shady puzzle 277
Hi friends, thanks to popular demand (one comment from Blister) I have made a second puzzle thread. It is a word game. The first one was here if you need to kickstart your noggin. https://epicmafia.com/topic/91137
You must guess a word. Each word you guess I will return to you a number. Whoever guesses the methodology behind assigning numbers to words first wins and gets a sticker. Good luck.
If Ravennn posted in this thread, her number should be 298.
What sticker would you like, champ?
I play for the game bby.
I used math.
Answer: Comp round participation somehow
Step 2. determine the relationship between the person and their participation.
Step 2a. Is there a relationship between the scores people have and the number received.
Yes, it's a general positive relationship, however independent variable isn't related to scoring (This part is the math) but the dependent variable is.
Step 3. What are the possible factors that the independent variable could be.
Discovering the positive relationship between scores and numbers let me know I was in the right general area, after that I just had to balance the equation in order to get the right answer.
For example, while doing scoring, I kept getting x.89 and numbers close to but not equal to whole numbers, letting me know the solution required some type of rounding, which lead me to division.
This is generally what's expected of you.
