Anybody want to start another academic quizzes/challenges here?

Anybody who joins here to work on the work problems that I will give out, may have to respond frequently or periodically, because each of the work problems I will give-out will have due date on each ones.
But you can set me some other rules on some of how you want the work problems to go-then type that here.
But it will start with basic subjects & may start easy first.
Then you'll get points for each ones you get right, & will tell you what happens if get any wrong or overdue of any work problems.

    Don’t feel bad.  I make hard challenge questions.  Our friend Danny totally melted down over my math challenges.  I even edited the last question to make it easier for him by taking out the geometrized units of mass and the gravitational constant.

    If Martina figures out the third and fourth questions on my math challenge, I’ll do your worksheet.  She got the first one, the second one and the fifth one right.  I’ll also do all of your worksheets for her that she didn’t do.Then it’ll be even and the only thing you have left to do is grade the advanced math worksheets that Jaimie gave me four years ago.

    Okay that may be real good-for just this whole round, (don't know where you got the other math from).
    And for that one, I think I might do it with one of or some of other answerMug member's advices(some help), or from a remote answer site member(s)-to correct your advanced math worksheets with-
    how about this-hope this accepted from you(?)

    Livvie-See the due dates from each of those other (maths) 'shown'-on other thread too-will no longer given-out credits for doing that one for now.
    May have to give you new (math) pages to do, & rather I do your math page & you do mine, then in the start of new math thread, if you do-then you may have to keep looking in the math thread each day-do & finish each of every (math) page that comes-up to do.
    I usually give-out many easy ones mostly.
    As I don't know how would I keep-up doing your hard math, if you will only do as many math pages as I will do yours-As if another new worksheet thread that I will about to start-

    Challenge completed after 3½ hours of internet searches.



    Which unit of length is approximately ¹⁄₇₇₇₆₀₀₀₀ of Earth’s polar circumference?
    Answer: cubit

    Which building in Kentucky was designed and constructed using the unit for the above answer?
    Answer: Ark Encounter, Williamsburg, Kentucky

    This is how I solved it:

    ¹⁄₇₇₇₆₀₀₀₀ of Earth’s polar circumference is 0,5145 metres. I searched 0,5145 m. I searched 51,45 cm. I searched 514,5 mm.  I rounded it to 0,515 metres, 0,51 metres, and 0,5 metres. I searched again again using centimetres and millimetres. There were no search results. I gave up. The idea that worked was to go to Reddit.


    I entered building into the search bar. I scrolled down until I found a thread about a building that might be it. I found a possible clue. See the thread titled Attendance collapses at Creationist Ark museum after Kentucky taxpayers spent millions building theme park. The story in the Bible lists the dimensions of the ark in cubits. The Wikipedia article says a cubit is between 44,4 cm and 52,92 cm so 51,45 cm is in range.


    I went back to Wikipedia and searched for Creationist Ark Kentucky. The first result was Ark Encounter. I clicked on that article. Under Design and construction is "AiG considered twelve different possible lengths for the biblical cubit, and AiG chose to use a length of 20.1 inches (51 cm)."

    That is the answer.

    I would not like to search that long online to find the rest of those right answers to put in for Livvie's math.
    I see that you probably just did all of those for me, that it's probably all you'll do for now, right? 

    -I got the first question answer, & I say that one is right.
    For the 2nd question, you sure if that will just be '1' ?
    From quora, I thought I got like the answer 'rod' from it, will that be wrong?
    May have to tell me again, what will be the answer for the 5th/last question?

    I will show you what answers I copied & got in so far for the same Livvie's math question:

    Martina did the challenges that I gave to you and she got them all right. I’ll do the original worksheets you posted to me on this thread but I’m going to ignore all of the ones after that.  As soon as Martina sends all of your worksheets that she didn’t do, I’ll do those also but I’m going to ignore the worksheets you post after that.  I’m also not going to pay attention to the due dates.  Martina and I are basically trading worksheets and challenges.

    Okay, & I will post another worksheet thread soon after I look at the one that You just did-if you okay on that for me to just set it on?, & okay I will still grade the one(s) to the percentage & still give you some credits to the one you will do!
    I bet that math I set would be really easy & goes really quick for you-that you do know (the really complicated) math that's advanced! This post was edited by DannyPetti at March 11, 2023 2:52 PM MST

    No.  A rod was 12 cubits.

    The relationship of the rod to the smaller units of distance in the Sumerian, Akkadian and Babylonian systems was 1 rod = 2 reeds = 6 steps = 12 cubits = 18 feet = 360 fingers = 2160 grains. This post was edited by Livvie at March 11, 2023 1:21 PM MST

    The next math problems you'll give out-I would like many easier math problems than few hard math problems, & to give-out another different math page the next day or each day-as if I might look for easier math out of those other math pages.
    That's about how I will give-out math problem pages.
