IE?s Arakoua Arithmetic Adventure! Here at IE we really like learning, just a few weeks ago the lovely pirate Monehmaker taught me that island names should be capitalized as they are proper nouns and I felt enlightened! Therefore this event was constructed by the fabulous MISSMELLON so that every pirate can experience the joy that is learning through a crazy math adventure through all the buildings on Arakoua. The Goal: The goal of this event is to solve math problems to eventually locate a SECRET item somewhere on the island to become SAGE?s OFFICAL MATH MAESTRO How it Works: In some building there will be two math problems. The solution to the first problem (which will be an integer) will indicate which letter of the building?s name is used in the final answer. The solution to the second problem (which will also be an integer) will tell you in which position that letter goes in the final answer. The letters and numbers will indicate the name of an object you must find. Once you find that object you must draw a picture of it and send a PM with where you found it(and all of your work) to lastfarewell. You must also post in the forums (after your PM is sent) that you have completed the event (this way if I didn't get your PM I can make sure we figure out what went wrong).  Example  Say you are in ?Iron Age?. You see in the news that the first math problem is (2416)/2) and the second math problem is (2.5*2)+1)/3) . The solution to the first math problem is 4. In the building name the fourth letter is N (iroN age). Therefore N is a letter in the name of the object you are looking for. The solution to the second math problem is 2. This solution indicates that the position of the letter you found in the name of the object by solving the first problem is 2. Therefore by solving both of these clues you know that N must be the second letter in the name of the object.  HINT: Spaces Count. (If the answer to the first problem was 5 you would have a space in position 2 instead of an N) Remember your PM should include: 1. Your Pirate Name 2. The building name where you found math problems 3. The math problems and their respective solutions. 4. Your final answer as to what the object is 5. Your drawing of the object (photobucket/imageshack links work the best) Sample PM: Lissanna Cow Hall 1+0=1 0+1=1 Bat House 1+1=2 20=2 Pot Place 2+1=3 1+1+1=3 The final object is the cat in the inn. My super artistic rendering of a cat : here Prizes : IE will assign all correct entries a random number (via RANDOM.org). The first randomly chosen correct entry will recieve: A study room set! (A fancy Desk, Fancy Chair, Large Fancy Display case and a warming fireplace!) along with a 200k prize and a secret halloween treat! Three more randomly chosen correct entries will each receive: 75k, a random study furni item, and a secret halloween treat. Start Time and Deadlines: The equations will be posted in the buildings by 7pm GT on Sunday 10/29/2011 (will update this post when they are all posted). The deadline for entry submissions is Wednesday 11/2/2011 at 7pm GT. MERRY MATHING!

The more work you can show as to how you arrived at your answer the better however I do not need full proofs. Edit Equations have been posted. Good Luck!

Sorry for the double post It has come to my attention that the equations in Stonehenge, Kalahari deposits, Canyou Canyon and Homo Erecthis were incorrect they have been fixed :D Sorry mates. To make up for the confusion the prize money for correct answers has been increased and the deadline extended.

I was going to attempt this event but after finding more than 24 problems and a second error in an equation it was too much of brain drain for me. for anyone else attempting here is how far I got. IM 1. 4(x)=12. 2+xy=3. x+y+z=15. (4(x)z+y)3= 4(3)=12. 2+32=3. 3+2+10=15. (4(3)10+2)3=1 4+12123 2. (4+6+5)/33=. 4+6+5/33=1 palace 1. 6/3*42+6 6/3.4=82+6=12 2. 81*2+1 81.2+1=7 Real Estate Homo 1. ((76)+4*23)+1 ((76)+4 · 23)+1=7 2. 3^310 3^3=2710=17 bank 1. (1+1+(1*3))*2+(.5*2) (1+1+(1 · 3)) · 2+(.5 · 2)=11 2.((3*2)+3)/3+3 (3.2)+3/3+3=6 1. 3^21*2+3 3sq1 .2+3=10 2. (1+23+5)1 33+51 =4 shipyard 1. (7+3)5)/2.5 error, equation should read ((7+3)5)/2.5 disclaimer..no responsibilty taken for incorrect solution.  cuthroatcaz Sage Ocean  [Edit 2 times, last edit by wenchcaz at Oct 31, 2011 7:34:32 AM] 


whatway

I am having a problem with Cayonu Canyon's equation. Sent you a pm but the forums lagged as it was sent. Hopefully you got it.  Contrary Sage

Everything should be fixed now as I have gone through the equations personally and checked each one again. However since I am TERRIBAD at basic math and thus sympathize with those of you working so diligently on this event the prize money has been increased and the deadline extended. Please do NOT post any of your work here so that others may have a chance to work things out for themselves. Thank you. Again I apologize for the incorrect equations I was assured they were correct before I posted this event but should of triple checked them again. Since I cannot change the news in the sy until one of our other royals logs on to push the vote through The first equation in Canyou Canyon should read : (SquareRoot(3^23))^2 Also there should be an extra open parenthesis at the SY :( (7+3)5)/2.5  Lissanna of Sage QUEEN of Illium Eternae I type in runon sentences :) Dwizzles tells ye, "guys have weiners. girls have not weiners" Dwizzles tells ye, "its not that hard of a concept"

I also am very sorry for anything that was incorrect. Self checking math is a death :( Hope it is fun for all dispite these slight issues :D  I deleted my pirate because I got a slightly less depressing real life. (But I made a mistreated and under used new one)
