Atypical week – returning home on Tuesday. Too tired to do the Thursday thinking… So, here is a simpler math puzzle. Using 8,8,3 and 3, can you get 24? You are allowed to use only plus, minus, multiply and divide. Strictly speaking, parentheses should be allowed too. But that is it. Private message me if you know/found the answer.
It appears that I have not run a race for a full 1 year. I am not sure about it. I might have forgotten to post some of the races. In any case, like every year, I went to run the July 4th Freedom Run in Woodstock this year. I also had my close friend from Dallas Sunil Roy who was visiting us with his family join us!!
By my clock I posted 24min 15 secs but took quite some time to get to the starting line. The usual festivities and celebrations were there. Sunil and I hung around for a little while as we enjoyed the crowd.
Familiar Thursday evening situation: On a flight returning home. Have not posted a puzzle in some time. So, here is one…
What is the next number in the following sequence?
4, 6, 12, 18, 30, 42, 60, 72, 102, …
(If you know the answer send me a personal message)
Disclaimer: I remember this puzzle vividly from my college days because after two days I simply gave up 🙁
