2. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Sorry to say I didn't save my counts. Slightly burnt out from counting, recounting, and rerecounting the previous ones. lol. Maybe I'll try again when I've had more time to recover.

#1
4. ## Cubicle Stack #2

I did some quick counting for the easier ones. I've noticed that at least up to this point, the number of combinations of C, E, M, and X is (# cubelets removed+1)^2. There are 25 combinations for 4 cubelets removed. The ones including X would be the same as the counts for 3 cubelets without X. I did not count the combinations that have 2 or more E's or CCEM, CCMM, AND CEMM. I got 191 for the rest. I'm guessing the ones I didn't count are going to be pretty high so maybe around 500?
5. ## Cubicle Stack #2

When you remove a cubelet, the kind you remove matters because it changes the shape. When you take away 26, it doesn't matter which one is left. There may be 4 different labels but in the end, when it comes to the remaining shape, all you see is a cube. Another thing. For T27, there is one possibility. But given the phrasing of the original question, does nothing count as a shape?
6. ## Cubicle Stack #2

A couple more revisions because I can't tell the difference between counting to 4 and counting to 6 at night. Thanks for checking all these. That's a lot of numbers!
7. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Full guess with numbered cubelets and revision to CEE.
8. ## Buried Proverb

Not sure if these are supposed to go together or be 6 separate things.
9. ## Cubicle Stack #2

New number for EEE. But I'm still getting the same result for CEE and CEM.
10. ## Whodunit?

I understand now. I interpreted it as making the triangle from the lines you get from trisecting. I didn't know you could connect the intersecting points. Thanks for clarifying.
11. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Only 13 this time.

CEX
13. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Recount. EEM and EEC intentionally left out. About CEX
14. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Lol. I'm not sure what my score is anymore. Can you score this?
15. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Nevermind the CEX numbers. I really need to find a cube I can hold...
16. ## Cubicle Stack #2

I see what you mean about CEX although I'm not sure how to show that with the numbering system. That throws a wrench in my counting. . .
17. ## Cubicle Stack #2

So 6/7 in the last post and check CEX?
18. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Think I found one of the 2 I changed from correct to incorrect. But I think that would leave one of these as still wrong though I can't figure out which. . .
19. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Another stab at it.
20. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Revision to CCC and EEX with numbers.

22. ## Cubicle Stack #2

Pretty sure these counts are wildly inaccurate but here goes...:
23. ## Whodunit?

For Bert, can you draw lines between points of intersection (like the theorem rocdocmac mentioned) or does the triangle have to be formed from the trisecting lines as attached?
24. ## I'm Back

Welcome back Cavenglok! That series sounds vaguely familiar but I don't think I followed it at the time. It sounds interesting though. Good to see another former member back.
