more old ones — March 2013

For background, see equationizing.

When in the course of human events, one drops the ball for a while, there is the chance to pick it up. Hence, equations for March of 2013, not including 3/1/13 which is both obvious and covered elsewhere.

3/2/13:  (√(3^2)) ^1 = 3

3/3/13: √(3*3/1) = 3

3/4/13: √(3^√4)/1 = 3

3/5/13: √(3√(5-1)) = 3 (I’d rather have done something involving the simpler and more elegant 3 + 3 – 1 = 5 but I’m more into preserving the order of the digits these days.

3/6/13: 3 = 6*1-3

3/7/13: 7 – 1 -3 =3; lame, breaks the order

3/8/13: ³√8 + 1 = 3; that thing at the beginning is the cube root of 8

3/9/13: √(3*√9)*1 = 3

3/10/13: 3 + 10 = 13

3/11/13: 3*1*1*1 = 3

3/12/13: 3+1-2+1 = 3

3/13/13: just enjoy the pattern

3/14/13: 3+1-√2+1 = 3, remember this one from two days ago? als0, if you live until 2059, remember this day

3/15/13: √(3*(1+√(5-1))) = 3; also, speaking of remembering, how about those Ides of March?

3/16/13: 3-1 = 6-1-3; also 3 = 16-13

3/17/13: 3 = 1+√(7-(1*3))

3/18/13: 3+1 = 8-1-3

3/19/13: 3*1 = 9/1/3

3/20/13: 3-2-0 = 1*3

3/21/13: 3 = 2+1 = 1*3

3/22/13: 3-2 = (2+1)/3

3/23/13: 3*2 = 3*1+3

3/24/13: 3*2 = 4+1-3

3/25/13: 3^2 = 5+1+3

3/26/13: √(√(3^2)+6)*1 = 3

3/27/13: 3^2 – 7 + 1 = 3

3/28/13: 3*2 = 8+1-3

3/29/13: √(3^2) = √9 = 1*3

3/30/13: 3 = 3 = (0+1)*3

3/31/13: √(3*3*1*1) = 3

Voila!

equationizing partial catch-up

No editorializing, folks, just the facts.

6/1/12 — √(6-1-1) = 2

6/2/12 — 6 = (2 + 1) * 2

6/3/12 — 6 = 3 + 1 + 2

6/4/12 — 6 * √4 = 12

6/5/12 —6 – 5 + 1 = 2

6/6/12 — Left as an exercise for the reader.

6/7/12 — 7 + 1 = 6 + 2 [Points off for breaking the order]

6/8/12 — 6 / √(8 + 1) = 2

6/9/12 — Nice sequence.

6/10/12 — √(6 – 1 – 0 – 1) = 2

6/11/12 — 6 = (1 + 1 + 1) * 2

6/12/12 — 6 = 1 + 2 + 1 + 2

6/13/12 — 6 = 1 * 3 * 1 * 2

6/14/12 — 6 + 1 – 4 – 1 = 2

6/15/12 — 6 + 1 – 5 = 1 * 2

6/16/12 — 6 + 1 – 6 + 1 = 2

6/17/12 — 6 – 1 + 7 = 12

6/18/12 — 6 – √(1 + 8) = 1 + 2

6/19/12 — 6 + 1 = 9 – (1 * 2) [Cheesy multiplying by 1, though]

6/20/12 — 6 = (2  + 0) * (1 + 2)

6/21/12 — 6 = 2 + 1 + 1 + 2

6/22/12 — 6 / 2 – 2 + 1 = 2

6/23/12 — 6 + 2 * 3 = 12

6/24/12 — No equation needed, just interesting to think about six being multiplied by the powers of 2 out of sequence…

6/25/12 — 6 – √25  + 1 = 2

6/26/12 — 6 * 2 = 6 * 1 * 2

6/27/12 — 6 + 2 – 7 + 1 = 2

6/28/12 — (6 + 2) / 8 + 1 = 2

6/29/12 — 6 * 2 – 9 – 1 = 2

6/30/12 — 6 = 3 + 0 + 1 + 2

July en route soon…

A few backlogged equations

Aside from delicious days like 11/11/11, 1/2/12, or 2/1/12, we’ve gotten through most of the factors of 12 days for this year, which are:

1/12/12
2/6/12
3/4/12
4/3/12

and the upcoming

6/2/12
12/1/12

then there’s the radical (je suis le troublemakeur) approach to 5/12/12:

(5 + 1) * 2 = 12

which keeps everything in order, though treats some numbers as isolatable (yes, I know, not a real word) digits and others as actual numbers.

And before I go to sleep, I might as well be thorough and do today:

5/19/12

First, there’s the obvious

9 = 5 + 1 + 1 + 2

but there’s also

(5 – 1 – 1) ^ 2 = 9

and also

5 * 2 * 1 = 9 + 1

and, just to make up for months of missing days:

(5 – 2)! / (1+1) = √9

9/25/11 — today’s equation

This one is at least a little fun:

9/25/11

yields

9, 2, 5, 1, 1

in sequence, which yields

9 = 2 * 5 – 1 * 1

And I feel privileged to use subtraction…

9/24/11 — today’s equation

Do I really need to lay this out?

9/24/11

in sequence, no less:

9 = 2 * 4 + 1 * 1

Done!

For backgroumd, see the Equationizing page.

9/23/11 — today’s equation

After yesterday’s equation, this one seems almost stupid, but here it is:

9/23/11

in sequence becomes

9, 2, 3, 1, 1

which yields

9 = 2 ^ 3 + 1 * 1

which almost elicits a “Duh!”

 

but then I remember what a geek I am and it’s smooth sailing.

For backgroumd, see the Equationizing page.

9/22/11 — today’s equation

Well, I’m tempted to break it into digits and do it out of sequence with:

9 = (2 + 1) * (2 + 1)

which has a certain elegance. At the same time, the sequence tempts and yields something nice:

9 = 2 ^ (2 + 1) + 1

I’m just all geeked up right now with that one!
