    Binary Brains?

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Noirenex on 10-Oct-06 08:30. Added clue)</P>The devil gave me 3 good points.
    00001100 + 00001100
    00100000 + 00001110
    10000000 - 00111000
    00001011 * 00000100
    What am i?

    OK so assuming you are stuck, the number 4 is significant, you will need to use it in some way to solve the problem.

    Hi Danny,

    Your puzzle has been up for three days now, and although you have edited it several times and added a clue, nobody has reacted. I for one still don't have the slightest idea what to do, even with your clue. Perhaps it's time to provide a more clear hint. You can use <!t>[hide]<!/t> and <!t>[/hide]<!/t> tags to hide text like <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">this</span hide> if you don't want to spoil it for those who'd rather work it out without help.

    The devil gave me 3 good points.

    Off hand I'd have to say a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">three-tined pitch fork that everyone probably gets when they head to the devil's home place.</span hide> <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Ok well skit is close so you can have a small slice of a choccy bar, the way it works is
    1. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Work out the binary gives you the numbers 24, 60, 72, 44</span hide>
    2. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The odd one out was the 4th clue, as you were given three clues, as well as the answer being the 4th and the number 44, therefore weknow 4 is significant, so take those numbers and share them by 4.</span hide>
    3. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Look at the alphabet against a numbered list</span hide>
    4. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">You get fork, a devil has a 3 pronged pitch-fork.</span hide>

    Forgive me if that was too much of an enigma, i shall perservere to make it easier next time.

    Hi Danny!

    .......is close so you can have a small slice of a choccy bar

    WOW and <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> I will gladly accept a small slice!

    <img src=/S/whisper.gif border=0 alt=whisper width=29 height=17>.....which is more than sufficient since I am determined to lose a bit of weight this year! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
