Prize crossnumber, Issue 13

£100 of Maths Gear goodies to be won if you can solve it

post

Our original prize crossnumber is featured on pages 58 and 59 of Issue 13.

Rules

  • Each clue in this crossnumber contains two statements joined by a logical connective. If the connective is AND, then both the statements are true. If the connective is NAND, then at most one of the statements is true. If the connective is OR, then at least one of the statements is true. If the connective is NOR, then neither of the statements is true. If the connective is XOR, then exactly one of the statements is true. If the connective is XNOR, then either the statements are both true or they are both false.
  • Although many of the clues have multiple answers, there is only one solution to the completed crossnumber. As usual, no numbers begin with 0. Use of Python, OEIS, Wikipedia, etc. is advised for some of the clues.
  • One randomly selected correct answer will win a £100 Maths Gear goody bag, including non-transitive dice, a Festival of the Spoken Nerd DVD, and much, much more. Three randomly selected runners up will win a Chalkdust T-shirt. Maths Gear is a website that sells nerdy things worldwide, with free UK shipping.
  • To enter, enter the sum of the across clues below by 18 September 2021. Only one entry per person will be accepted. Winners will be notified by email and announced on our blog by 1 November 2021.
