### 14 Divisors

What is the smallest number with exactly 14 divisors?

### Summing Consecutive Numbers

Many numbers can be expressed as the sum of two or more consecutive integers. For example, 15=7+8 and 10=1+2+3+4. Can you say which numbers can be expressed in this way?

### Rule of Three

If it takes four men one day to build a wall, how long does it take 60,000 men to build a similar wall?

# Weekly Problem 20 - 2010

##### Stage: 3 Short Challenge Level:

The sum of the numbers on the faces is $2+3+4+...+9=44$.
Each number contributes towards the sum on exactly 3 vertices, so the sume of all the vertices is $3\times 44 =132$. This is shared equally over $6$ vertices so the sum of each vertex must be $132 \div 6=22$.
The sums at each vertex must be equal, so in particular $G+H+9+3=F+G+H+5$ which gives $F=7$. Then the vertex sum $F+G+J+9=22$ and, since $F=7$, we get $G+J=6$.

This problem is taken from the UKMT Mathematical Challenges.
