Guest Post By Jamie

Let’s test the brain power of you guys. Below are 4 equations, each relatively hard. If you can get all four right, I’ll, err, umm, well, I’ll sort out a prize. 🙂

(Find answer)

(Find ‘?’)

x=\left( 56 \times 32 \right)^{x} (Find ‘X’)

(Find ‘?’)

Don’t forget to read Legoless’ Poptropica Post Update, and Halloween Post

**UPDATE**

Since no-one believes 3 is possible, I’m adding a 5th question, which will replace 3. It’s quite an easy question, and only needs about 3 calculations to work out:

Go on, try it!

Find ‘C’

    I’m pretty sure that you either copied this out of an A-Level maths book, copypasted from wikipedia or mashed the keyboard. I’d like you to tell me the answer. >_>

      cannot be 49!! because 8 to the power of 0 is 0 so if you times it by anything then it will be 0.

      im guessing though. ive never been good at maths

      • 11. Yellow Crown  |  November 11, 2009 at 1:13 pm

        nope, 8 to the power of 0 is 1!

      • 12. legoless  |  November 14, 2009 at 5:55 pm

        The answer to question 4 is 49 because:
        7 to the power of 2 is 49.
        Anything to the power of 0 is 1.
        1*49=49

          yes well, i was assuming that 8 to the power of 0 would be 0 but im not THAT smart.

    Just for the record, 3 cant be answered. 1792 to any power cannot equal said power.
    legoless: Maybe a decimal power? Wouldn’t that divide it?…

      3 is possible. I’m putting up an answers post on Tuesday – If anyone can work out three by then, they get the prize, since 1, 2 and 4 have already been worked out

    THE ANSWER TO NUMBER THREE IS 4.785 HA!

    Reply
  • 31. legoless  |  November 14, 2009 at 9:14 pm

    Fail. You gave the wrong formula for 3. It should have been:
    x= (56*32) to the power of 1/x
    Because the one you have up there is impossible. If you do it out like you have above it gives you a massive decimal number. (1792 to the power of 785 gives little calculators nightmares for life. Even the first part to the power of 4 is huge.)

    the answer to the original # 3 is at http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=x%3D(56*32)^x
