Call Math When You get a Chance (Part II)
A previous problem offered a phonenumber translation game. The same idea is used again here. For example, 6396284 is NEW MATH!
Please refer to the directions in a previous problem of the week before taking on this challenge. Also, these are a little harder...perhaps:
 2472538744
 2667539
 2665328873
 2668468687
 3374828483
 3687763828
 3722825
 4664657539
 6396284
 8633778263
 4387762
 6584465
 2662378825
 7659466
 3676852
 7347377466
 8377355283
 8648247253
 8648832867
 9468372378
How did you do?
Hint: If you get frustrated, one option is to translate the phone number into all its possiblities, and then try to "spot" a mathematical word within the list.
For example, the number 2543272 translates into:
AJGDAPA
BKHEBQB
CLIFCRC
S
See a mathematical word in this jumbled mess?
AJGDAPA
BKHEBQB
CLIFCRC
S
Solution Commentary: Sorry...I am only willing to state that ALGEBRA was the hidden word in the hint. One of the reasons I am not giving out the answers is that this is more a game than a problem. Plus, it is possible that a given phone number could translate into more than one mathematics word.
If you get overly frustrated, feel free to send me an email.
