3 R1; 57 is divisible by 3 plus 1 is 58 therefore 58/3 is 3 R1

4 R2; 56 is divisible by 4 plus 2 is 58 therefore 58/4 is 4 R2

5 R3; 55 is divisible by 5 plus 3 is 58 therefore 58/5 is 5 R3

6 R4; 54 is divisible by 6 plus 4 is 58 therefore 58/6 is 6 R4

________________________________________________

41/3 = 13 R2

40/4 = 10 R0

39/5 = 7 R4

38/6 = 6 R2

42 can&#39;t be the number

I was kidding Sphinx&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; read Hitch hikers Guide to the Galaxy&#33; sheesh, I am regretting ever writing in this thread&#33; I am not egotistical (as i mentioned earlier to Kashi&#39;s response) and I do NOT consider it an advantage to have a higher IQ, cause it measures so very little (as i have mentioned before.

and yes, Faulkner my students do that and more...i know what that is&#33; detention for you&#33;

nah, you actually make a point. (Detention annulled - and don&#39;t call me Mr. Igoe - makes me sound as pompous as i have been made out to be in this thread&#33

I read an article recently about people becoming faster at recognising patterns such as the one you wrote Faulkner. I cannot remember where, but there was a study on it.

Sasha sweetheart, I think if you sum up all the replies in this post, you&#39;ll realize that no matter what your IQ, we&#39;re all idiots at heart&#33; :P

9. Faulkner Guest
...oh, and the most idiotic of them all are the ones who take themselves oh-so seriously&#33;&#33;&#33;

What a stimulating forum&#33; Nice to find people talking about other than sport, weather, TV and celebs....

And Sasha, I&#39;d agree, use it or lose it&#33; IQ is a one-dimensinal analysis of your &#39;intelligence&#39;, largely biased towards symbol handling. But we also have social, emotional, visual, etc intelligence.

The number doesn&#39;t matter, ultimately, so much as finding what you are good at, what YOU enjoying doing, because it&#39;s only by being true to yourself that you have any hope of happiness and satisfaction in life. Your high IQ should make that easier, but honesty, integrity, and compassion (especially with yourself) will help a darn sight more.

Don&#39;t lose heart if it all seems to be going wrong, they don&#39;t say &#39;life begins at forty for nothing&#39;. It took me that long to sort out who and what I am, and I&#39;m a Mensa-refusnik. (Sorry, the ego thing seems compulsory here)

In all that time, I&#39;ve boiled down life to two rules:

1) Never run for the bus
2) Never take a job you wouldn&#39;t do for fun alone

and 2 is really a special case of 1...

Good luck

How about some more from MikeJ ....

Come on MikeJ - challenge us&#33; B)

oddly "normal"
I like the choice of words there&#33; :P

There is something quite profound there, if you look carefully...

Loved the cartoon MikeJ...

And the Little Green Men ...

The bounce of the "ball" would be unpredictable though .

Now that cartoon makes a lot of sense MikeJ&#33;&#33;&#33;

The bounce of the ball will be unpredictable to us but predictable for the little green fellas. Just an example of how one&#39;s environment has a major impact on the individual.

Anyone like to propose the rules of Martian footie given what we know about the game so far? I guess the three lobes would make for some interesting ballistics ... :P
