@jjbuttcrack,
Well, I've never seen a combination lock with consecutive identical digits. I would agree that there is nothing requiring the digits to be all different, however.

I agree that the sensible way to do this would be to put in three digits, try it, then put in the fourth digit. For at least one of the 75-76 possible combinations of four digits that start with the same three, at least.

I agree with your answer if you allow identical consecutive digits and try each 3 and 4 digit combination separately.

Well, based on the answer they awarded the prize to, they wanted the time for trying each 3 and 4-digit combination separately and they allowed consecutive equal digits.

Professor Clodbottle, inventor and master of all things Habitarium, was running an experiment to see just how many P3s he could fit into his latest model. (The Cogbottle Ninetyâ„˘, if you're curious. Not yet ready for release, but he's making progress!)

The professor, looking dapper.

On the first day, the professor started with a Pinchit, a Larnikin, and a Mootix. The next day, there were three Pinchits, two Larnikins, and still one very lonely Mootix. He was off to a good start, though, or so he thought.

The following day, the professor noticed he'd only gained one Mootix. Not one to be dismayed, he set some nesters to work and the fourth day saw an increase of four Pinchits! Four!

Another lull came the next day, when only one Larnikin had been added, but things got better the day after that when he found three more Mootixes, another Larnikin, and one more Pinchit.

How many Petpetpets did the professor have in his new Habitarium on the fifteenth day?

Well, obviously we are supposed to find some kind of pattern.

Should we take into account that P3s die after 7 days?

Since nesters only reproduce the same kind of P3, I'm thinking that looking at the sequence of each type separately would be the place to start.

@lennyfan,
It was pi day on Wednesday. 3.141592653589793238462643383279502.

that's what I have memorized. anyways, Pi definitely factors into this. And I submitted my answer taking into account that P3's die in a week. And I find it weird that they ask for 15 days, which is like a day after two weeks. but I dunno. May just be me.

Face plant - I didn't even think about it being Pi day and I know how much the LC loves Pi.

So, the question is whether to submit with P3s dying after 7 days or without. And if with, whether the count is before or after the 2 that die on the 15th day. Oh, I guess I'll assume they all are born and die at the same time each day, so I'll subtract those two off. Two digits, sum of 7?

So they didn't want us to take into account the Petpetpets dying. The answer they gave was 71.

Say I took the estimated price of all Destruct-O-Match-related books added together...

Multiplied by rarity of every Codestone and added them together...

Then divided that by the number of different Motes in Neopia...

And finally multiplied by the number of Lupe villains in the Gallery of Heroes...

What would I get? Round to the nearest whole number.

My first answer was 278576 = ((1170+1012+1453+1211) * (10*40 + 6*101)) /35 * 2, but I don't think that is right.

"And finally multiplied by the number of Lupe villains in the Gallery of Heroes..."

And that after I'd done all the math

The Gadgadsbogen celebration is known throughout Mystery Island and beyond. Neopets from around globe gather to buy the last of the older fruits and to marvel at the new ones.

The island's regular inhabitants don't mind the touists; visitors to the island usually bring plenty of Neopoints. One such tourist, Salinder, had ben saving for this day for an entire year and couldn't wait to see what this year's Gadgadsbogen had to offer.

His first stop was at a small shop near the harbour. It was full to the brim with Slugroots and Uchini, but nothing really caught the buzz's eye.

Salider's second stop was at the Tropical Food shop. They had a larger variety, including Grunions and Banngos. They even had Honeylumes! But still, he couldn't find that one fruit that looked too delicious to resist.

Finally, after many more stops and a long day of celebrating, he came upon a very smal stand tucked away behind the Rock Pool. When he approached, his face lit up! This was it. This was the fruit he'd been serching for all along.

What fruit did Salinder find?

Okay, Slugroots and Grunions are retired fruit. From what I can see Uchini, Banngos and Honeylumes don't even exist. I was expecting some kind of pattern with Neopian fruits, possibly ones that were added or retired this Gadgadsbogen, but that doesn't seem very likely now.
