Another question: how does 8 + 6 + 2 get you 431.html ? Is it as obvious as "just cut them all in half" , or is ther something more?
It was the answers to questions 8, 6, and 2 added together.
It is somewhat strange that it was half of all the numbers... hmm... was that intentional?

320 - The only way I got this was multiplying 240 * 4/3. I figure that it had to do with the way the fractions were being divided (you multiply by the reciprocal). Perhaps someone reduced too early.

Ding! Ding! Ding we have a winner!
Wait, are you saying that 320 was the correct answer?
I thought the question would, using standard mathematical .... ooooh, what do they call it? parenthesis first, then exponents, then multiplication/division.... anyway, would produce 20, not 320. If I remember correctly, it was a straight 1/4 * 1/2 * whatever.... and came up with 20.
To divide fraction A by fraction B you multiply fraction A by the reciprocal of fraction B.

I was compensated twice via applause points. That's enough for me.

______ is two-thirds of one-half of one fourth of 240 ?
The answer is 20. I have put it into my calculator ten times and each time it comes out 20.

Incidently, I totally concur. "of" by itself in a word problem is used to denote a product. Working left-to-right 2/3 * 1/2 * 1/4 would be 1/12, which times 240 would yield 20.

We're taking what we learned here, and will be applying that to a game that plays longer.

I really like the format of having a game with an intense viral component that creates a high-value domain name when it's all finished. So we have a KILLER UFO-centric domain for the next game, but there will also be intermediate prizes along the way.
