1. To find my conclusions I had to think about each part of the problem. When you know that one thing means you go on to the next part. When you figure out what that means you have to see how the two statements are related. If they are related then you can deduce a conclusion that makes sense.

2. Here are my conclusions for the 6 problems on page 7.
1. a. No medicine is nice
b. Senna is a medicine
Here I deduced that Senna is not a nice medicine. I think this because the first statement says that “no medicine is nice.” That tells me that all medicines are not nice. The second statement says “Senna is a medicine”. That statement is straight forward. When you put them together you can decide that Senna is a medicine and medicines are not nice. So Senna is not nice.

2. a. All shillings are round
b. These coins are round
Here I decided that no now conclusions can be drawn. The first statement says “All shillings are round.” That statement is clear. The second statement says “These coins are round.” This tells you the coin they have are round. When you put these statements together you can see some flaws. They say these coins but you don’t know if any of these coins are shillings. They can be other coins that are round. So you cannot deduce anything.

These coins are
3.a. Some pigs are wild
b. All pigs are fat
Here I decided that there are no conclusions that can be made. The first statement tells you that some pigs are wild and the second tells you that all pigs are fat. But when you put these statements together you get wild pigs are fat but you already know that because the second statement says that all pigs are fat. Thus you cannot deduce anything.

4. a. Prejudiced persons are untrustworthy
b. Some unprejudiced persons are disliked
Here there are no conclusions that can be made. These statements are just statements are just statements and you cannot deduce anything from them....

...“A Sticky Gum Problem” POW 4
Problem statement:
The next scenario is very similar. In this one, Ms. Hernandez passed a different gumball machine the next day with three different colors Once again her twins each want a gumball of the same color, and each gumball is still one cent. What is the most amount of money that Ms. Hernandez would have to spend in order to get each of her daughters the same color gumball?
In the last scenario, Mr. Hodges and his triplets pass...

...Mega POW
A very wealthy king has 8 bags of gold, which he trusts to some of his caretakers. All the bags have equal weight and contain the same amount of gold, all the gold in the kingdom. Although, the king heard a story that a woman received a gold coin. The king knew it had to be his gold so he wanted to find the lightest bag in the 3 weighing, but the mathematician thought it could be done in less, so I need to find out the least amount of weighing it takes to find the...

...theoretical model. My real goal is to find the strategy with the highest probability of success or the one most likely to help me win.
Strategy # 1
a. Always choose the same thing the card says. So if it is an O choose O, if it is an X choose X.
b. 30 trials

...POW Problem Statement
A. A farmer is going to sell her eggs at the market when along the way she hits a pot hole causing all of her eggs to spill and break. She meets an insurance agent to talk about the incident, and during the conversation he asks, how many eggs did you have? The farmer did not know any exact number, but proceeded to explain to the insurance agent that when she was packing the eggs, she remembered that when she put the eggs in groups of 2-6 she had even...

...Problem Statement
There are twelve items numbered 1 through 12. All of the values or "weights" are the same except one item whose value is either greater than or less that the other 11 by an unknown amount.
One can compare the sum of the values of a number of items in a set with the sum of the values of items in a disjoint set to see which one is greater. This comparison is also called "weighing."
Find the least...

...Problem Statement:
Some families didn’t want to travel overland to California so they took ships around Cape Horn at the tip of South America. Say a ship leaves San Francisco for New York the first of every month at noon. At the same time a ship leaves New York for san Francisco. Every ship arrives exactly 6 months after it leaves.
If you were going to San Francisco from New York How many ships from San Francisco would you meet?
I assumed that entering and exiting the harbor does not...

...IMPPOW1: The Broken Eggs
Problem Statement:
A farmer’s cart hits a pothole, causing all her eggs to fall out and break. Luckily, she is unhurt. To cover the cost of the eggs, her insurance agent needs to know how many she had. She can’t remember the number, but can remember some problems she had when packing the eggs. When she put the eggs in groups of two to six eggs, there was always one left over. However, in groups of seven, there were none...

...information, we were also able to solve patterns using them and find missing terms in a sequence with them. In the example “In and Out” table below:
“To find the out value, multiply the in value by itself and then subtracts three.”
In Out
0 -3
1 -2
2 1
“In and Out” tables taught us to look at problems differently and to find multiple ways as to how to address a problem.
When we solved the “In and Out” tables, we came up with functions to express a rule...
