On the Subject of Ladders
I wonder what is at the tops of these ladders.
- This module will contain three ladders underneath its panel. Press the round submit button to start the module and reveal the first ladder.
- Select a rung to break it. For each stage, break the correct rungs on the stage’s ladder, and press the button to submit. A correct answer reveals the next stage’s ladder, while an incorrect answer incurs a strike and resets the broken rungs. A successful button press on Stage 3 results in a solved module.
- The colors of the rungs on a ladder do not change upon a strike.
- The order in which the rungs are broken only matters on Stage 3.
- This module’s colors and abbreviations are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, cyan, purple, and gray.
Stage 1- Color Sequencing
Each cell in the table below represents a color sequence for three adjacent rungs that can be read either upwards or downwards. Identify all applicable cells in the table based on the edgework. Only one of the applicable sequences will be present on the first ladder. Break these three rungs and press the submit button to advance to the second ladder.
|3+ letters in Serial||3+ numbers in Serial||Serial contains a vowel||Serial contains C,L,1,M, or B|
|0-1 Batteries||P C G||O Y G||R C R||A B G|
|2-3 Batteries||C C A||G R P||Y B O||R C A|
|4+ Batteries||P O B||O R B||Y A G||P A C|
Stage 2- Binary Conversion
The second ladder’s rungs represent an 8-digit long binary number displayed using two colors. A rung of a different color is present to distinguish the end/start of the number. When read vertically, the higher rung is the more significant bit, and the lower rung is the less significant bit. Use the two colors that represent the binary number as rows/columns in the table below to identify which color represents a 1. The other color represents a 0. The rung of the third color will represent neither a 1 nor 0, and will never be broken.
