What do the four numbers 1, 2, 6 and 10 have in common that no other numbers do?

I dunno, what do you reckon..

BTW this IS a serious question posed to me...

The ONLY answer some1 else came up with was LC multiples. (120)...but this was obviously wrong.3,5,10,12 spoil his answer.

Any guesses?

2. I have been trying to think this one over. Where did you get this problem, it is very good. I'm quite into my problem solving, but can't get this one though.

3. DENE! if you dont know the answer then the world is going to end!

Hows the preperation for the new term going?

Hope you have managed to write the best AI program in the world..................

Oh yes, i booked my hols today....fancy a beer next week..it's payday on a week Thursday for me.........

Let me know

4. Oh and you DO NOT live in a cold student house...looked kinda warm to me. (when i gave you a lift that one time, for all u weido's out there!)

5. It is cold when I can't afford the gas, and all I've got is coffee and c++ (ahhh, that's the life.) Anyway, txt u tomorrow. I never got round to doing this question. I'll get it.

Simple enough, they're all three letter words.

Here's another one.

Where are these sums correct?: 11+2=1, 9+4=1

-Prelude

7. in the planet of the stupids, mars!

8. Or on a clock .

9. Because cigars cannot be entirely smoked, a hobo who collects cigar butts can make a cigar to smoke out of every 5 butts that he finds. Today, he has collected 25 cigar butts. How many cigars will he be able to smoke?

10. 6, and will have one butt left over.

From the 25, he makes 5 cigars which he smokes, giving him 5 butts.

From the 5 butts, he makes a cigar, which he smokes, giving him a butt.

>Where are these sums correct?: 11+2=1, 9+4=1

on a 4-bit machine using two's complement. A signed variable holding a binary value greater than 8 is negative. Add the 4 or 2, and you get 1 using two's complement. I think, you might get -1, I'm not sure...

12. >What do the four numbers 1, 2, 6 and 10 have in common that >no other numbers do

they each belong to the set {1, 2, 6, 10}

13. Simple enough, they're all three letter words.

Thanks Prelude........

AGGGHHH a FEW of us have tried to suss that out for a while now.! Oh MAN ...............
