Rules of the crossnumber
- Although many of the clues have multiple answers, there is only one solution to the completed crossnumber. Solvers may wish to use the OEIS, Wikipedia, Python, a book of log tables, etc to (for example) obtain a list of cube numbers, but no programming should be necessary to solve the puzzle. As usual, no numbers begin with 0.
- 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.
