The cake is a lie...

To solve this module, input the correct settings into the oven.

The settings to input depend on the person you’re cooking for and the meal you are making.

The temperature should be submitted on the left screen, and the time on the right screen.

1. Determining meal and settings

  • To determine the meal you are creating, calculate: number of battery holders - number of indicators + (number of batteries x number of ports) - port plates. Keep adding or subtracting 5 until in the range 1–5.
  • To determine the oven setting you are using, calculate: number of lit indicators - number of unlit indicators + number of letters in the serial number. Keep adding or subtracting 6 until in the range 1–6.
  • If there is a vowel* in the serial number or there is a PS/2 port, the light must be turned on. Otherwise, the light must be off.

Use the number you have calculated for the meal in the table below.

1Pizza 250°C
2Spaghetti Bolognese 160°C
3Chicken Casserole 200°C
4Chilli Con Carne 180°C
5Chicken Pie 180°C

Use the number you have calculated for the oven setting in the table below.

1Bottom Element Heat
2Bottom Element Heat with Grill
3Conventional Heating
4Fan Oven
6Fan with Grill

*Y is considered a vowel.

2. Determining person to cook for

  • If there is a lit FRK or a serial port, cook for Harry.
  • Otherwise, if there is an empty port plate or a lit FRQ, cook for James.
  • Otherwise, if there are more digits than letters in the serial number or there is an unlit SND, cook for Tom.
  • Otherwise, if there is a HDMI, Composite Video or USB port, cook for Erik.
  • Otherwise, if there is a lit or unlit BOB indicator, cook for Bob.
  • Otherwise, cook for Markus.

Determine the time to wait in the table below, using the person and the meal.
