Math/CS Club Talk: The License Plate Challenge
Join us for a math/cs club talk on a puzzle involving license plates.
Dr. Lidia Gonzalez presents this math/cs club talk.
The License Plate Challenge is a sort of solitaire that involves using the digits on a plate to construct a valid number sentence. For example, the digits in the plate ABC1234 can be used to create 4-3=2-1. In this talk, I explore the question of whether, given certain conditions, it is possible to construct such a sentence for all possible plates.
No prior knowledge of the topic is assumed.
All are welcomed. You do NOT need to be a math or cs major to attend.
