"And welcome back to Guess That Number! Before the break Mr. Pok got to the 1 million dollar question! So, Mr. Pok how are you feeling?"
"Very nervous Bill, very nervous," replied Mr. Pok.
"Okay Mr. Pok, you know what to do. We'll put a set of clues on are screen, and you must figure out what number we're talking about! Today, the mystery number is represented by A. Mr. Pok, if you can figure out what number A stands for in 2 minutes or less, we'll give you 1 million dollars! Are you ready?" asked Bill.
"I hope so," answered Mr. Pok.
"Okay! The clues are on our screen! On your mark! Get set! GO!" screamed Bill.
Mr. Pok turned around and faced the screen. My challenge to you is can you help Mr. Pok win the million dollar prize? Here are the clues given to Mr. Pok:
1. 100 is larger than A.
2. A is larger than 30.
3. A is a multiple of 6.
4. The sum of A's digits is 9.
5. The number in the tens place is larger than the number in the ones place.
6. The difference between A's digits is 1.
Mr. Pok figured out the answer and scribbled it down on the notebook in front of him right when the buzzer sounded. He raised his answer for all to see.
"Congratulations Mr. Pok! You have won 1 million dollars!" Bill said into the microphone.
What number did Mr. Pok write in the notebook?

the explanation is much longer than it needs to be. the digits of any number less than 100 that is a multiple of nine add up to nine. therefore you could skip step 3 entirely, except that it lends to the answer of 6 x 9.

i think this is awsome but ui remember doing this in 3rd grade.

kinda of hard

I figured it out by elimination (or whatever the word would be).

I knew it was larger than 30, but less than 100. And it had to be a multiple of 6. I was also thinking to the "9" rule where the two digits add up to 9. 36 - nope, won't work. 72 - won't work. Then I read the clue about tens place and ones place and I finally figured it out.

Good puzzle. I only needed clues # 1, 2, 4, & 6. Actually only needed to know that it is two digits, they add up to 9, the tens is bigger, and they differ by 1.

Don't forget to send me a message saying what subject you want me to do on a quiz!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice one. Although given that clue 6 only makes sense in the context of two-digit numbers ("difference" is a binary operation), all you really need are clues 3, 4 and 6: a multiple of 6 and 9 where the difference between digits is 1. (Someone already pointed out that sum of digits = 9 means a multiple of 9)

Very nice teaser. I liked it.

I love these types of teasers!! good one!!
Jul 30, 2007

I got it!
Aug 19, 2007

Not bad, but quite easy. Some of those clues are redundant!

So what do I win for doing it in 14 seconds...most of which was spent reading the clues not doing math?

Sheesh any program that had that as the million dollar question couldn't afford the prize insurance.
