  1. I wish to point out a trivial mistake in my OP ... The value at position C10 (1223) and the one at J11 (1226) have inadvertently not been swapped before posting, So both these values are in their correct placings. This means that only 14 swaps need to be done. No extra cycles, all straightforward X ↔ Y (one exchange per number with another).
  2. In the ten numerical sequences below, three numbers from each sequence have been moved to another sequence, i.e. 15 numbers have been swapped. Which 15 pairs of numbers should be exchanged to make each of the sequences follow a regular pattern? (A) 37, 85, 148, 232, 333, 442, 589, 744, 917, 1108, 1317, 1544 (B) 42, 84, 144, 219, 310, 417, 537, 679, 834, 1005, 1208, 1395 (C) 44, 95, 166, 253, 368, 493, 650, 821, 1012, 1223, 1454, 1705 (D) 70, 122, 189, 271, 366, 475, 598, 735, 890, 1051, 1230, 1423 (E) 123, 181, 252, 335, 430, 540, 656, 787, 930, 1085, 1283, 1431 (F) 149, 209, 280, 361, 452, 553, 691, 785, 916, 1057, 1192, 1369 (G) 160, 190, 220, 253, 288, 325, 364, 406, 448, 499, 540, 589 (H) 253, 320, 395, 478, 569, 666, 775, 886, 1013, 1144, 1252, 1430 (I) 257, 300, 351, 405, 465, 528, 595, 668, 741, 820, 903, 990 (J) 306, 371, 452, 519, 602, 664, 786, 887, 994, 1107, 1226, 1351 Example In the two sequences below, 48 and 52 should be swapped to make sense (A5 ↔ B4). (A) 20, 25, 32, 41, 48, 65. 80 (B) 15, 24, 35, 52, 63, 80, 99
  3. Phil1882 is right ... there is a discrepancy. The 6th term may possibly be 532 901 * 532 901 + 1 = 283 982 410 001.
  4. You've got all of them correct! Kindly tell all Braindenners how you managed that. My explanation to follow after that (if necessary).
  5. @mtngoat @SamSam11
  6. @mtngoat ... @flamebirde @Brainden
  7. Flamebirde ... there's an additional score (7/10) by Jim56 to consider!
  8. Intentially done so. Player VI could not make up his mind with two positions and duplicated one of the letters! The solution indeed has 10 different letters. Jim56, your score is 7/10.
