## A BIG number

Visible to anyone in the world

These numbers have the property that if you double them you get a perfect square

2, 8, 18, 32, 50, 72, 98, ...

And these have the property that if you multiply them by 3 you get a perfect cube

9, 72, 243, 576, 1125, ...

Some numbers are in both lists; the smallest is 72 and

2 x 72 = 122, 3 x 72 = 63.

It's not possible to extend this and find a number n such that 2n is a square, 3n a cube and 4n a fourth power. However it was asked on Quora what the smallest number is such that n such that 2n is a square, 3n a cube and 5n a fifth power. Alon Amit showed the answer is 215320524. In full this is

6810125783203125000000000000000.

I decided to extend this to the next prime number, 7, and found the smallest n such that 2n is a square, 3n a cube, 5n a fifth power and 7n a seventh power is 21053140584790. This impressive number evaluates to

150462810922326152710290228433686961530697356776074449373600141938371053848189980134027578261857302770024765419887333164323078738017254430529707573248000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

which has 234 digits.

I think we can continue and add 11, 13 etc. but at this point I ran out of steam!

## Airplane Memento

Visible to anyone in the world

One of the planes a friend crewed in times gone by has been taken out of service and will be recycled but people who worked on her in the early days were offered a piece of the plane as a memento. My friend chose a window and brought it to the pub where it attracted great interest.

Here is the plane it came from. It was window 6 on the left hand side.

## News From The Garden

Visible to anyone in the world

Our garden has a brick planeter, a bit like a wishing well with no well. It was overgrown when we moved here and we never did anything with it until about four years back, when we planted some lavender and a tine holly tree.

Neither exactly thrived, so we decided to redevelop the site. Lavender and holly have been replanted, we hope in a better spot, and we've put in new plants, fewer, but with a more consious design.

The central plant is a quince.This one is ornamental (I think people call these Japonica) but edible quices are a fruit related to apple and pears, and once eaten widely in this country; now unusual and hard to obtain here, although still common in some othe European countries. If you'd like a recipe for baked quince, just ask in the comments.

## Apples and Pears Puzzle Again

Given all three labels are wrong, there are only two possible combinations.

1) Label A & P - contents A    Label A - contents P   Label P - contents A & P

2) Label A & P - contents P    Label A - contents A & P   Label P - contents A

If we take a fruit from A & P as we are permitted inspecting it will tell which of 1) and 2)  is correct.

## Haircut Woes

Visible to anyone in the world

My friend has a thing about barbershops. As soon as he gets in one he's really rude and quickly becomes downright abusive. As a consequence he's gradually been barred from one barber's after another, leaving fewer and fewer for him within reasonable travelling distance.

Eventually it came down to just one. When he went there and asked if they would cut his hair, his reputation must have preceded him. The manager came out and said "We can cut your, but only on condition you treat all our staff with courtesy. Any impolite remark and you're out, and no barber within a fifty mile radius will ever trim your hair again. This is the last chance salon."
