00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.380
So, time for the solution. I asked you before - I gave you a hint saying that
2
00:00:04.380 --> 00:00:09.290
the third row here, which looks like some kind of binary, is equal
3
00:00:09.290 --> 00:00:13.740
to the Roman numeral row above.
4
00:00:13.740 --> 00:00:18.290
In the Roman numeral row above, we have a house with 7 in it is equal to
5
00:00:18.290 --> 00:00:23.290
142,857 and this is equal to something with a house in it!
6
00:00:23.290 --> 00:00:27.680
Well, we already know that that something is a 7 so we can equate this 7
7
00:00:27.680 --> 00:00:33.700
with 0100. Now, this is not binary because
8
00:00:33.700 --> 00:00:40.760
100 in binary is 4, but it is binary reflected Gray code.
9
00:00:40.760 --> 00:00:46.140
So this is binary reflected Gray code, and once you remember that we can do the rest.
10
00:00:46.140 --> 00:00:51.140
This is equal to - 1111 - in binary reflected Gray code -
11
00:00:51.140 --> 00:00:56.940
is 10. 0101 is 6, so we have 10 to the power of 6,
12
00:00:56.940 --> 00:01:03.180
minus 0001 which is just 1,
13
00:01:03.180 --> 00:01:07.260
and all this divided by 7.
14
00:01:07.260 --> 00:01:13.630
Now, 10 to the power of 6 minus 1 is 999999
15
00:01:13.630 --> 00:01:24.170
That's strange! Is 999,999 divided by 7,
16
00:01:24.170 --> 00:01:27.740
equal to the 7 in the house, which means it's equal to -
17
00:01:27.740 --> 00:01:32.740
142,857. Is it?
18
00:01:32.740 --> 00:01:40.600
Get out your calculators and check! It is! How strange!
