Today, February 20, is the 20th birthday of Kristina, a super-talented violinist who is also very good at Mathematics.
Let’s warm up with the following steps in honour of Kristina…
- Start with 93, the ordinal number of this blog post.
- Add on 100, for Kristina’s magical performances on the violin.
- Multiply by my favourite number, 3.
- Since I love it so much, let’s repeat step number 3 !!
Kristina wouldn’t need a calculator to figure out (93 + 100) x 3 x 3 = 1737,
and I’m pretty sure the result would make her laugh again–at least a little bit!–as I’ve often cooked up quick, fun puzzles resulting in the number 1737, because Kristina’s treasured violin dates way back to that very year!
