You guys can post whatever logic puzzles you create here, and you can specify certain aspects of it.

Personally I think "logic" is a lot more than just decoding binary numbers and such. This puzzle should get you thinking.

1. Try to figure out what's going on
2. If necessary, "decode". You yourself are going to be the translator.
3. You will come up with a word or phrase for each.
4. The numbers in the brackets tell you how much you need to count of the word or phrase (spaces count as well, don't forget them)
5. The letters you result with will be scrambled. You will have to rearrange them.

100ctaUSD [14]
Bedlam [2]
Dove %i Peace [1]
ab --> ba [8]
"I could care less" [3]
Aesthetics [8]

I have one that I made during history yesterday. Gotta find the page. I'll try yours.

Also try to show your work so I know where you're getting your laters.

Hate to break it to you, but none of those letters are part of the answer lol (which is why you should show how you're getting your letters)

lmao, I thought so. Seemed to easy to be true. I can't wrangle my brain around it,

1. No clue.
2. Anagram for Ambled or Blamed
3. No clue.
4. Commutative property
5. Used a synonym.
6. Counted letters (started losing my mind when I couldn't get the answers before)

I made one (two parts, but when the answers to both are put together, it makes a complete answer) in biology while the teacher was reading notes from the packet again Rolling Eyes

1. PALINILAP [8]
2. 123456787654321 [15]
3. ZXYWXVWUVT.....[48]
4. HIJKLMO [1]
5. (44) (33) (555) (555) (666) [3]

_ _ _ _ _

1. PDUPCFS [6]
2. (Group 1, 1) (Group 5, 15) (Group 7, 54) (LS, 68) [1]
3. p + q = 1; (p^2)+(2pq)+(q^2) = 1 [1]
4. WAKIE [1]
5. 1 [1]

_ _ _ _ _


Two word answer:
_ _ _ _ _   _ _ _ _ _

I see where you're going but none of that is what's actually in the puzzle lmao.

It also shows how cheap the puzzles can be - like when I unscrambled a word to spell out antidisestablishmentarianism and counted the 23rd letter but that didn't do anything.

Hmm, not too keen on solving anagrams, but I do enjoy me a good logic puzzle...

Here's few number sequences I've never been able to solve, from a contest that was referred to on the FFR forums maybe a couple of years ago. Maybe one of you can? Just fill in the missing steps by finding a rule and generalizing it. The numbers are used chiefly as symbols, and these problems don't involve any mathematics except maybe very basic arithmetic. I'll include a few simpler sequences I already know the answers to, to demonstrate.

0. 220, 336, 440, 5510, ?, ?
1. 12345, 66366, 121231212, 333333333, ?, ?
2. 12, 1314, 13271329, ?
------
3. 12345, 423, -12, ?
4. 77, 16.5, 1414, 33, 88888, ?, ?
5. 81290-520, -4489504, 04139-3-4-8, ?, ?

The question marks don't make sense >.>

The question marks are the missing steps to be filled.

The line is separating the problems I've solved (0-2) from the ones I haven't (3-5).

The hyphens in problems 3 and 5 are just parts of their corresponding sequence, that I can only imagine are to be interpreted as symbols (not negative signs).

Just to be clear: I posted the first three to show there's no complex arithmetic involved in solving them.
(edit: They should be easy to solve. [2] is a bit harder.)

Solving 0

0. 220, 336, 440, 5510, ?, ?

Three adjacent numerical expressions in each output. The first two are identical, and increment every step, starting at 2. The third expression is dependent on whether the previous expressions in the same output are even or odd. If even, the third expression is 0. If odd, it's the sum of the first two of expressions (or double either of them).

Therefore,
0. 220, 336, 440, 5510, 660, 7714

That's the easiest one, by far. I'm still hoping for some involvement here ._.
Have many more of these sequences if anyone's interested.

Eh... Solving 2

2. 12, 1314, 13271329, ?

Notice the number of digits are even, that they double each step, and that each output can be divided into two segments (each segment beginning with the absolutely identical segments like 1_1_ and 13__13__).

It's simple enough to formulate that if you divide each input into two segments and call them a and b respectively, that each output is (a a+b a 2b)... Save for one inconsistency that becomes evident on the third output: If an output is divided into segments that are equal in size to its input's segments, the last segment in that output is always close to, but not exactly, double the last segment in the previous step. I solved for this variation through induction by adding a variable "n" that starts as 0 and increments after each step.

So, if
n = 0
a = first half of any step
b = last half of any step

output {
a a+b a 2b+n
n = n+1
}

And we get
2. 12, 1314, 13271329, 1327265613272660

What comes next?
0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, __
a) 10
b) 11
c) 12
d) 13
Maybe I shouldn't read the garbage bin before making posts...
