January 23, 2014 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone,

I have never heard of "train" questions before, so I won't even TRY to answer the questions. Looks hard.

The day is here! The tally is finally 10!

In how many ways can you rearrange the leters of "alejandro" such that it contains one of the words "ned" or "den"?

In the following sequence, what is the value of m?

-4, 8, m, 32...

Please place solutions here or in the comments section.

The tally is 7.

Should I keep giving you hard questions, or do you want easier ones?

What is the value of 1+1? Again, think real carefully.

(#183.) The graph of a linear equation contains the points (1,a), (2,b), (4,18). What is the value of (3/2 b) -a?

January 19, 2014 by 3primetime3

Hi everyone!

The current tally is 6.

How many times can you subtract 5 from 25? Think carefully.

Note that (3 - sqrt 5)(3 + sqrt 5)= 9-5 = 4. Thus x times (3+sqrt 5 )/2 = 1, so x+1/x = 3. Squaring both sides, we obtain the equation x^2+2+x^-2= 9. So, x^2 + x^-2 = 7. Squaring both sides again, we find that x^4+2+x^-4=49, so x^4+x^-4=47. Squaring both sids one last time, we find that x^8+2+x^-8 = 2209, so x^8+1/x^8 = 2207.

It was not an irrational number! YAY!

Hey everyone,

This is going to get annoying, but my cousins say that this rule is going to get a lot of you people after a while:

Starting now until I decide to end this rule, every tenth question of the day that I divide for separate users, add five to your answer. For example, if you see questions labeled for another person to do– that means you don’t have to do it, and the question of the day is “divided” into parts. Make sure YOU keep a close tally!

A number n is randomly chosen from the set {1, 2, 3, …, 24, 25}. What is the probability that the equation x2 + nx + 24 = 0 has two integer solutions? Express your answer as a common fraction.

• Implementing a New Idea for The Questions of the Day

December 31, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone,

I am going to implement a new idea on my question of the day idea.

It is ACHIEVEMENT PACKAGES!

If you answer an insanely hard or extra credit question correctly, you earn one of these. They can do the following:

• You can use one to promote your score by converting it to +25 points.
• You can use one to attack one other player by knocking off 50 points.
• You can use one to steal 15 points from another player.
• You can use one to defend all attacks for one (1) day.

I am giving everybody one of these packages to try it out. They will be rare in the future. To use one, simply write in the comments section below the current question of the day what you want to do with a current package (if you have one) and/or who you want to direct it to.

December 24, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone, This question will go on until 12/25/2013.

I believe the answer is not 16, it is 25. But why?!?!?!

Okay, let's start off by analyzing 1 + 4 = 9. We see that (sqrt)1 + (sqrt)4 = (sqrt)9, right? Making 1 + 2 = 3.

Now, what is 4 + 9? (sqrt)4 + (sqrt)9 = n^2, meaning 2 + 3 = 5^2 = 25. Only Blueeighthnote got it correct. Nice try to those who answered.

December 21, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey guys,

Julianthewiki:  I am kind of disappointed that you have updated the blog post a little too late.  I thought I asked you to update it yesterday.  Maybe you were busy.  Also, do  not show any proof of how you got your answer.  This will ruin it for everyone else.  It's okay.  Everyone makes mistakes.  No hard feelings.

How much dirt is there in a cylindrical hole measuring r=10 cm and h=7 cm?  Use 22/7 as an approximation for pi.

Difficulty - Considerably easy

As Julianthewiki stated, the answer to yesterday's question is 3.

• The Question of the Day -12/18/2013

December 19, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone!

Response to Blueeighthnote:  There are more than three correct answers, but I was only looking for three.

These are really fun problems I want to share with you guys.

This is the last time I will put multiple questions of the day for one day.

If there are 31 apples in a bowl and you take 4, how many apples do you have?

You walk into a room where there are 3 people who are 5 years old, 4 people who are 15 years old, 6 who are 13 years old, and 2 who are 18 years old. How many people are in the room?

At Umpaloompa's Tree Store, all of the Christmas trees are 60% off. Linka bought a tree and paid \$102.40. Assuming theres no tax, what was the original price of the tree that Linka purchased?

COMPLETE ALL 4 OF THESE QUESTIONS CORRECTLY TO…

December 18, 2013 by 3primetime3

Sup people!

I am happy to say 2 people got the right answer - TimBluesWin and Blueeighthnote!

There are three questions on this blog post.  The first two are the questions of the day, and the third is optional XD

And, where are you Imamadmad?

• What is the value of 2*2*2*2*5*5?  Express your answer to the nearest tenth, if necessary.

Difficulty - Very Easy

• Umpaloompa's prison, housing exactly x prisoners in x cells numbered 1 through x (x is the answer to question of the day 1), has a mental warden.  On the date 13/32/3016, when all of the prisoners are asleep and all of their doors are locked, the warden toggles the locks on all of their doors from 1 through x.  That means, if the doors are locked, he unlocks the door, and if the doors are unlock…

• The Question of the Day - 12/16/2013

December 17, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to clarify - you ARE allowed to use other materials to help you solve these questions.  The only thing that you may NOT use is a calculator to solve questions (or anything of that sort).

From now on, if I mistype my username (ex. ~3primetime3- or -3pirmetime3-) AT THE END OF THE BLOG POST- if there is one, the answer to the question (regardless of what the question states), is 333.  If the whole entire blog post is italicized and my name is mistyped, then the answer to that question (regardless of what the question is, is 338).

