#323391 The Chromatic Witch, Ep 2: The Power of Green

Posted by DudleyDude on 29 July 2012 - 02:51 AM

My apologies for not using a Spoiler but I think we are all playing together against the Witch and trying to reformat this inside a spoiler would be a huge pain.

This is what I have so far. Nothing I can make much sense of, but maybe will help everyone else.

The nth term in sequence K is: (49 - n)/[2|3] where '[2|3]' means 'either 2 or 3', but I haven't yet figured out when to use 2 instead of 3 or vice versa.

Similarly, the nth term in sequence H is: n*[1|2|3|4]

Rewriting the sequences with the variable choices yeids:
H: 3,2,2,2,3,3,4,1,3,2,3,1,2,3,1
K: 2,2,3,3,3,2,3,2,3,2,3,3,2,2,2

I'm guessing that we need to figure out the rules behind the 2 sequences and extend them out far enough to find the corresponding pairs that K and H quote at the very end (112,21), (93,9), (48,0.5), (84,14), (18,10.3), (84,7) and that the values of n for each entry will end up corresponding to a 6 letter word.

Since the H sequence involved [1|2|3|4], I decided to try that as well for the K sequence. I'm still not sure how to decide which multiplier/divisor is used, so I opened a spreadsheet and calculated all 4 possible H and K sequence numbers for n=1:48. I then looked for n's where both the final values quoted by H and K were existing for that value of n. That yielded the following sequence 28,31,48,21,18, 28.

I still don't know if this sequence is significant nor how to convert it to a word.

Here's a few to get started (without explanations). I'll try to add more after work.

I keep coming back to this and keep coming up blank.

@PG - Do you have a link back to Shakee riddle you reference?

The clue is in the first spoiler. Still not positive of the final answer, but my first guess is in the 2nd spoiler

Spoiler for clue

Spoiler for guess

Sometimes I get excited when I solve (or partially solve) a riddle and then realize that PG beat me to it by a wide margin....
