The name of this guessing game is Guess Your Card. The purpose of this project is to employ various logical methods to figure out which cards each player possesses. The game is completed and won by the first player to correctly state what card he or she has. In this particular game setup there are 4 players, Andy, Belle, Carol and Myself. Each player picks 3 cards without looking at them, cards ranging from 1 thru 9. Andy has the cards 1, 5, and 7. Belle has the cards 5, 4, and 7. Carol has the cards 2, 4, and 6. As of right know I do not know what numbers I have in my possession. Andy draws the question card, “Do you see two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value?” He answers, “Yes.” Next Belle draws the question card, “Of the five (5) odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see?” She answers, “All of them.” Andy suddenly speaks up. "I know what I have," he says. "I have a 1, a 5, and a 7." To figure out what numbers I have in my possession, I will use the process of elimination. I know the numbers of the other players, and information given by the other players I can solve the answer of what are my card numbers. To first solve this problem, I remember that Andy said that he saw two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value. So knowing this I know that 2 of the players’ numbers will add up to the same sum. So I add both Belle and Carol card numbers individually and find out that their sums are different. The information gained from this tells me that my numbers, if added together will be the same as either Belle or Carol’s Cards. Next, I will take in consideration the information given to me by Belle. Belle draws the question card, “Of the five (5) odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see?” She answers, “All of them.” So with…...

Guess Who Movie Analytic Text

...Guess Who Racial Relations Guess Who is an American romantic comedy film about race relations and gender. The 2005 motion picture covers interracial romance of an African-American woman with a white, Caucasian man in a light and farcical manner. It is a loose remake of the 1967 serious and dramatic fashion film, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. Race and ethnic relations are the social, political, and economic relations between races and ethnicities at all levels of society. This area encompasses racism, segregation, and other complex social processes between different racial and ethnic groups. The movie poster precisely portrays the idea and concept of the film. The door being guarded by the African American serious father, the bouquet of colorful flowers held by the white, Caucasian boyfriend, and the in love African-American daughter standing behind her boyfriend reflects one the most important details that illuminate in the movie poster. The daughter of the house brings her white, Caucasian boyfriend home to meet her parents on the occasion of her parents’ 25th wedding anniversary. Her father dislikes him almost immediately because of his race. The movie poster reflects how he is guarding and controlling the door of the house symbolizing how he doesn’t want his daughter’s boyfriend to enter and become part of the family nor part of his daughter’s life because he belongs to a different race. It seems that he believes that if the white, Caucasian man enters the house, he......

Debit Card

...Part III: Debit Card The debit cards have been out in the market since 1960s. They helped to change the way that people used money and bank accounts. Debit cards are frequently used to pay for purchasing at stores or other locations all over the world. They are also worked by debiting money from owners’ checking accounts. For many people in the United States, debit cards have taken the place of cash and checks. However, debit cards are still a relatively new banking tool. The debit card rules has been changed over time since debit cards were out in the market. There are two main changes that attract people’s attention in recent two years. Electronic Fund Transfer Act: New Overdraft Rules According to Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, new rules give debit card users additional options regarding overdrafts. An overdraft usually occurs when a debit card user make a purchase but don’t have enough money in the accounts to pay for it. Banks will cover the costs when card users become overdrawn by charging a fee (Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System [BGFRS], 2010). Banks used to automatically enroll customers in standard overdraft practices. Banks will cover customers’ transaction for a flat fee around $20 to $30 every time customers overdraw their accounts. Banks also offer an overdraft protection plan that provides a link to users’ saving accounts to cover transactions by charge less expensive fees than standard overdraft practices (BGFRS, 2010).......

