In Topic: Nested Figures in a Pentagon

20 October 2013 - 01:18 PM

no clue about this one. seems to me the lowest prime number the outside could be is 11, with the blue diamond being 7 and the black pentagon being 3.

but how to prove that is beyond me.

When you said the blue diamond, did you mean the blue star?  If so, it would have a larger perimeter than the red pentagon.  But that is all I can determine.

In Topic: Colorful Elephants

The remaining 2/3 can be evenly split into 400 blue and 400 pink and green, but it is also possible that there are 23 blue elephants and 777 pink and green. There is no "definite" here.

your 'observation' is only valid if those were the only colors allowed.  For all we know, there is one blue, one pink and green and 798 grey elephants.
