On the Subject of Faulty Chinese Counting
It’s been well over a year, and I still don’t know if you buy your china in China.
This module contains four keys, each with a colored Chinese number on them, and two LEDs, each cycling 3 colors.
Using the color missing from left LED as the row and the one missing from the right LED as the column, consult the table below to get an order in which to press the keys.
- A = Ascending in value
- D = Descending in value
- C = Ascending in number of characters of the actual value, descending in value in ties.
- H = Descending in number of characters of the actual value, ascending in value in ties.
N.B.: Multiples of 10 are expressed using a number, and then 十 (For example, 20 is 二十). 100 is written as 一百, and 0 is written as 〇.
