Trivia Puzzle 1: What do these manga names mean:
easy – 5: Katsu
easy – 5: Fuyu
impossible – 60: Naruya

 
Flag Post

Naruya itself could mean multiple stuff from Japanese. I do know a few rules of Japanese. There are no L’s, and Japanese verbs always end in an U.

Naru- means to roar, to become or to reach, among other things.

-Ya, I happen to know is a separate word, meaning melting or arrow.

To become an arrow, To reach like an arrow, to roar like an arrow. I’ll submit all 3 and hope I’m right.

Edit: Reading back now, it could also mean That is where it is.

Fatsu, easy. - Tsu, one. Fa -, File. One file.

And Fuyu, which it still feels like here. Winter.

Trivia Puzzle 3: Math pt 2

hard – 30: At a party, everyone shook hands with everybody else. There were 66 handshakes. How many people were at the party?

impossible – 60: Every day, a teenage girl goes to work. Assume last year she had no money, and kept it up to now. Then she spends 1/2 of her money on clothes, then 1/3 of the remaining money on Steam games, and then 1/4 of the remaining money on rent for the apartment. After she bought all of that, she had $7777 left. Assuming she only gets money by work, how much money does she earn every month?

hard – 30: According to the question above, how much does she get a year?

So whoever happens to be online when you post gets the points? That seems fair.

Also, you didnt close the bracket in the thread title and it bothers me.

Math:

1) 11.
2) $2592.333
3) $31108

Guessed a bit on 2 and 3.

Fix’d.

Handshake question: 12. The equation is easy: We just need to add all numbers from 1 to (number of people-1), which is (1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11)=1+10+2+9+3+8+4+7+5+6+11=11×6=66.

Would do the rest, but I gtg, so they’re up for grabs. They’re also easy.

Trivia Puzzle 4: Math again.
impossible – 60: A guy says, “My grandson is about as many days as my son in weeks, and my grandson is as many months as I am in years. My grandson, my son and I together are 120 years.” How old is the guy in years?

 
Flag Post

A = Man’s age. B= Son’s Age. C= Grandson’s age.
A + B + C = 120

Since A is a variable everything relies on it stays, but since C is reliant on A and B is reliant on C, so I can subitute those out for formulas that rely on A instead.

C=A/12, Months

B=(C*30)/7

A + (((A/12)*30)/7) + (A/12) = 120



Using a function calculator, I determine my set to this formula, set to steps of 10 between 0 and 100, I find it is between 80 and 90. Now, going 1 step between those, I find 83 is 119.55, and 84 is 121.


After doing it twice more, I find the answer is 83.31 years old.

This would make the grandson 6.9425 years old, and the son 29.7536.
Now to plug it into my original value.
A + B + C = 120
83.31 + 6.9425 + 29.7536 = 120
120.0061 = 120. Close enough, eh?
(It’s quite close to hell typing all this on a phone. It’s nice that I was good at calculus as a kid, though, as math was not a pain. Nice to see I’m not rusty.)

Since you did say “about”, and not exactly, anti’s solution should be close, but incorrect.

The man’s age is 83, the son’s age is 30, and the grandson’s age is 7.

Also, Anti, in your ending statement, you exchanged the grandson’s and the son’s age.

Wrong, wrong, wrong.
Answer is 72.
Trivia puzzle 5: Math again again
easy – 5: Using eight eights and addition only, can you make 1000?

Can you find a seven digit number which describes itself. The first digit is the number of zeros in the number. The second digit is the number of ones in the number, etc. For example, in the number 21200, there are 2 zeros, 1 one, 2 twos, 0 threes and 0 fours.

I want to know this as well. I affirm that hamuka’s answer (12) is correct.
