me and my dad came up wit 1000, 1100, 10,000?
is that right?


I think that works also... I was just looking for the next in line for binary count (101,110,111) but if you give me the next 3 beyond 10,000 in yours I will hand out bonus points.
Edit : cancel bonus points, just noticed I told subdork "all future puzzles".

I'd like to know the formula, I cant see how 1000 could come after 100

Perhaps, 1,10,11,100,111,1000 ...?

That's partially why I asked for 3 more #'s from pyro.. seems more like he's following a pattern than a formula.. adding by 4 in binary :?

I could see it more as (1,10,100,110,1000,1100,10000,etc)

Grr.. #'s starting to hurt my head... have to start giving logic problems and such.

I used to play these games all day back in high school. trust me i have had enough subs thrown my way to answr any riddle. this is your answer:
Flip the 7 and 11 min clocks at the same time because once the 7 mins runs out out the first clock, that tells you that there are only 4 mins remaining in the 11 minute clock. once the 7 clock runs out throw it away and immediatly flip the 11 minute one back over for the full eleven minutes. 4+11=15

Each students takes 7 classes each day.
Each teacher teaches 5 classes a day.
Each class has 25 students.
