bonanova 77 Report post Posted June 25, 2013 I saw a clock the other day with only 9's on its face. Thirty-six 9's in all, three each at the twelve hour-markers. Can you design such a clock face? That is, express each of the numbers 1-12 using three 9's Along with standard math symbols. Extra credit for three different expressions for each hour.
