How do you think it would have been accomplished any other way? Magic tokens???

 Posted: Thu Apr 11, 2002 7:03 pm    Post subject: 9 The problem with "flipping all 129" is that the puzzle states that there are HUNDREDS of tokens. The solution is exactly what Mole posted 03-21-2002 04:49 AM - Take a group of 129 tokens out. Flip them. The following shows all examples (the number of green left, X, is irrelevant): TAKE OUT - 129 red 0 green LEAVE 0 red X green; FLIPPING gives you 0 red on each side. TAKE OUT - 128 red 1 green LEAVE 1 red X green; FLIPPING gives you 1 red on each side. TAKE OUT - 127 red 2 green LEAVE 2 red X green; FLIPPING gives you 2 red on each side. ... TAKE OUT - 2 red 127 green LEAVE 127 red X green FLIPPING gives you 127 red on each side. TAKE OUT - 1 red 128 green LEAVE 128 red X green FLIPPING gives you 128 red on each side. TAKE OUT - 0 red 129 green LEAVE 129 red X green FLIPPING gives you 129 red on each side. That make it clearer? Werebear
