The Question of the Day - 20 points

A painter takes two days to paint a room (all four walls and the ceiling). If he works at the same pace, how many days will it take him to paint a room that is twice as wide, twice as long, and twice as high? Calculators are permitted.

Lucky Prime Hint: "If you're paying attention, you'll realize almost immediately that what the writer is saying is ... ABSOLUTELY NOTHING."


The answer is 855. It is not necessary to find the particular sums involved here. The sum of all the units digits in any "decade" is 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 = 45. There are 9 of these decades among the two-digit numbers so that is 9*45=405 so far. The sum of all the tens digits is 10*1 + 10*2 + 10*3 + ... + 10*9 = 10 (1 + 2 + ... + 9) = 10*45=450. Putting the units digits and the tens digits together, we get a sum of 405 + 450 = 855.

Blueeighthnote got the challenge question correct.

And I forgot to make a Lucky Prime. Sorry! There is a lucky prime this time.
