Minus' Solution to

Time Flys in Pacifindiana
Posted December 2 - 8, 1996

March 4, 7, 10, 13, and 16 are Amethyst days, so March 16, 2002 is Amethyst.

March 19, 22, 25, 28, 31 and April 3 are also Amethyst days, so April 3, 2002 will be an Amethyst day - a day of work. Oh, well...

Your Solutions

Dan Finley, at the Glenn County Office of Education, presented Minus with an interesting approach to finding the solution. Bravo! (Our mascot finds originality very tasty):

April 3,2001 would be an Amethyst, a day of work. There are 34 days from March 1 to April 3. 34 divided by 3 equals 11 plus 1; therefore, the 34th day would be an Amethyst day.


Although it's not a tasty solution, Minus had to give Emad Miazad [emad.miazad@gs.com] for a correct answer. This is one desperate shark!

Working Day.

Thanks to our new feeders.
