  1. Some amount of primes.
  2. I think I've got it. Nah, I definitely don't have it. I can't account for one particular case.
  3. Haha, you're the third person to correct me on that point.
  4. Correct. I clarified that at the end of the post.
  5. I should also reiterate that I wasn't looking for x|y where x=y. Those are the 22 results that I removed, since they weren't ambiguous. I looked for x|y where there was a complimentary y|x
  6. Yeah, I ended up taking it a step further and moving the minute hand by 1 degree at a time instead of the hour hand. So the matching columns were a looooot longer. I couldn't include it in the post because it was too long.
  7. Yeah, now I think I've got it.
  8. Does that allow the other sheriff to make the arrest, though? That was the stumbling block I was having with my second approach.
  9. An alternative: My second method actually doesn't work. It lets the sheriffs know that they share a suspect (or don't), but doesn't tell them who the shared suspect is.
