5. ### Federer's draw in Dubai

That's totally rigged. If this was fair he should have drawn Tsitsipas in the 1st round. Khachanov in the 2nd. Nishikori in the 3rd and Cilic in the 4th round. Easiest draw ever.

Lol Being the over thinker that I am I was looking for some complex reason in it. At first I thought that the bird didn't put all it's weight on the truck lol. Then I realised that it's a trick question. I am actually bad at those. I am good at observing patterns. Especially if the patterns are...

Ah I get your point now about one extra revolution even when not in rotatory motion. Some nice intuition there. For the mathematical solution watch this video.

12. ### Should INDIAN WELLS become the 5th slam

Barcelona would draw the crowds if it is given slam status. So would the Pune Open. Doesn't mean that we make them slems. 5 slams would be overdoing it. The tour is loaded but it's in a perfect state with 4 slams. Players are already feeling worn out by the tight schedule. Another slam would...

I got the first one wrong. Was too eager to jump on 3 lol. The solution surprised me. Got the second one right though. It's an Infinite Geometric Progression problem. 0.307 is the probability of Bobby winning the point. Also found your solution and I agree with it. I loved this problem. Nice one.

21. ### Novak Djokovic - Overcoming Adversity | The Movie (2016-19)

No offence to the video makers or anyone else but 12 minutes of adversity in a 46 minute long movie is not how you do it. Should have shown more about his moments of doubt. Adversity is a prime instrument for making a movie touching and heartfelt. The characters shine through adversity. Victory...

With every real hour the clock gains 16 minutes. We have to calculate how many hours will it take to gain 12 hrs. So (12hrs)/(16 minutes) is the answer. 12*60/16=45 hrs. I am positive the answer is 45hrs not days.

@SystemicAnomaly @Azure I was thinking what if we had a balance that has 3 hands and it could tell us that which one of the weight on those 3 hands is higher. And it hit me that the whole problem is a generic problem which can be solved by a simple formula:- The number of comparisons required...

45 real hrs after 4:12 pm both clocks will show 1:12 on their hands. But for the real time clock it will 1:12 pm and for the defected one it will 1:12 am. So if the clocks were non digital ones that don't tell the difference between am and pm then both will be aligned in 45 hrs. But if they are...

If one wants to split the bins in a generic way(like a given way to break them in any scenario) I would say that you find the next multiple of 3 in the number line and break the bins accordingly. Lets say for 10 rings, the next multiple of 3 in the number line is 12. 3 equal parts of 12 will be...

@SystemicAnomaly even 27 rings give 3 comparisons. So I think I may have figured out a generic formula. From 1-3 rings it will take 1 comparison. From 4-9 rings it will take 2. From 10-27 it will take 3. From 28-81 it will take 4. From 82-243 it will take 5. From 244-729 it will take 6. So the...

Funnily enough your and my answers give the same number of comparisons in the worst case.
