Picking the Winners

We received 75 entries, 52 of which were correct.

So without further ado, the winner of the Chalkdust Magazine issue 04 crossnumber competition is Leif Cooper, who wins a £100 goody bag from Maths Gear. The runners-up, and winners of Chalkdust T-shirts, are Dan DiMillo, Brendan W. Sullivan and Zack Wolske.

Thank you to everyone who entered the crossnumber competition! The competition will return in issue 05 of Chalkdust, released in March.
