CAPTIALISM!

Logic!

The ultimate Eg-No-Ra-Moose

WARNING: HARD
(I did it by hardcore guess and check. Don’t have a real proof, but my heuristics are 100% sure, and it’s not conditional probability, so I’m probably right. Also, side-note, I actually made this problem. So you know there’s some personal bias involved. Well, I can’t just copy cool problems and put them here! Gotta have some original ones, too.)

Joe is playing a game involving the above board. He places 14 pegs on the board, leaving a single space empty. He then jumps a peg with an adjacent peg. The peg that has been jumped is removed.

For example, if Joe jumped the bottom-left yellow peg with the bottom-left red peg, then he would need to remove the yellow peg and move the red one to the space above the blue, on the third row.

The game ends when no more moves are possible.

What is the maximum amount of pegs that can be left when the game is over?

Note: I am not asking what the maximum amount of pegs you can have without any possible moves is – you must be able to get to the position by playing the game.

The last one (answer at the bottom of my profile)

Gluing Pyramids

A square pyramid with side lengths equal to 1 and a triangular pyramid (tetrahedron) also with side lengths of 1 are glued together by matching a triangular face of each. How many faces does the new shape have?

Also the time I started talking on forums and really getting into kong and realizing that, wow, there’s like a actual community and stuff, not just 60,000 people playing games. individually at any given time.

Normally, this problem would be solved by counting the number of sides on each shape (4+5=9) and subtracting 2 because of the 2 combined faces to get 7, but in this case there is a little surprise waiting at the end.
(It was originally posted as a problem in a math competition with the correct answer being 7, so don’t feel bad if you got that.)

As you can see by adding an extra square pyramid, the red tetrahedron fits snugly onto the square pyramid, combining the two sides into 1. This happens on both sides, so your final answer is only 7-2=5.
