That is flawed. If you get the gold coin, you would get one of the three coins, thus making it false, thus you don’t get the gold coin creating a paradox. Unless you mean you don’t have all of the three coins, in which case getting either the silver or copper coin would still be valid outcomes.

I got 1.414 km somehow but that seems horribly wrong.

After precisely 36 minutes, 27 seconds, and 348 milliseconds, they die at an average rate of 6.09 bacterium per period of 1 minute, 38 seconds, and 934 milliseconds.

Perhaps you should also say that the number is positive. If you square a negative number and then find the square root of that, you will get the absolute value of the negative number.

My answer was 7.
Divide into 5 groups, race each group and take the 2 slowest off each one. Race the fastest of each group together and eliminate the 2 slowest groups. Then the last race becomes a bit complicated. The fastest of the fastest is definitely the fastest. So you race the other 2 dogs of the fastest group, the 2 fastest dogs of the next fastest group, and the fastest dog of the third fastest group. The 2 winners of that race are the 2 other fastest dogs.

Someone please find it so I’m not the single crazy guy here?
“Well these things are really tricky, so I wouldn’t be so sure.”
And you doubted me.

Correct answer is 53130. You have to conduct all possible races before coming to a conclusion.

Well I hardly believe there would be a better answer considering the really low amount of races I used.

I don’t really see how you guys find this tricky. I solved it in 15 minutes, and it allows you to sort the fastest dogs in order.

The answer is obviously (39+38)/2+22+(38+37)/2=1466.

By each of the words do you mean each of the words or each of the phrases?

How would that be possible if there are only 64 squares, I dont get how it would be 128….
1×1
2×2
3×3
4×4
5×5
etc.

Well, if I got an answer without applying it it must mean something. Otherwise it’s an unusual coincidence.
