Difficulty:*** (3.03)



You roll five dice. The computer calculates the score. Your job is to find out what the computer based the score on.

If you roll 5, 4, 6, 3, and 5, the score is 10.

If you roll 1, 3, 3, 4, and 2, the score is 4.

If you roll 1, 6, 2, 6, and 4,the score is 0.

What is the method?

here is one of the many online versions (this one is javascript, but there are also flash/shockwave versions out there): http://member.melbpc.org.au/~lborrett/computing/petals-j.htm

There are many other solutions possible, though not as simple nor related to the name of the teaser. For example: if a, b, c. d, and e are the 5 rolls of the die: the answer is: (38/12)a + b + c + (5/12)d - (41/12)e

I first saw this one as a flash version, got the answer right in a couple of seconds, although I think it's easier when you got the image the dices. Not sure about that though :) Nice puzzle to tease your friends with :wink:
