For those of you that don't like math, I have also added a non-math related puzzle

Normal Rules apply: Do not leak, post answers, suggest hints, or directly link to the prize/giveaway.

This is the first giveaway being produced by Evil Puzzles -Я- Us. We will be randomly doing puzzles with giveaways from now on, but we can't promise they will be happening a lot. Enjoy the puzzle and have fun if you win. It's a short puzzle and shouldn't be too hard.

Group members may enter, as I did not make it with their help, and they will not get help from me that the rest of the community isn't getting also.

If you are stuck on a question, leave a comment or add me on steam and let me know which one. I'll try to help out the community if people are stuck on a particular one.

The game isn't anything big, and there is no contribution value required.

Giveaway ends at midnight on March 1st Tokyo time.

first task, find the giveaway

HINTS

questions 2 & 3 Go to 16 decimal places

For question 3, ... and ..., replace ... with your numbers.

after talking with a few people, we have come to the conclusion that some sites give different answers as it gets into the deeper decimal places. For number 2, the site I used made it a 6 at the end, not a 9. If you get it wrong, try changing the last digit to a 6.

for number 3, part one make it a 2 not a 6, and for part 2 make it 88 and not 97

We don't know why different sites are so different, but they are. This should solve any problems with it.

big thanks to g00u and ludijak for helping me figure out what was going wrong with it.

please bump if you solve it

Looking for numbers or roman numerals for Q1?

I put a bunch of different answers in there, it should be able to take it any way

math? nty

GamerPlava (1 year ago)

am I the only one who hates when people hide the link to the puzzle, if you wanna make it harder just make the damn puzzle harder.

The quiz is already very hard

It's barely hidden. I didn't make it harder that way, just slightly more time consuming.

It's easy to solve but I have no idea what you want from us to write for 2nd and 3rd answer.

read the post, it should be a numerical answer, but it goes way deep into the decimals. 16 places.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

you may want to google for something that will work to get you that far, solving 16 places will get tedious.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

I've tried everything that seemed even remotely possible, even writing only real part of solution, and I've came to conclusion that there must be something wrong with the answer, or my calculus isn't so good. Have anyone solved it by now, it's fairly easy, or at least it should be.

If I may suggest not approximating results, mathematicians don't really like that sort of thing, it always better to write exact result. (Physicist like approximations very much I've been told.)

Ludijak

(1 year ago)

Well, I'm working on a physics degree, so maybe that explains it lol. It's really rather simple though, the equation needs to be solved to 16 decimal places.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

I think I'll quit, not that I care much for giveaway, just feel need to solve math puzzles when I see them.

Ludijak

(1 year ago)

No, come back! It's solvable now!

q00u

(1 year ago)

It IS simple, which is why we suspect there is a problem with the answers you have.

Math is not a maybe thing. It's a definitely thing. I know the answer I came up with is correct, mathematically. It's not accepted by your quiz.

q00u

(1 year ago)

do me a favor and accept my invite on steam and send me a message with the answer you were getting. i wanna see what isn't coming out the same as what I had.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

Yessir! I was about to ask you to do the same thing. I'm actually really curious what happened here, haha.

q00u

(1 year ago)

numerical algorithms used by various sites aren't accurate to that many decimal places

How do we put 2 different numbers in the same answer?

the hint will give the format of it, but I might as well just put it here, its ... and ...

just replace ... with your numbers

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

OK, just wanted to be sure lol. Didn't want to have the right answer and think it was wrong due to incorrect format.

Yeah, I think something is wrong with the answers. I stopped when my answers to #2 were not accepted, even though I double and triple checked it.

I think some people are getting a different answer, and I know some aren't taking the decimal out as far as I did. I added a new quiz for people that don't want to do math or are having trouble with it.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

According to the quiz site, zero people are getting the answer you put. It's not that some people are getting a different answer, everybody is getting an answer different from yours. Nobody is getting your answer.

I don't want another quiz without math. I'm doing this one because it's math!

q00u

(1 year ago)

I know, i'm trying to figure out why my answer is not the same though, one person already sent me what they were getting and I'm not sure why they got a different answer.

ilovescootaloo

(1 year ago)

I agree. I went out 16 places and checked it several times. It still didn't accept my answers.

AurionMaverick

Check the edit, it's solvable now.

q00u

I did. Glad that got cleared up. :D

Bump for solved, and for great justice, and for MATH!

AurionMaverick (1 year ago)

Bump for solved as well.

Solved. Bump!

If the first task is to find the giveaway, then why can I only find a quiz? D:

datfaceguy2k13 (1 year ago)

There are only 5 solvers of the puzzle, yet the giveaway has 17 entries?

I had another puzzle earlier but someone gave away and answer to it so I changed my puzzle.
