I guess it's been a while since I played.<br /><br />It's interesting that I could find such a simple equation to represent my version of the game.Erikhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14025815347427803821noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5604961060703598306.post-76579766333088587942010-04-09T08:36:17.092+09:002010-04-09T08:36:17.092+09:00I don't think that works.
Here are the answers...I don't think that works.<br />Here are the answers you should get.<br /><br />2x2 = 1<br />3x3 = 6<br />4x4 = 20<br />5x5 = 50<br />6x6 = 105<br />7x7 = 196<br />8x8 = 336<br /><br />My answer came out as a sum, not a simple equation.Michaelhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04333846292635122546noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5604961060703598306.post-35762726089719920872010-04-09T07:20:39.171+09:002010-04-09T07:20:39.171+09:00Oh - comment moderation - never mind.Oh - comment moderation - never mind.Erikhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14025815347427803821noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5604961060703598306.post-82153886123507042802010-04-09T07:18:39.379+09:002010-04-09T07:18:39.379+09:00This seemed like a fun little puzzle but it ended ...This seemed like a fun little puzzle but it ended up being harder than I expected. I figured out the NxN case but I'm not going to try the NxM. :-)<br /><br /><br />The equation I ended up with is:<br />(N^3 - 2N^2 + N) / 2Erikhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14025815347427803821noreply@blogger.com
