More SAMPLES of MUMBERS (Mamikon's numbers).... ©1997, Mamikon

The Game is to express a given Number in words using the very same Number of letters.

The simplest and most creative game

Coming up with new Ideas and making them work in a moment is the essence of this game...

STIMULATES LEARNING NEW CONCEPTS

Why should one want to learn various concepts, like "square root"? To be able to play my game...

This is a good GROUP game! Use in classrooms.

There are many mistakes in the examples below. Take the idea and try to fix them.

Here are examples of possible general representations:

6k =OneSixAndSix...(k-1 times)

7k =IfSevenToSeven...(k-1 times)

8k =OneEightAndEight...(k-1 times)

9k = ItIsANinePlusANine ...(k-1 times)

10k = ANumberTenAddedToTen ...(k-1 times)

11k = It'sAnElevenAndAnEleven ...(k-1 times)

12k =ItIsOneDozenPlusOneDozen...(k-1 times)

Combining the above periodic terms we can get a word_representation for any number over 5.

6m+7n =OneSixAndSix...(m-1 times)ToSeven...(n times)

6m+8n =OneSixAndSix...(m-1 times)AndEight...(n times)

=OneEightAndEight...(n-1 times)AndSix...(m times)

8m+7n =OneEightAndEight...(m-1 times)ToSeven...(m times)

9m+6n =ItIsANinePlusANine ...(m-1 times)AndSix...(n times)

=OneSixAndSix...(n-1 times)PlusANine ...(m times)

9m+7n =ItIsANinePlusANine ...(m-1 times)ToSeven...(n times)

9m+8n =ItIsANinePlusANine ...(m-1 times)AndEight...(n times)

=OneEightAndEight...(n-1 times)PlusANine ...(m times)

10m+6n =ANumberTenAddedToTen ...(m-1 times)AndSix...(n times)

=OneSixAndSix...(n-1 times)AddedToTen ...(m times)

And So On...

Here is the Table summarizing our possibilities:

6m;

7m, 7m+6n;

8m, 8m+6n; 8m+7n;

9m, 9m+6n; 9m+7n, 9m+8n;

10m, 10m+6n; 10m+7n, 10m+8n, 10m+9n;

11m, 11m+6n, 11m+7n, 11n+8n, 11m+9n, 11m+10n;

12m, 12m+6n, 12m+7n, 12m+8n, 12m+9n, 12m+10n, 12m+11n;

Only a few of them are enough to represent any number, for instance:

6m+8n gives us all even numbers, starting with 6; and

6m+7n, 6m+9n, 6m+11n provide us with the leftover odd numbers.

You can chose other options from above or create your own.

 

We have proved the following (almost in every Language)

THEOREM:

Every number can be represented with words using exactly the same number of letters.
