KatKwiz #52 - Another number game?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 


Did everybody catch Hydroaxe's comment to close yesterday? Nobody was the winner. Nonetheless I paid 750 points to the person that got 33K (actually 32.5K) right. If you look down below in Additional Options you can click on Manage Attachments which will give you the 32.5K information. Well, you cannot say you or I did not learn something yesterday. I bring up the fact that I went ahead and paid the 750 points because of today's question. I do not expect anybody to spend the day finding the exact answer (although it can be done), but today's points will be awarded to the closest answer. So this will run the full 12 hours unless somebody does get it right on the nose. In which case they will get some kind of merit badge.

Starting with KatKwiz#4, how many points has KatKwiz given away through KatKwiz #51?

Take an educated guess. Or go for the merit badge.

We put pennies in because it wasn't always whole points that were donated. Sometimes it was 211.66 points or 236.29 points or stuff like that. So when you look through it you find that with those days added together it adds up so there is an extra penny.

my guess is 22,601.1

I tried to add it all up and I came up with 18,657.

The first four contests did not have a KatKwiz# attached to them. The fourth KatKwiz was however only worth 100 points (which was paid to emrldsky on April 2. Just thought I would add that. Meanwhile, I am going back to total these number up again because we have one answer in particular that is so close that I cannot believe it. Anyway, I am using my history file of donations so I will make sure of my answer.

BTW, I have made a word file out of my history file and stripped out all information except my donations to winners. I will post this when the winner is announced for anybody that wants to check my math and also it may be interesting to see who the top winners are, a complete record.

Any reason you don't think someone could get the answer so close? Numbers don't lie, math is math.

You are the KatKwiz Whiz of the Day, and I do mean Whiz. When I saw your answer I tallied up the points again. And then again. I keep coming up with 19193, a difference in 75 points. I see nothing to account for this 75 descrepancy , but nontheless you are still easily the winner.

I have taken my history file and deleted everything in it except for KatKwiz winners, not for just in case you wanted to check my math, but thought it might be interesting to our players. You will find it posted below.

No more math for a while. But here is a thought for you. If I do nothing but post one contest a day, and I answer that contest as to who wins, and do no other posts, and maintain the current KatKwiz bank balance I will pay out over 150,000 points in the coming year. And that is why I keep a balance, so that interest alone will guarantee never running out of points to give away. However, I do have a feeling I may be doing other posts just now and every now again.

Don't forget, you are very welcome to submit your own questions and let me worry about paying the points! That is my joy, giving points away, not coming up with questions. So I do the best I can with the questions, and there is an old saying that if you really want to learn something, teach it. That is so true. I teach myself something everyday that I have to come up with a question but I just thought some of you might like to submit your own questions. PM me and include answers.

And here your are: (KatKwiz #49 did not have a winner.)
