Q: Island of Knights, Knaves and Spies

trolley813There is an island with $N$ inhabitants (for example $A_1, A_2, \dots, A_N$), each of them is either a knight, a knave, or a spy. As usual: knights will always tell the truth upon answering a question, knaves will always lie, and spies can do both (however they always alternate the truth value ...

Q: James Bond must Go!

Swiss FrankOnce I was flirting with the receptionist at the gym. She marveled at my international business travel and I joked I was Bond, James Bond. She laughed... and instead of a locker key she handed me a key to the loo! What gives?

Q: Extinction of THEM

Van NgAfter snowmobiles' usage had been wide spreaded, the one of THEM was mentioned to extinct. There are about 400 of THEM in the world. Who are THEY?

 
Hi @CStafford-14
I'm here and ready to talk
 
Hi.
So
Only 1 and 3 work with a mailing address.
 
There's a little wordplay here
 
I'm going to say something
and it will probably give the whole thing away
 
1:08 PM
I think I see where this is going now
 
but here goes:
"Fourscore"
 
NO
I already guessed that!
 
YES
wait you did?
when?
 
The Declaration of Independence... does not include that...
I know who it is
OH
I GET IT
 
:)
 
1:09 PM
grave faces...
It all makes sense XD
 
I thought it would
 
The g********* address...
 
yep
 
Well, I still got Ben Franklin without your help. I'll leave it up to you on who gets the bounty
 
oh, you will of course
 
1:11 PM
:O
 
but you need to give the explanation for Franklin
 
Which, I'm working on.
 
which shouldn't be too hard
 
:/
So is the cipher related to the address or the person?
 
the address. See hint 1.5
 
1:12 PM
I thought so.

Q: How much did he pay for the car?

KellingA man withdrew half the money that was in his bank account to buy a second-hand car, then sold the car two weeks later, receiving only three-quarters of the price he had paid for it. When he paid the money back into the bank account he found his bank balance was £600 less than it had been origina...

Ah, ok.

@Brandon_J, the cipher is really tricky. I've tried extracting the letters at the number positions and words at the number position... Nowhere close.

Q: Just a Simple Number Crossword

greenturtle3141I made a small number crossword for my mathletes club that I thought I'd share. It's not too hard, I think it's just right for a coffee break. Have fun! (Edit: No answer has a leading zero)

 
10:32 PM
@CStafford-14 hummmmm.....that first option should work
are you excluding all spaces/periods/commas?
also which version are you using
?
I picked the one that is considered the most common.
 
10:54 PM
The result is: "mytrhvesaysprinter" "My trhve says printer"?
 
11:08 PM
hmmm.....perhaps I got that wrong
@CStafford-14 the t is supposed to be a g
and the h an a
in "trhve"
 
my grave says printer
Ah
 
right
sorry about that
 
Its fine.
 
Lemme check though
and see if I messed up
 
Could have been my programming though
 
11:10 PM
cause I wanna edit if I did
 
I made a program to check. Want it?
 
if you'd like
I'm gonna go handcount
 
It's Scratch, and the code's a bit jumbled because I managed to make it in my small spare time.
 
190 is supposed to be 189
I think
 
Nope. That's a T

60 characters long
 
Mine's 1141
 
I mean 60 chars/line
 
Just regular characters, no punctuation, numbers, or spaces
 
11:14 PM
in what I put up there
 
wait
190 should be 191
XD
119 should maybe be 121
er no
119 is completely off
:(
make it 154
and that should work
gonna go fix that now
K it's fixed @CStafford-14
can't believe I messed that up
 
no wonder no one could solve it
thought I double-checked it, too
 
I'm trying to reword my answer so that it proves the grave thing
 
11:20 PM
K
 
Where on his grave does it say "Printer"
 
on his headstone
at least that's what he said
 
:/
Who said?
 
he wanted "B. Franklin, Printer"
 
:/
Maybe it isn't there?
Probably a bad site though XD
 
11:22 PM
Franklin wrote what he hoped would be his own epitaph:

The Body of B. Franklin Printer; Like the Cover of an old Book, Its Contents torn out, And stript of its Lettering and Gilding, Lies here, Food for Worms. But the Work shall not be wholly lost: For it will, as he believ'd, appear once more, In a new & more perfect Edition, Corrected and Amended By the Author.[210]
wikipedia
turns out his grave just put his name
but when he was alive
that's what he would say
also the GA was kind of aimed at honoring the dead soldiers
not the slaves
although they deserve a heck of a lot of honor
@CStafford-14
 
Yeah.
Sorry I didn't respond, I didn't see the notification until you mentioned me.
But it's done now.
 
that's OK
 
That was an awesome puzzle! Thanks for making it.
 
Yep
btw the send a letter in me references the apocryhal story that Lincoln wrote the adress on the back of an envelope
@CStafford-14
 
11:26 PM
edit when u get around to it; I'll go ahead and accept
 
I did it a minute ago
 
No I mean for my comments about the slaves and the envelope
 
Holy crap, that's a lot of rep in a day!
 
but u got the bounty
so you don't have to if you don't want too
*to
:)
all in all I got -13 rep for this puzzle with the bounty, but it was so worth it XD
 
-13? How? It was work 100!
worth*
