On the Subject of Burger Alarm

The last thing you’d want in your Burger King burger is somebody’s time bomb, but as it turns out, that might be what you get.

The module has buttons with different burger ingredients on it, a 7-digit code on a number screen, an “order” (X) and “submit” (✓) button, and a timer. To disarm the module, press the order button to find what burger you need to make, and then make the burger with the ten buttons. Then submit the order before your time is up. If the time runs out or you submit the wrong burger, you get a strike.

Go through the eight tables below. Add the number you get from each of the tables to their relevant digits in the code (for the eighth table, use the sum of all the digits in the code). If any of those numbers are greater than 10, take the last digit of the number. Further instructions are below the tables. When the tables say “adjacent”, they mean orthogonally adjacent (not diagonally).

Number #1 Number #2
Last digit of the serial number is prime Else The Clock or Rubik’s Clock is present Else
Ketchup is in the second row Else Cheese in the rightmost column Else Pickles is in the same row as Mayo Else Tomatoes are in the same column as Buns Else
7 4 6 3 0 1 8 2
Number #3 Number #4
No D batteries Else HDMI or PCMCIA ports present Else
Mustard is not in the third row Else Meat is not in the middle column Else Lettuce is adjacent to the submit button Else Pickles are adjacent to the mustard Else
5 9 3 7 1 0 4 8
Number #5 Number #6
Two Factors are present Else NLL or SND indicators are present Else
Onions are not adjacent to the order button Else Ketchup is not adjacent to Mayo Else Tomatoes are below the second row Else Buns are above the third row Else
8 3 6 9 1 0 4 5
Number #7 Number #8
Serial number contains any characters in “BURG3R” Else Ice Cream, Cookie Jars, Cooking, or Pie are present Else
Cheese is in any row below the mayo Else Ketchup is in any row above the buns Else Mustard is in any column to the left of the meat Else Buns are in any column to the right of the lettuce Else
5 9 3 7 1 0 4 8

In the table on the next page, you’ll need to swap some of the rows and columns. Swap the row of the first number you calculated with the row of the second number you calculated. Swap the column of the third number you calculated with the column of the fourth number you calculated. Repeat this with the fifth and sixth for rows, and seventh and eighth for columns.

This is a table

When you press the order button, the timer will set itself to 99 seconds, and then the number screen will have the first order from a list of 5 orders. You can cycle through the other orders by clicking the order button again. For each order, go to the row with the first digit of the order and the column with the second digit of the order. This is the ingredient for that order. Finally, make the burger by pressing the bun button, the ingredient buttons of orders 1–5 in that order, and then the bun button again.

For example, if the order was “no. 37”, the correct button would be in row 3 and column 7.
