The 1998 Problem

Submitted by on October 2, 2009 Projects


OK, a little different from our normal posts but I think you’ll enjoy. From what I understand this problem arose in the year 1998 and was posed as a mathematical problem for a student’s homework. This is how it works, by taking 1998 and only adding SYMBOLS to the numbers (as shown above) you must make every number from 1 to 100. The image above should allow you to understand what things you are allowed to do, but feel free to sound off in the comments if you’re confused. If you make it I expect feedback as I’m stumped on some.

(Apparently 0.9 repeating is defined as 1, or so I’m told)

r4rrA little bit of blatant self-promotion here, but I need a roommate pretty badly.  “How badly?” you ask?  Let’s just say if I don’t find someone by May, I’m dead meat.  We’re a pretty laid back group of individuals, but there’s one aspect we won’t compromise on: absolutely no zombies.



I don’t care if you’re only 1/16th zombie on your mother’s side, you won’t be stepping foot inside my safehouse.

If you’re sure that you’re not undead, and you’re interested in a room in the London, Ontario area, check out this listing.

EDIT: Hi Kotaku!  Thanks to Luke for the gracious writeup.  I’ve had a few people email me, asking if I was serious.  This is a real advertisement for a real room.  No, we’re not all gamers, but everyone has a good sense of humour and can appreciate the joke.  I’m putting the sign up this morning.   I wonder how long it will be before somebody steals it?
