On the Subject of Hereditary Base Notation
I'm not really sure why we invented fancy number systems. We now have to deal with our creation, in an explosive way.
See Appendix H for the description of Hereditary Base-N Notation.
On this module, there are two number displays and 18 buttons, labeling 0 to 9, A to F, Clear, and Submit.
The bottom display shows a non-hereditary base-N number where N is a number ranging from 3 to 7..
Use the bomb and its edgework and count the number of true statements in the table below. This number will determine the base value K.
|Lit indicator FRK is present.||The last digit of serial number is odd.||The first digit of the serial number is even.|
|Unlit indicator SIG is present.||There are more than 36 modules on the bomb.||There is exactly 1 module with "Forget" in its name.|
|The first two characters of the serial number are letters.||Lit indicator BOB is present.||Unlit indicator IND is present.|
|More unlit indicators than lit indicators.||The initial time is 15 minutes or less.||There are Ternary Converter, Simon Stores, or UltraStores modules on the bomb.|
|There are more than 4 batteries on the bomb.||There are 2, 3, or 5 battery holders on the bomb.||There are Bases or Indigo Cipher modules on the bomb.|