Guess Your Card

...Logic Application: Guess Your Card Jeffrey Self Professor Mune Lokesh Math 104 Algebra With Applications 19 June 2013 In my scenario I am sitting around the kitchen table with three friends and we decide to play the game Guess Your Card. My friends explain to me that in this game each of us in turn will blindly draw three cards from a partial deck of cards. This deck has had all cards above 9 removed, and for this game’s purposes aces are only equal to 1. Without looking at my cards I am to place them facing out on my forehead so the other players can clearly see the cards. Each of the other players is to do the same. The object of the game is to guess which cards you have on your own head using logic to solve the problem. Players draw question cards that reveal information about player cards, and the first to guess their cards based on the information revealed wins the game. My brother Andy has the cards 1, 5, and 7 showing on his forehead. His wife Belle has 5, 4, and 7. My girlfriend Carol has the cards 2, 4, and 6. Andy is selected to draw the first question card, and it asks if he sees two or more players who’s cards sum to the same value. Andy answers affirmatively. With this information I know that I must have cards that equal either 12 or 16. I know this because Belle’s cards sum to 16 and Carol’s cards sum to 12. Since Andy sees two of us with cars of the same value I am able to confirm that my sum must match either Belle’s or Carol’s. At this point none of us...

Guessing the Card Game

...The Guess Your Card Game In the Guess Your Card game each player draws three cards without looking at them. Each card has a number on it between one and nine. Then all of us place our cards on our heads so that we can only see our opponent’s cards but not the three cards we pulled. Our objective is to guess what cards we have ourselves. The first person to do this wins the game. Throughout game play, each player draws a question at random from a stack of questions. Then each player answers their particular questions based on the cards that they see from their opponents. As previously stated each card has a number on it between one and nine. Andy’s cards are one, five and seven. Belle’s cards are five, four and seven. Carol has two, four, and six. We are solving for my cards which can be any number between one and nine. The strategies used for solving the problem are inductive reasoning and deductive reasoning (process of elimination.) As questions are answered we are able to remove numbers from the one through nine answer set. When Andy pulls the question card, “Do you see two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value? We can ignore his three cards (1, 5, and 7) because we know he could not see them, thus his sum of thirteen would not be one of the sums with the same value. Being able to see Belle’s cards (5, 4, and 7= 16) and Carol’s cards (2, 4, 6 = 12), I was able to conclude that my cars should equal twelve or sixteen. This is inductive reasoning. (a +...

Guess Your Card

...Application- Guess Your Card | | 10/31/2013 | Guess Your Card is when each player draws three cards without looking. Each card has a number between 1 and 9 on it. The players then place their cards on their heads so that everyone but that person can see their own cards; the purpose is so that you can guess which card you have | I am playing Guess Your Card with three (3) other players. Andy has the cards 1, 5, and 7; Belle has the cards 5, 4, and 7; Carol has the cards 2, 4, and 6. Andy draws answers yes to the question card, “Do you see two (2) or more players whose cards sum to the same value?” Next Belle draws the question card, “Of the five (5) odd numbers, how many different odd numbers do you see?” She answers, “All of them.” Andy suddenly speaks up. "I know what I have," he says. "I have a 1, a 5, and a 7." Andy draws the question card, “Do you see two or more players whose cards sum to the same value?” He answers, “`yes.” The sum of Belle's cards 5+4+7 = 16 sum of Carol's cards = 2+4+6 = 12 I found that there are 2 different sums but Andy sees at least two players whose cards have the same sum, which means my cards either adds up to 12 or 16 . If the only odd cards Belle sees are 1, 5, 7 from Andy then I must have a 3 and a 9 which equals 12. My sum either is 12 or 16 and since 3 + 9 = 12, and smallest card is 1, then my cards must add up to 16. We know now that my cards must equal 16 and that I have two cards both 9 and 3 which add to 12. 16-12=4 my......