Erica gets on an airplane in the Phillipines at exactly 6:30 AM.  She gets off the plane in England at exactly 7:45 PM.  How long was she on the plane?

• The Question of the Day - 12/15/2013

December 16, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hi everyone!

Now since the confusion is over, now I think everything can return to normal now.

From now on, if I sign my name with tildes (~) instead of dashes (-), the answer to the question, no matter what the question states, is 33.  If I sign my name with tildes and italicize the whole blog post, the answer to the question, not matter the question states, is 33+5 or 38.

If January 1st is a Tuesday, what day is May 27th?

The correct answer was either 14 or 16.  I wasn't specific.  Sorry about that!  I rewarded Imamadmad 15 points for the question for the confusion.

December 14, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone,

This is my second time typing this.  This is disappointing, since I have to type this whole thing again twice.  GEEZALOO!

From now on, whenever I sign my name (known as -3primetime3-) at the end of the blog post article, the answer to the question is always 3 (well, obviously), regardless of what the question is.  If everything I CAN POSSIBLY  type on the whole blog post is italicized and I sign my name (on the same blog post), the answer to the question is 5+3 or 8, regardless of what the question is.

How many integers are there from 15 to 30?  PLEASE POST YOUR ANSWER ON MY MESSAGE WALL, SINCE THE COMMENTS SECTION DOES NOT WORK (FOR SOME REASON) ON THIS BLOG POST

December 14, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hi guys,

I wonder why some people are dropping out.  Is this getting boring?  If so, please tell me IMMEDIATELY, so I can discontinue this.  If no one is interested, this is not a good idea for the future users.

I HAVE FAITH IN YOU GUYS, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT LIKE THIS!

In the grandest city of Umpaloompa, Umpaloompians use currency to purchase things in their stores.  This is their system.  If one oompaloompa is equivalent to 3 junkawunkas, and 2 junkawunkas equal 4 fushisquooshis, and if 5 fushisquooshis is the same as 10 donimotos, and each donimoto  is equal to 2 doughchinos, how many doughchinos are in 20 oompaloompas?

Difficulty:  This question is easy covered in funny words.  So I rank it medium.  Don't let the weird words fool you!

December 13, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone,

I wonder why a lot of people stopped participating.  Are you guys getting bored?  Well, hope this question stimulates your brain a little.  It is hard making math questions fun!

What is the product of x and y if x^2 + y^2 = 36 - 2xy and x^2 - y^2 = 12 ?

Difficulty: Easy

I believe the previous solution was 4, not 2013 or 8.  If you disagree, PLEASE state why.

If 4 people paints 4 walls in 4 minutes, assuming these people are professional and paints at a constant rate, that means 1 person paints 1 wall in 4 minute.  All of them work together at the same time.  They do not take turns painting each wall.  Therefore, changing the ratio to 2013 painters with 2013 walls, it still doesn't change how many minutes the person takes.  The ans…

• The Question of the Day - 12/11/2013

December 12, 2013 by 3primetime3

Hey everyone,

The last question of the day is to see who would use a calculator or who would actually read the blog post.  I am sort of disappointed that people would use calculators to solve such an easy question like the last one.  Please do not use calculators in the future.  All questions (except for the checkpoint questions) should be solvable without a calculator.

Hope that stresses that enough.

A group of 4 people can paint 4 in 4 minutes.  How long does it take 2013 people to paint 2013 walls?

The answer was 5.  Read the directions!!!!!  When the whole blog post is italicized, the answer to the question is 5, no matter what the question states.  Congrats Blueeighthnote!  You are a math wizard!

Hi everyone,

The checkpoint session is over and must now continue.  Let's congratulate Blueeighthnote for his genious in solving 2 out of the 4 questions.

The difficulty will cool off now, and everyone is welcome to answer this next question!

Be sure to come back everyday since there is always a new question everyday waiting for you to solve!

Note:From now on, if the whole blog post I CAN POSSIBLY TYPE is italiced, the answer to the question is 5, no matter what the question says.

Define n! as n(n-1)(n-2)...(2)(1).  For example, 5! is 5*4*3*2*1=120.

What is 100!  ?  Express your answer in scientific notation.

Difficulty: Very easy

Thank you for all who participated or commented for the checkpoint.  Your  feedback and answers mean a lot, and I will…

Hey everyone,

This is the first checkpoint of the question of the day.  In this blog, I am asking you for your opinion about the Question of the Day.  Is it too hard?  Or is it too easy? Or is it just right?  Is this a good idea for this wiki?  Is the pace too slow or fast?   Any suggestions or compliments will be taken.

Hey everyone!

I am proud to say that one of our users has gotten the correct answer to the last question.  Congratulations Blueeighthnote!  The answer was 25!  *applause*  How did you get the answer?  I want to know.  Is it the same as how I solved it (see the bottom)?  Please respond in the comments section with your current answer.

For everyone else: even if you didn't get the right answer, there is still many chances to earn points!  Hard questions are hard!

Let's cool this down a little.

Hey everyone!

Here is the next question of the day!  This is probably the first tough one!

What must be the answer to this question?

Hint:  there is a logical and numerical response.

Reminder:  Just give me your answer.  When I post the next question of the day, then you can talk about it XD

Difficulty - Hard

I am sorry to say that the no one got the right answer to the last question of the day.  The answer was not 4, but 16.

Now, whenever a registered user gets a question wrong, I will show a step-by-step solution.

1. 2 is the smallest prime number, not 1.

2.  Cubing a number means that you multiply that number by itself three times.  In this case, 2*2*2=8

6.  Note that dividing by half is different than dividing by two.  If you divide by two, then…
