Originally posted by Duchess64 After taking a break last week, I am too busy with work now to have much time
to write here. So I shall just present a recreational mathematical problem
that the readers might enjoy attempting to solve. This problem requires little
mathematical knowledge, just a bit of mathematical insight. I don't know of a
published source for this problem. When ...[text shortened]... any professional mathematicians here allow amateurs
the opportunity to solve this problem.

Okay, as a total amateur who only got as far as calculus in college, I'll give it a try. With a fresh mind tomorrow.

No knowledge of calculus is required to solve these mathematical problems.
These problems are intended to be recreational, comparatively non-technical
(which is nice given the absence of mathematical symbols on my keyboard).
I already have posted the solutions, yet good luck to you in your efforts.
