## On the Subject of Colorful Dials

Look at all the pretty colors... *Twist* *Twist* *Twist* *Twist*.

• On the module, you will see 3 dials that are black, each with a small screen above it , a larger screen displaying a 3 digit colored number, a submit button on the top left, and 9 square colors.
• The larger screen will display the 3 digit number in different colors.
• Pressing one of the colored squares will toggle it. Pressing a dial with a toggled color will color that dial in that color. There are 8 different colors: (R)ed, (O)range, (Y)ellow, (G)reen, (C)yan, (B)lue, (M)agenta, (P)urple.
• The black square with the X will reset the dials back to black.
• Set each dial to the correct position/color and submit it at the correct time to disarm the module.
• Submitting the wrong combination and/or submitting it at the wrong time will cause it to strike.

### Step 1: Initial Colors/Positions

• A: Use the position of the colored square (1 - 8) that is the same color as the nth color of the 3 digit number as a column for the cardinal chart.
• B: Use the color of the nth digit of the 3 digit number as the row for the cardinal chart.
• C: The intersection in the cardinal chart will give you an abbreviated cardinal direction.
• D: Use the nth color and digit of the 3 digit number and find the combination in the color grid below.
• E: Count how many numbers around the nth dial that matches the color as the nth color of the 3 digit number.
• F: Using the cardinal from step C and the number from step E, go in that direction in the grid from the square you found in step D that many times, plus 1. Wrap around the grid as needed.
• G: The new square you end up on becomes the initial color/position of the nth dial.

Do this for each dial/digit to get your initial colors/positions. Paint each dial in that color and set the positions to that number.

### Step 2: Final Colors/Positions

Follow the steps below using the same tables above:

• A: Use the position of the colored square (1 - 8) that is the same color as the nth dial in reading order as a column for the cardinal chart.
• B: Use the color of the nth dial as the row for the cardinal chart.
• C: The intersection in the chart will give you an abbreviated cardinal direction.
• D: Use the nth 2 digit number and use the first statement that is true below to get numbers A and B:
• If the Serial Number’s last digit is even, number A is the left digit and number B is the right digit.
• Otherwise, number A is the right digit and number B is the left digit.
• E: Use the color of the nth 2 digit number and number A to find the combination in the color grid to use as your starting square.
• G: Using the cardinal from step C and number B, go in that direction in the grid from the square you found in step E that many times, plus 1. Wrap around the grid as needed.
• H: The new square you end up on becomes the final color/position of the nth dial.

Do this for each dial/number to get your final colors/positions. Make sure to press the clear button so you can repaint and reposition the dials.

### Step 3: Submit Time

Depending on the color of each 2 digit number, apply a mathematical operation to it:

TDN - Two Digit Number
LDN - Left Digit Number
RDN - Right Digit Number

• Red: LDN2 + RDN2
• Orange: (LDN - RDN)2
• Yellow: (RDN - LDN)2
• Green: RDN * LDN
• Cyan: Round Down(TDN / (LDN + 1))
• Blue: Round Down(TDN / (RDN + 1))
• Magenta: TDN2 % (LDN + 1)
• Purple: TDN2 % (RDN + 1)

After altering the 3 numbers, add them together, then take the digital root of the number. Submit when the last seconds digit on the countdown timer is equal to this number.
