123040

--------------------------

IF

9 + 4 + 5 = 364590

2 + 6 + 8 = 121630

3 + 7 + 8 = 212448

THEN

D + E + F = 303570

Thanks in advance

If you cut a pizza using **two **straight vertical cuts, you'll have **four **pieces left (pieces-to-cut ratio = 2, also a whole number).

Cutting the pizza **thrice**, the maximum pieces possible is seven (pieces/cuts = 7/3 = 2.3333..., i.e. there is a **remainder **of 1).

See attached image.

Questions ...

(1) What is the ** maximum number of pieces** that one would get by cutting the pizza

(2) ** How many** cuts should one make to get a maximum of at least

(3) The minimum piece-to-cut ratio with no remainder is exactly 2 as indicate above. What would be the ** next higher number of cuts**, such that the number of resulting pieces divided by the number of cuts has no remainder?
