#337663 collatz sequence^2

Posted by phil1882 on 02 March 2014 - 08:24 PM

take a number, greater than 1.

if odd, subtract 1, square it.

if even, divide by 2.

2 -> 1

3 -> 4 -> 2

5 -> 8 -> 4

7 -> 36 --> 9 -> 16 -> 8

11 -> 100 -> 25 -> 576 -----> 9

13 -> 144 ----> 9

will this always hit a power of 2?

#335238 Masonry Chess

you can use the brown and grey tiles to represent the board and the red and yellow brick to represent each side, the "size" of the blocks together equal to its chess equivalent.

#332549 The deconstruction and reconstruction of numbers

Posted by phil1882 on 26 May 2013 - 02:00 AM

the problem statement is unclear. i'm unsure of what you mean by

"remove the nothing space above all the numbers to where the numbers are shifted up until they are at the top creating a list of new numbers."

do you mean concatinate a number below with the number above together?

#328219 Mao: the card game

Posted by phil1882 on 12 February 2013 - 06:01 AM

flamebirde's rule: when playing a card of the same suit. must be either 1 higher or lower than the previously played card.

rob_gandy's rule: when three cards of the same value are played consecutively, order reverses.

brainy's rule. diamonds skip next player's turn.

miss kitten's rule: spades can only be changed to hearts.

framm's rule: a face card played on top of another face card skips that player's next turn.

#326091 Blonde Jokes

Posted by phil1882 on 17 October 2012 - 09:30 AM

this one is pretty cute!
Blonde v.s. Lawyer
a lawyer sitting on a plane next to a Blonde want to pass some time and turns to her and says, "how about a trivia game, if i ask you a question and you get it right I'll pay you 10 dollars, and if you get it wrong you pay me 1 dollar. then you ask me a question, with the same conditions." blonde says, "no thanks, I'm reading a book." the lawyer says, "okay how about this, 20 dollars for getting right for you, and 20 dollars for getting wrong for me." the blonde rolls her eyes and says fine. the lawyer asks, "whats the distance from the earth to the sun?" the blonde hands him a dollar. then the blonde asks him, "what goes uphill with 3 legs and down hill with 4?" the lawyer blinks for a second and says " i have no idea, i guess you win that round." then hands her 20. "okay my turn again, i am curious, what does go up hill with three legs and down hill with 4?" the blonde hands him another dollar.
