The triangular numbers that will fit in 4 bits are 1, 3, 6, 10, and 15. However, since 3 Down is twice the value of 2 Across the values 10 and 15 can be eliminated.<br /><br />B) 3 Across is the cube of (4 Down - 2). There are only two cube values that will fit in 4 bits, 1 and 8. If you start with the value 8, then the value of 4 Down has to be 4. However, this causes a problem because 2 Across will be an odd value, and 3 Down is twice the value of 2 Across requiring a '1' bit in the third position of 3 Across.<br /><br />That should be enough to get you to the solution fairly quickly.Erikhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14514993727423832898noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2217022227008948602.post-3354431003368087122009-02-07T12:31:00.000-08:002009-02-07T12:31:00.000-08:00http://img.geocaching.com/cache/807fe869-2e43-4e76...http://img.geocaching.com/cache/807fe869-2e43-4e76-877b-8228a21c366d.jpg<BR/>Please can you tell us the answer to this puzzle.Stevehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18442852437460257785noreply@blogger.com