Smart Card

...Smart Cards for Future Healthcare Systems Secure, efficient, reliable Card-based e-health networks: cutting costs and improving care All around the world, news­ paper headlines warn about the exploding costs of health­ care. Advanced medicines and technology are boosting life expectancy. As a result, people can now look forward to living past the age of 80 – twice as long as 100 years ago. This trend, however, has the side effect of driving up healthcare costs. As people get older, they need more frequent and more expensive care, causing the price of insurance to skyrocket. Clearly, something needs to be done to contain these costs. A number of countries have implemented conventional measures aimed at saving money. One of the most basic measures is the introduction of card­based e­health net­ works, which can help reduce costs remarkably. Card for physicians and phar­ macists, and a Card Application Management System (CAMS).

It contains adminis­ trative insurance information and entitles patients to seek medical treatment. In turn, the patients give their doctors access to their personal medical data, which is stored either on the card or in the e­health network.

Red Card

...just not sure why it took so long." Of course, a few people made waves. |enny Collins seemed appalled. "I can hardly believe it," she wrote. "We used to be much more discerning about who we killed, and we certainly didn't go around flaunting it the way Linda does." |enny was the old-fashioned kind. Linda would never have called her actions "flaunting it." Of course she knew what to do after shooting Larry. She had readThe Enforcement Handbookfrom cover to cover six times, poring over it to see if she had missed anything, scrutinizing every nuance. She had even committed some of the more important passages to memory: Call the police immediately after executing an enforcement-Always keep your red card in a safe, dry place-Never reveal to anyone that you have a red card-Be proud; you're performing an important civic duty. But flaunting it? No, Linda blended in better than anyone in town, rarelytalked and never called attention to herself. She spent most of her days at the Merry ValleyPublic Library, tucked between rows of antique shelves, alone, organizing a modest collection of old books. In the evening she fixed dinner. After Larry had eaten, cleaned up and left the house for "some time alone," Linda would lie in bed reading Iane Austen. No, Linda never flaunted anything-never had much to flaunt. After she shot her husband, Linda returned the revolver to her purse and collapsed onto her oversized couch. She then picked up the telephone, set it in......

Exterior Atmospherics It is not hard to find the parking there, but the parking is very expensive, about $10/hours. C. Interior Atmospherics An equally interesting fact about the two retailers is related to the store environment they offer. In general is a combination of many elements: music, temperature, odor, lighting, layout, decoration, even the sales associates they hire, and others, many of these elements influence shoppers’ behavior playing with their emotions, perceptions and physiological states. - Hollister is strongly targeting to teen-young adults (18-22 years old), who are trendy, good looking and with a lot of sex appealing. As soon as you enter the store a combination of stimulus attacks you, from the extremely loud music, the smell of their signature perfume all over the cloth, poor lighting, good looking sales associates and huge pictures of models all over the store, what are they trying to sell? Excitement, sex, fun, social spaces using lounge furniture, it’s all about being young, pretty and popular. For sure is not the most relaxing ambiance for parents, who most likely wait outside the store until the kids choose whatever they want to buy. But at the end of the day, it’s not about the parents; it’s about the teenagers having a place to be that person they are trying to be. - On the other hand, most of the......

Credit Cards

...Final Draft Although there are many advantages of possessing credit cards, most Americans should not use them; because they do not use them properly to where they become liable or subject to overwhelming debt, which could damage their credit history. Personal credit card debt has doubled in the past four years and personal bankruptcies are at the highest ever, and still more Americans are spending money that they do not have. Credit cards allow and encourage individuals to buy more than budgeted, and this is obviously a situation, which is best to avoid. Knowing when it is a bad idea to use a credit card can help you to avoid adding debt to your credit card. It is no doubt that the use of credit cards have eased the rate in which people obtain goods and services, but the use of credit cards have done more damage to the finances of Americans credit card users than good. Credit cards have become a problem for most American credit card users and there are even cases that some Americans have committed suicide because of the heavy debts he or she owes the credit card companies. Should Americans continue using credit cards? The answer is definitely no as the detriment that comes with using credit cards outweighs the benefits. Credit cards are a huge convenience in everyday life, yet most people are irresponsible when using them. The convenience of possessing credit cards increase the risk of overspending because people can convince themselves to spend more than what......
