Treasures of Neopia Guild News
Advent Calendar Day 3:|
"You find 150 Neopoints!!!
You find a Gingerbread Mynci!!!
You also find a Fire Faerie!!!"
Don't forget it's half price day today - I do as always!
Contest discussion and feedback:
Smiles: "Feedback: I still think its hard for some, not everyone is into maths and we have some young members too that may not be able to do that, they might be able to too. All I was saying is make it a little bit easier so all members can have a chance at entering.
Hi Ollie. I wasn't putting you down or anything and I didn't say it was bad question. From my last guild I was in, I had to make sure it was at everyone's level, or in between or else they would stop entering if they don't know how to work it out. Just from the past is what I have been told about contests.
Strchick entered, thats good to see they are still here. be nice to see a post to so we know you are here too. LOL
Anyhow enough of that LOL, thanks for doing the contest, thats from me anyhow hehe."
Ollie: "Well I don't think I did too badly since I had to think up something off the top of my head this time. I thought it was pretty fair cos-
(A) even those without knowledge of maths could guess and have a chance of winning something, like Strchick did in fact
(B) if it was too easy it would just be a competition to see who was online first, and what would be the point of that?
But thanks for the feedback, and don't worry, they won't be all on maths!
Smiles if you read my question again, you will see that in the rules at the bottom it says the best answer will contain both possible answers and be well reasoned, not just guessed- which means, evidently, that you have to send to me how you worked it out. I didn't think it was too hard to guess, as 28 only divides into 3 numbers!
This was Jo's answer-
4 or 7 mins
x(11-x) = 28 - make into equation and solve
(which could have been beaten if someone had spent me the expanded the answer x2 -11x + 28=0, (x-4)(x-7)=0 )
Sorry if that was a bit hard, it'll be better once I get home and have books of puzzles to plagiarise!"
"Sounds good!!! HEY for the holidays I'll spruce up the reward to 20,000 Neopoints split between the two winners. I want to finish before Christmas so we will need to have 3 nominees this week and two will leave."
Ollie is ill :(
Ollie: "I think 2 winners is best, that way its still a competition, there's more incentive to be active etc. and getting rid of two members next time's not a bad idea either... the HOH will be competitive!"
Me: "The amount of winners depends on when you want to finish. If you speed it up and maybe eliminate 2 players in the next round it could be over by Xmas, whose left in btw?"
Smiles: "2 winners would be better, then it makes everyone who wants the np to get there act together hehe and be more active. Tiger says not many are active."
Elephante: "I think there should be 2 or 3 winners...how many active players are there left????"
