homemade calendar


Go to solution Solved by jordge,

Question

I have made a desk calendar out of six blocks. Each block has six faces. When read from left to right, they tell:
The current day of the week on one block, in one or two letters (M, Tu, W, Th, F, Sa, Su).
The date of the month on two blocks, one digit per block.
The abbreviation for the month on three blocks, one lower-case letter per block (jan, feb, mar, apr, may, jun, jul, aug, sep, oct, nov, dec).
(I do not mean that this is the count of blocks needed to make each item but rather it is the amount of blocks it takes to show the event---1 block shows the day of the week not that all of the days of the week are on one block)
What are the symbols (letter or number) on each face of each block?

How would your calendar show Wed. June 19, 2013?

A better question is, "How does the calendar show Wed, 19 Aug"?

Use the 'M' from the first dice - turn it over to make the 'W'.

Use the '6' and '1' from the next two dice - turn over the '6' to make the '9'.

Use the 'g', 'a' and 'n' from the next three dice - turn over the 'n' to make the 'u'.
