Suppose there was a place in Neopia where one could get free jelly. We know of no such place, and surely it doesn't really exist, but just for fun, let's pretend it's real. While you only get one jelly per day through the rest of the year, this hypothetical jelly-obtaining place has special rules for the Month of Relaxing. Mondays, you get twice as many jellies as the previous day. Tuesdays, you get four more jellies than the previous Tuesday. Wednesdays, you get three jellies. Thursdays, you get the number of jellies that you've already obtained during the month. Fridays, you get eleven jellies for the first Friday, twice that for the second Friday, etc., Saturdays, you get three times the sum of the previous two days' jellies. And Sunday, you get the average of the previous seven days, rounded

__up__to the nearest integer.**How many jellies can you obtain during the month of Relaxing?**Please enter a number with no punctuation or other information, otherwise your answer will be marked wrong!

__Answer : 76794__*Due to the unclarity of the question, there seems to be more than one answer. Check the comments for the other solutions.*

So, who here is good at math?

ReplyDeleteOhhh i've done these before. They kill my brain, though O;

ReplyDeletemonth of relaxing is june...30 days in june

ReplyDeletejune 1st was on a wednesday

i just tried. had 1 number on sunday ;_; i gave up after that :(

ReplyDeletemy friend said she already did it! DX

ReplyDeleteso, what's the answer?

ReplyDeleteshe wont tell me of course :(

ReplyDeleteI wonder if your friend got the same answer I got. By putting it into a spreadsheet, I was able to figure out the math easier.

ReplyDeleteThe question is missing some info, at least to me. To correctly answer, you need to know what day the 1st of the month starts on.

ReplyDeleteI just tried to work it out and got 76458. I'm not sure it that's right though...

ReplyDelete^That's what I got.

ReplyDeletethe month had to start on a wednesday, which it does.

ReplyDeleteStill working it out, anyone else confrim 76458.

ReplyDeleteSo what about the "first" days, like the first monday? Is this just 1 jelly?

ReplyDeleteMine was higher, but no idea if it was right.

ReplyDeleteOk, this is math and I'm not good at this, sorry guys, wish I could help.

ReplyDelete^ I believe it can be assumed that they are talking about the current month which started on a Wednesday.

ReplyDeletethe month starts on a wednesday.

ReplyDelete30193172?

ReplyDelete^ whoa. thats alot of jelly.

ReplyDeletei got 45316

ReplyDeleteWhat about the first tuesday..."4x more than the last tuesday.." sooooo 1 or 0?

ReplyDeleteI got 126770 Jellies...Though I may have made a mistake

ReplyDeleteTuesdays says four more jellies so its +4. and since the previous tuesday was in the last month, we only got 1 jelly...so for the first tuesday of this month it would be 1+4 = 5 jellies

ReplyDeleteTuesdays isn't 4 times, but 4 more than the previous, so the first would be 5.

ReplyDelete76794?? Probably made a few errors since I had to use calculator online.

ReplyDeleteOhhhh my fault...but how do we know that we did it last tuesday? :P

ReplyDelete^that tuesday isn't in june (month of relaxing), so it's only +4 jellies.

ReplyDeleteI got 76794... I have to check it again though...

ReplyDelete^ For Tuesday it says 4 more not 4x more so it would be 4+1 for the last Tuesday of the previous month meaning that the first Tuesday is 5. I think.

ReplyDeleteThis is all conjecture on Neopet's rules for this.

I'm just making the assumption that we are getting jellies everyday and its a continuous thing...though I may be mistaken. B/c sundays are the average of the previous 7 days...would you just use the previous 4 for the first week?

ReplyDeleteWhat does "Fridays, you get eleven jellies for the first Friday, twice that for the second Friday, etc." mean? Does that mean 33 or 44 for Fri #3?

ReplyDeleteI would assume you would do the previous seven days, with one for each day that was in a different month.

ReplyDeletei got 10986

ReplyDeleteI got 85482.

ReplyDelete^ it would be 44 for the third friday. 11 for the first friday, 22 for the second (11 x 2), 44 for the third (22 x 2), etc.

ReplyDeletei understood the friday thing to be 2x11 for the second friday, 3x11 for the third friday, 4x11 for the fourth...

ReplyDeleteFor sundays (The second one) It says to average the last 7 days...so go back to what day? Last Sunday too?

ReplyDeletethat's incorrect, since it states "Fridays, you get eleven jellies for the first Friday, twice THAT for for the second Friday, etc." so whatever your previous number of jellies was on friday, you would multiply it by x2.

ReplyDeleteUnless it meant twice that, then three times that, then four times that, that being 11.

ReplyDeleteI got 63,519

ReplyDeletei don't think it's 76458 because that's what I got the first time, but that's by just rounding the sunday average, not rounding up, the way it is written, the number on sunday should always be rounded up.

ReplyDeleteAlso I think the fridays is 1x11, 2x11, 3x11, etc....

^ that was my thinking... I assumed that the "that" was referring to the 11, not the total for friday if that makes sense.

ReplyDeletei got 690334

ReplyDeleteAlso I just realized something funny, if neopets really wanted to mess with us, there are lots of answers to this question, it asks how many can you get during the month of relaxing, not the maximum number you can get, so you can get 1 jelly, 2, etc. all the way up to the max... I don't think this is what they want, but it is amusing to think about...

ReplyDeleteIt's purposely written so that either interpretation of Friday could be correct. You'll just have to go with your gut on this one and decide how to calculate that part yourselves.

ReplyDeletei got : 3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,160,44,88,9,3,514,33,1641,925,1850,13,3,5493 ... so its all 10986

ReplyDeletei got : 3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,160,44,88,9,3,514,33,1641,925,1850,13,3,5493 ... so its all 10986

ReplyDelete-

that second saturday is wrong. it cant be 160 because 22+94 = 116*3 = 348

I got 69944...

ReplyDeleteassuming the 1*11, 2*11, 3*11....

and assuming on sundays you average the last SEVEN days, including the previous sunday.

I got 76794 with friday being 11, 22, 33, etc.

ReplyDelete^what your thursdays? I got 77364 (close, someone's got a math mistake somewhere...probably me)

ReplyDeleteDAMN DAMN DAMN!

ReplyDeleteI forgot about in the first Sunday, I could have included the days in May also... :( Messed up...

thursdays were 3, 94, 786, 5581, 38397

ReplyDeletei used excel, and confident in the math. Not confident in the interpretation of the neopet team's wording though, somewhat ambiguous.

I got 7785

ReplyDeletewith

3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,348,71,142,9,3,783,44,2481,505,1010,13,3,5622,88,17130,3482,6964,17,3,

38928

Ok I have 3 94 786 but then for my fourth and fifth thursdays I have 5623 and 38682... I will go recheck my math. I'm using excel too.

ReplyDeleteOk, I got 76794 too It was my mistake (on rounding)

ReplyDeleteits really not that hard i have a 4.0 gpa in college i got 3745Blank for the last number send Evil_elf_666 some money and ill give it to you

ReplyDeleteI GOT 78144

ReplyDeleteThis is assuming for the first sunday that you're counting all 7 days, ie some 1's in there from the previous month, and fridays being 11x2 22x2 44x2 ect. I've double checked it.

I will now try with fridays just as 11x2 11x3 (but I don't think thats what TNT meant...) be careful when doing thursdays!

Ah, good, my number is then confirmed? Well that was a PITA, I hope I got a trophy...

ReplyDeletelol too many numbers floating around..if you said 76794 then yes I got the same thing... I've submitted. now we wait :P

ReplyDeleteI got 77856... The same as a couple of anonymous above me.

ReplyDeletei got 46573

ReplyDeleteSo is the answer 76794?

ReplyDeleteCarolyn - using your theory I got your answer, so I'm assuming our maths are right, but it will depend on whose interpretation of friday is right! we shall see...

ReplyDeleteSo whats the answer? We have like 10 different ones..

ReplyDeleteYAY! Thanks anany for confirming my numbers I'm so confused looking up and seeing all this mumbo jumbo. Hence I used my name so I could tell who I was in the mess haha

ReplyDeleteBy doing fri 11x2 11x3 ect I got 76794

And now to decided which friday rule to go with....

I was the anonymous that initially posted 76794, which was confirmed by another anonymous on friday theory 11,22,33. Problem is, I also agree that Carolyn may be right. So it is up to you to decide whether her interpretation of friday or mine is correct.

ReplyDeleteremember, the number is rounded up. if is 76453, for example, maybe 76000, or 76500...

ReplyDeleteNo, it isn't rounded up. It only says round up the Sunday avg to the next integer, not to the nearest 10th, 100th, ect.

ReplyDeletei got 77856

ReplyDeleteI finally submitted 78144 on the idea that friday is double the last friday. I'm not sure if I'm right, but I figured if TNT had meant 11x2 11x3 11x4 like some of you are thinking, they would have worded it differently- "twice that for the second friday" makes me think x2. If they meant to x3 for the next fri and x4 for the one after that, they probably would have mentioned it. Thats my theory anyways, good luck all, guess well find out next week!

ReplyDeleteI submitted mine asap since I want to win the trophy, but I honestly don't know which is right! Good luck!

ReplyDeletei got 90144

ReplyDelete3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,348,72,144,9,3,786,44,

2490,507,1014,13,3,5643,88,17193,3495,12990,17,3,

45072

I'm part of the camp that solved it assuming Fridays are 11, 22, 33, 44. When I first read it, I didn't even consider the 11, 22, 44 theory when reading it. Just my two cents.

ReplyDelete-E-

It's 76794. Microsoft Excel for the win!

ReplyDelete64428 Is what I got.

ReplyDeletesubmitted 76794

ReplyDeleteI submitted 76794.

ReplyDeleteOh, Please. Don't Test Me On Maths ! I HATE MATHS ! D:

ReplyDeleteI got 77856.

ReplyDeleteI had 79280

i got 34239

ReplyDeleteI'm usually goof at maths but wow O.O Okay, so I got 32932 which is completely different to your answers. I must have done something wrong XD

ReplyDeletegood*

ReplyDeletehmm,about the friday,is it saying that so 1st friday=11,2nd friday=22,3rd friday=33 or 44??thanks

ReplyDeleteI got 55166 :)

ReplyDeletevalues are:3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,348,71,142,9,3,689,33,2166,445,890,13,3,4239,44,12849,2640,5280,17,3,25072

ReplyDeletei'm not perfectly sure

-Angel :)

which gives you: 55166

ReplyDelete-Angel :)

Thats 78786

ReplyDeleteI got 78144

ReplyDeleteI got 88002

ReplyDeleteI make some mistake.

ReplyDeleteIt should be 75912

angel, you are really close. its 56460

ReplyDeleteanswer is 78144 if fri goes 11,22,44,88

ReplyDeleteor 76794 if fri goes 11,22,33,44

Dynamic spreadsheet showing answer https://rapidshare.com/files/4230165243/Lenny_406_answer.xlsx

ReplyDelete76794, that's what I got too, and I'm pretty sure it's right. The only other version could be with the different fridays, but that doesn't seem very logical.

ReplyDeletewhoo yay 76794:D got that too:D

ReplyDelete3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,348,72,144,9,3,786,33,2457,501,1002,13,3,5581,44,16875,3432,6864,17,3,38397.

last day is a Thursday so total jellies of the month=38397 times 2=76794

In the spreadsheet you can change the Friday values to what ever you think they should be and it will give you the answer corresponding to those values

ReplyDeleteAs there can be 2 answers depending on how many jellies you get on fridays, I think TNT is just going to see which one people prefer less, and that's the "right" answer. They have done that some times before, I remember some months ago when there was another trick question about numbers which had 2 answers and as most people noticed that it was a trick question, they answered technically right, but TNT said that the right answer was the really obvious one, because practically no one answered that.

ReplyDeleteYeah you're right the number is 76794.

ReplyDeletei got : 3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,160,44,88,9,3,514,33,1641,925,1850,13,3,5493 ... so its all 10986

ReplyDelete-------------------------------------------------

i had you up until 160. saturdays you get three times the sum of the previous two days 94+22=116*3=348

Is it 89898?

ReplyDeleteWho says its for THIS year Month of Relaxing ?

ReplyDeleteThe month can begin on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc. Try everything uh !

._. i got 82196...

ReplyDeleteI got 709,865,929 Jellies... I'm 100% positive I did everything properly too, and Math is my best subject... :P

30, (thurs, v=354,932,937 t=709,865,874)

FINAL ANSWER: 709,865,874

But I didn't divide the first sunday by 7, only 4 so instead, if you count the previous days, (where you receive only 1 jelly) the average would be 8.8, rounding up to 9. in that case the answer would be 709,865,868...

ReplyDeleteMonth of Relaxing only lasts through June 28 I think

ReplyDelete709,865,874

ReplyDelete^ Jelly Invasion!?

XD

ReplyDeleteThere are two possible correct answers:

ReplyDelete78144 if you believe Fridays are 11,22,44,88

76794 if you believe Fridays are 11,22,33,44

-E-

Man...you dont even did it right.

ReplyDelete12,848 + 19,338 does not equal 248,454,624 ! O.o

These answers are correct IF you consider it's for this year's June Month.

ReplyDeleteBut, is it mentionned in the question ?

No.

Why wouldn't it be for this month though?

ReplyDeleteSeems illogical to me, for it to be another another year.

Okay we're kind hovering over the 709mil mark.

ReplyDeleteEveryone is forgetting that for the first Sunday, you get the average of the previous 7 days

ReplyDeleteNot just the previous days in june, you are forgetting to add 3 jellies for the 3 days that overlap into May

This throws off all of your answers

Also, you actually aren't receiving those 3 jellies

ReplyDeleteI hope this makes sense

They should however, still factor into the average for the first Sunday in the same way you factor in the First thursday jelly as 1+4 = 5

post above meant first tuesday jelly as 1+4 = 5

ReplyDeletei got (by day)

ReplyDelete3,3,11,42,9,18,5,3,94,22,348,72,144,9,3,786,44,2490,507,1014,13,3,5643,88,17193,3495,6990,17,3,39072 for a total of 78144

i used 1+4=5 for the first tuesday and double each time for friday. i also used 3 1's for the days before the month to count for the first sunday, but didnt count the 1's in the total (of course). everything else i think is straight forward

You started off wrong

ReplyDeleteBecause you still have to count the 3 1's into the total for the first sunday

You aren't just dividing those 4 days by seven, you are still dividing the amount you got for the 7 days previously by 7

In the same way as how you are using the 1 jelly from the previous tuesday in May to get 5 Jelly for the first tuesday in June

Therefore, you're first week should look like this

3, 3, 11, 42, 13

all your numbers after will be wrong if you did not do this

Lolz

ReplyDelete0 because they said it didn't exist c:

ReplyDeletewhy do they hide it its obvious its there i go there all the time!

ReplyDeleteFor the person who said it should start 3, 3, 11, 42, 13, you're wrong.

ReplyDeleteIf what you say is true, then multiplying 13*7 would give 91, meaning there would have to be 91 jellies in the previous week.

However, by what both of you are saying, the previous week's total would be 1+1+1+3+3+11+42=62

Dividing that by 7 would give just under 9, which rounded up would be 9.

Make sense?

The answer is 74306.

ReplyDeleteIm confused; do we have a confirmed answer??

ReplyDeleteI checked my math several times, and a lot of people have come up with the same two answers as me (depending on which interpretation of friday you use):

ReplyDelete78144 if Fridays are 11,22,44,88

76794 if Fridays are 11,22,33,44

I'm pretty sure it's 76794 though, because when they say twice that, they mean twice that of the first friday, which is eleven. Not twice the previous friday.

The answer I got was quite unreasonable.....

ReplyDeleteSo I guessed.

M T W H F S U

ReplyDelete3 3 11 42 25

50 5 3 142 22 492 160

212 9 3 1.182 33 3.645 750

1.500 13 3 8.308 44 2.5056 5.097

10.194 17 3 57.027

... so all together 114.054 jellies right?

My total answer was 65632.

ReplyDeleteThe friday thingo is really confusing me, is it

1x11, 2x11, 3x11 or 11, 2x11, 2(2x11),2x[2(2x11)] etc.,

I think i may have missed the mark by far. =_="

i got 197,180...... it could be wrong though. I did the 11, 11x2,x3,x4.

ReplyDelete
