The Three Indistinguishable Dice Puzzle

11 months ago0 views



Can you find a way to squeeze two dice out of three?\r
Problem suggested to me by Lucas Garron. Thanks to extra work done by Josh Laison, Jan Van Lent and Tarim (which convinced me it would work as a puzzle).\r
- Actually, more of a clarification. In the first bit I was using a remainder of 0 as 6, according to the convention that n = 0, mod n. But I forgot to mention it explicitly. Sorry! First noticed by DeadLink.\r
