Further developments of the 2-triplewatch
by Flavio Ubaldini
In the conclusions of previous article, The concept of n-triplewatch, I wrote:
“our conjecture is that it is impossible to create a 2-triplewatch because it is impossible to find a 2-tripleformula for the 7. Can anyone find a 2-tripleformula for the 7? What about the other triplewatches? If you accept the challenge to produce other n-triplewatches or other rules, please let me know.”
Well, our conjecture was clearly wrong. First of all, because an American colleague had already created the 2-tripleformula below for 7.
Which had led to the 2-triplewatch below.
Additionally, Lorenzo Folcarelli, a young student at Politecnico di Torino, sent me the new 2-triple formula below for the 7.
Which led to the new 2-triplewatch below.
Finally, professor Shaun Stevens suggested a further 2-triple formula for the 7.
With which I generated the further 2-triplewatch below.
I just wanted to remind you that the rule is that we want to express all the integers between 1 and 12 by only using the same digit n correctly combined by any mathematical symbol exactly 3 times. The objective being to produce what we called an n-triplewatch.
We produced some general rules.
1 = √n×√n/n
2 = (n+n)/ n
3 = √((n-.n)/.n)
4 = ?
5 = n/(.n+.n)
6 = (√((n-.n)/.n))!
7 = ?
8 = ?
9 = (n-.n)/.n
10 = √n×√n/.n
12 = ?
Is anyone able to produce new triplewatches that are not already listed here or, even better, new general rules?
