SteemMonsters Contest (Market Puzzle) -- 3 SteemMonsters Packs OR 3 SBI shares!

in #steemmonsters2 years ago (edited)

Hey all! I’m back with another contest! Unlike my last contest, in which you had to survive as long as possible, this contest is about being the first to comment the correct answer! I hope you like it, since it required more effort than my previous contests and I hope it's a bit challenging & fair for everyone :)

Here’s what the contest is about:

Contest

Suppose, you’re on the trade-market and you see these trades happening:

PS: The numbers in the red are the amount of cards. A 2 means that it's 2 cards.
PS2: I was able to solve it myself, so it's certainly possible with the info you are given.

(Scroll to the bottom if you wish to see the version in words instead of pictures!)


Now the value of each card magically stays the same at all times and, of course, this is fictional so the values are not real card values.

Now it's your job to figure out how much STEEM each card costs! Give the value of each card like this:
A = 1.00 Steem
B = 2.00 Steem
C = 1.25 Steem
D = 2.75 Steem
E = 21.55 Steem
^ The values above are not the values you should find...

The first to get it correct wins!

Prize

Now onto the grand prize...

The first to find & comment the 5 correct answers gets: 5 SteemMonsters Beta BoosterPacks & 3 SBI shares!

Textual Version

PS: If you have trouble with the image, please find the textual version you like:
5 MI + 4 AS === 3 LN
2 LN + 4 MI + 3 AS + 7 TP === 15 ZM
2 TP + 1 ZM === 1 AS + 0.10 STEEM
2 LN + 3.15 STEEM === 4 ZM + 2 MI + 1 AS
2 MI + 3 TP === 1 AS + 1.75 STEEM

Malric Inferno = MI
Alric Stormbringer = AS
Lyanna Natura = LN
Tyrus Paladium = TP
Zintar Mortalis = ZM

5 Malric + 4 Alric === 3 Lyanna
2 Lyanna + 4 Malric + 3 Alric + 7 Tyrus === 15 Zintar
2 Tyrus + 1 Zintar === 1 Alric + 0.10 STEEM
2 Lyanna + 3.15 STEEM === 4 Zintar + 2 Malric + 1 Alric
2 Malric + 3 Tyrus === 1 Alric + 1.75 STEEM


Good Luck & Have Fun! :)

Sort:  

c = 1.5,
d = 4.85,
x = 2.5,
y = 7.75,
z = 14.5

c Tyrus
d Zintar
x Malric
y Alric
z Lyanna

Yup, correct :)

Congratulations on winning!

Tip: Try to "isolate" and then compare or replace for isolated variables.

For instance, can you reach a situation where you have 1 Tyrus? If so, do so, then replace a, say, 5 Tyrus elsewhere with 5 * [Tyrus Value].

Alternately, can you reach, say, 2 Tyrus in two different lines? Yes? Then you can then position each of those things the 2 Tyrus are worth versus one another.

And you can chain the above.

Have fun.

Yup, that's the best way to do it. Nice tip... Let's see if someone is smart enough to use it (or figure it out by themselves)

c = 1.5,
d = 4.85,
x = 2.45,
y = 7.75,
z = 14.5

The first trade does not correspond with your answers.

x = 2.45 IS 2.5!

Can you tell what is c, what is d, what is x, what is y and what is z?

c Tyrus
d Zintar
x Malric
y Alric
z Lyanna

It's not entirely right (your numerical solutions)

oh no, maybe a calculation error. Do you want the resaults in fractions?

Decimals is alright. Just 1 of the answer isn't correct :P

mmmh i need to review

MI = 2.5
AS = 7.75
LN = 13.5
TP = 1.5
ZM = 4.85
All price are in STEEM. :D
Good Luck To Me.

Very well, but 3 minutes too late... Sciack already solved it. I'll send you 1 booster pack as second prize though ;)
