    MATHS IN THE RED PART TWENTY-FIVE

    Lister wants to buy 100 Stirmasters, using 100 dollarpounds to do so. He must buy no more or less than 100 Stirmasters, and he must spend exactly 100 dollarpounds.

    The standard Stirmaster costs 10 pennycents. The Stirmaster Deluxe costs $£3. The Turbo Stirmaster 3000 costs $£6. How many of each should he buy?

    MATHS IN THE RED PART TWENTY-EIGHT

    An insane scientist creates seven hologrammatic copies of Rimmer programmed to kill the other Dwarfers. All of the evil copies are hard light and operate using light bees identical to the real Rimmer’s. However, the real Rimmer’s light is slightly heavier than the copies, which is the only way to tell them apart.

    Kryten creates a balancing scale which is so sensitive it allows them to measure the density of light of the holograms, and then sets off an anti-hologram pulse which knocks all the Rimmers unconscious.

    What is the smallest number of weighings required for the Dwarfers to tell which is the real Rimmer?

    MATHS IN THE RED PART TWENTY-NINE

    On a jungle planet, the Dwarfers (except for Rimmer, who is back on Starbug) are captured by a group of GELFs who give them one chance to escape with their lives. Lister, Kryten and Cat are each bound to a stake. Kryten is at the front and can’t see either of the others, Cat is in the middle so he can see Kryten, and Lister is at the back and can see both Cat and Kryten.

    The GELFs produce five hats, three of which are black and two of which are white. The Dwarfers are all blindfolded, and each has a hat put on their head. The remaining two hats are hidden away. The blindfolds are removed, and they are told that if just one of them can guess what colour hat they’re wearing, they will all be set free. Time passes, and eventually Kryten correctly states what colour his hat is. How did he know?

Unfortunately, due to a sequence of events too contrived to document here, they inadvertently prevent the birth of Barack Obama. Whoopsy!

    The insane scientist from Maths in the Red Part Twenty-Eight comes back. This time he’s created eleven identical copies of Rimmer. The real Rimmer’s light is either slightly heavier or slightly lighter than the copies, but the Dwarfers aren’t sure which. Using the measuring scale, what is the minimum number of weighings required to work out which is the real Rimmer?

    ANSWERS IN THE RED PART TWO

    14) From most to least important: Lister > Kryten > Snacky > Skutters > Cat > Dispenser 23 > Rimmer > Taiwan Tony

    15) The time is 5.30, as shown on Kochanski’s clock. The clocks were set at 8.00, as shown on Hollister’s clock. 12.45 is Petersen’s, 3.25 is Rimmer’s, 10.30 is Selby’s, and 7.05 is Chen’s.

    16) Lister can get through three curries, five ice-creams and fourteen drinks

    17) One. Suppose one of Hollister’s grandparents-in-law had a daughter and two sons. If the first son got married and had a daughter whom Hollister later married, and Hollister himself were the son of the original daughter, and Hollister had a brother and a sister and the sister married the son of the second son of Hollister’s grandparent-in-law, whilst the brother married the daughter of the second son, then a single invitation would cover everyone.

    18) 24 miles — every mile Lister covered took half an hour

    19) Cat

    20) 43

    21) If 7x + 18y = 233, then the small boxes had five tubes each and the large boxes had eleven tubes each

    22) Five cows, one pig and one sheep

    23) He should take one of the notes and immediately swallow it. The GELFs will then look at the remaining piece of paper, see it says ‘DEATH’, and can only conclude that the paper Lister took said ‘LIFE’.

    24) The only lockers that remain open will be perfect squares, up to 31 squared (since 32 squared is greater than 1,000). So there will be 31 lockers open.

    25) One Stirmaster 3000, 29 Deluxes, and 70 standard Stirmasters

    26) 9 sheep and 18 chickens

    27) 62.5 curries

    28) Two. For the first measurement, they should weigh three of the Rimmers against three others, leaving the remaining two to one side. If the scale is even, then one of the two Rimmers not on the scale must be the real one, so they only need to weigh them to find out. If the scales are uneven, they should take away the three on the heavier end, weigh one of them against another, and leave the third to one side. If the scales are uneven, they’ve found the real Rimmer; if they are balanced, the real Rimmer is the one not on the scale.

    29) Cat can see both of the other two, so if both of them were wearing white hats, he would know his hat is black. Since he says nothing, Kryten and Lister both deduce that at least one of them must be wearing a black hat. If Kryten was wearing a white hat, Lister would therefore know that his own hat is black, but since Lister says nothing Kryten realises he must be wearing a black hat himself.

    30) They need three weighings. First, weigh four Rimmers against four others.

    If both sides of the scales are equal, all eight Rimmers can be eliminated. Put three of the four remaining Rimmers onto one side, and three of the eliminated ones on the other. If both sides are still equal, the last remaining Rimmer is the real one. If the side with the Rimmers still under consideration moves up or down, weigh one of those three Rimmers against one of the others, and the third Rimmer is set aside. If both sides are equal, the third Rimmer is the real one. If the scales move, the real Rimmer is the one that moves in the same direction that the three Rimmers under consideration moved in the previous weighing.

    If, when they first weigh four of the Rimmers against four of the other Rimmers, the scales are not equal, take one Rimmer from each side and switch them. One one side only, remove the other three and set them aside for later. Replace them with three Rimmers from the four left on the table (now known not to be the real one).

    If the two sides are now equal, the real Rimmer is among the three set aside. Weigh one against another, and set the third aside. If the sides are equal, the real Rimmer is the third one. If the scales move, the real Rimmer is the one that moved in the same direction as it did in the first weighing.

    If the two sides move in different directions as in the first weighing, the real Rimmer is one of the two that switched places. Weigh one of the two against any of the other ten. If both sides are equal, the real Rimmer is the one left out. If the scales move, the Rimmer on the scales that’s under consideration is the real one.

    If the two sides move in the same direction as in the first weighing, the real Rimmer is one of the three that hadn’t moved from its side. Weigh one of the three against another, and set the third aside. If the sides are equal, the real Rimmer is the third one. If the scales move, the real Rimmer is the one that moved in the same direction as it did in the previous weighings.

    PLOTHOLES OF THE MATHOCALYPSE

    29) Cat can see both of the other two, so if both of them were wearing white hats, he would know his hat is black. Since he says nothing, Kryten and Lister both deduce that at least one of them must be wearing a black hat. If Kryten was wearing a white hat, Lister would therefore know that his own hat is black, but since Lister says nothing Kryten realises he must be wearing a black hat himself.

    Of course, this solution relies on both Cat and Lister being smart enough to work this stuff out…
