We Got A Problem #1: 6/5/11
June 5, 2011 2 Comments
Today is June 5, 2011, or 06-05-11 in shorthand (05-06-11 in many countries).
Interestingly, 06 + 05 = 11. How many more times in this century will it happen that the month number plus the day number equal the last two digits of the year number?
We’d love for readers to be able to explore this problem, so resist the urge to provide answers in the comments. Instead, we’d love helpful suggestions and ideas about different ways to approach the problem, successful or not. If you’d like to provide a full solution, do so with a pingback to your own blog!
