This is going to take a long time.

Santos said...

Yep, try to help with some Neopets

Mouse said...

It helps to rule out some that *can't* be it. (Mostly the short letter ones which are easily calculable)

Dunerey said...

i think its wocky

Pollyanna Ferreira said...

blumaroo = 70?

Mouse said...

I got 19 for Blumaroo. Let me double check my math.

Robin said...

Nimmo

n=6 i=7 m=6 m=1 o=(-1) 19

edstock said...

I get Nimmo = 21

Mouse said...

I'm starting to think that making a program, and running it would be faster than this. :D

wish I remembered more java.

edstock said...

I agree with mouse. Writing the program and running it would be quicker than doing them all by hand.

edstock said...

I only get 21 for Ixi.

utopia said...

i think its IXI

Mouse said...

Should be pretty simple true-false structure. Mind, I failed the one programming class I ever took. Heh.

I lost patience and resorted to reasonable guessing. I got a pet name for 29 and decided that was good enough.

edstock said...

29, mouse? I found at least 4 with greater numbers than that.

faces said...

I get Ixi = 49
I x i
2(2)=4 1 16(2)=32
squared=16
changed to 1
+5 +5 +5

1+5+1+5+32+5=49

edstock said...

faces, you have to apply the rules in order. The setting the highest to 1 is the last rule. It must be done after the Roman numerals. So must the squaring.

edstock said...

Mouse said: "Should be pretty simple true-false structure. Mind, I failed the one programming class I ever took. Heh."

Lots of loops and comparisons to check if letters are in particular sets of characters.

edstock said...

Kyrii = -2
Hissi = -1
Zafara = 1
Pteri = 3
Lutari = 3

Those are my bottom 5.

Mouse said...

Hmm, I'm probably doing something very wrong; I got 21 for IXI

I X I
Rule 1: 2 1 2
Rule 2: N/A
Rule 3: 7 6 7
Rule 4: 7 6 14
Rule 5: 14 6 14
Rule 6: N/A
Rule 7: 196 6 14
Rule 8: N/A
Rule 9: N/A
Rule 10: total = 216 so N/A
Rule 11: 1 6 14
= 21

edstock said...

I agree with your calculations for Ixi, mouse. I have exactly the same steps, so only 21.

Pollyanna Ferreira said...

I get 21 for Ixi , too

Perrfy said...

So far it's Wocky with 41

edstock said...

perrfy, I only get 11 for Wocky

El Dr said...

Ok, No Ixi then... but it looks imposible to calculate ALL the neopets names. And I remember rare or limited neopets are pets too...

edstock said...

el_dr said "Ok, No Ixi then... but it looks imposible to calculate ALL the neopets names. And I remember rare or limited neopets are pets too..."

I found 54 on the All the Neopets page. Tedious, perhaps, but certainly not impossible.

dark said...

I get Skeith = 26

/ Nana said...

Xweetok = 23

Ademar said...

shoyru = 12

dark said...

I get bruce = 7

Ademar said...

Lutari = 5

Ademar said...

My Lutari was 7

edstock said...

el_dr, you need Korbat

dark said...

I get kiko = 13
kiko
r1=1+2+1+2
r2=N/A
r3=1+7+1+2
r4=1+7+2+2
r5=2+7+2+2
r6=2+7+2-2
r7=4+7+2+4
r8=4+7+2+5
r9=4+7+2+6
r10=4+7+2+6=19 so 4+10+2+6=22
r11=4+1+2+6=13

Ademar said...

Poogle = 19?

El Dr said...

r4=N/A
r5=2+2+2
r6=N/A
r7=4+2+2
r8=N/A
r9=N/A
r10=4+2+2=8 so N/A
r11=1+2+2=5

Ademar said...

My Skeith was 14 :S

/ Nana said...

Xweetok

[(1 + 5 )*2 ]² + [ 1 + 3 ] + [ 2 + 1 ] + { [ 2+ 1] *2 } ² + [ 1 + 1 ] + [2 + 1 ] + [ 1 ] * -1 =
= {6 * 2} ² + 4 + 3 + { 3 * 2 }² + 2 + 3 –1 =
= 12 ² + 7 + 6² + 4 =
= 144 + 7 + 36 + 4 =
= 151 + 40 = 191 ._.



OMG... incorrect!?!

/ Nana said...

Xweetok = 191 [?]
+ Rule 11
= 194? Õ_O *afraid*

ri66on said...

I got
15 for skeith
3 for lutari
11 for wocky

---

Just to see if something in the rules is throwing us off (maybe threw me off...I don't know)

RULE 3: Roman Numerals: I(1), V(5), X(10), L(50), C(100), D(500), M(1000)

Rule 7: If the last letter (it would be negative) is squared, it becomes positive.

Rule 8: If the last letter is still negative and in NEOPETS, it's like adding to a negative number. Example: Bruce: the E before Rule 8 is -2, so after it becomes -1.

...That was how I did it...I'm not sure where else things could have gone wrong...but according to my calculatons, the answer should be Draik?

dark said...
I get Skeith = 26
Nana said...

I get
Skeith = 12
Xweetok = 31
Shoyru = 10
Lutari = 3

El Dr said...

Draik looks the most scored now.

Ademar said...

I agree

I think I confirm those numbers with you all. Thanks :)

Thanks, LC Solver!

Did it through Java :D, should be bug free. Looks like Draik is it..

Ashi said...

Aren't we forgetting rule 10? The letter with highest point value should be reduced to 9?

Ashi said...

Sorry 1

ellie said...

LOLx, I got only 11 for nimmo.
N--6
I--after applying rule 11 is now 1
M--1
M--(second instance, rule 4) 4
O-- negative (-)1

Add them up, i only got 11

ellie said...

and i got 10 for draik....
D--4(after squaring)
R--4
A--2
I--reduced to 1
K-- negative (-)1

I'm still calculating....hmmm

ellie said...

now i feel like my answer is wrong.... argh!!!

Cindy said...

I really dun understand a thing u r discussing... wat rules?? and is it the ans is elephante??

Lizzie said...

Cindy- We're discussing this weeks Lenny Conundrum....Read the riddle on Neopets and you'll understand.

I am 96% positive the answer is indeed Draik.

Evin7590 said...

I think the answer should be elephante. Will someonle please show me how you got 55 for draik. Cause I keep getting 10. Because you have to reduce the letter with the highest point value to one. making the total to come out to 10.
D R A I K
R1 1 1 2 2 1
R2 1 1 2 2 1
R3 1 1 2 7 1
R4 1 1 2 7 1
R5 2 1 2 7 -1
R6 2 1 2 7 -1
R7 2 1 2 49 -1
R8 4 1 2 49 -1
R9 4 1 2 49 -1
R10 4 4 2 49 -1
R11 4 4 2 1 -1

*Is it me or am i missing something???

LC Solver said...

D is a Roman number digit.

irishclover0921 said...

I just spent 2 hours doing all of the math, and you are all wrong. there is no thinking something is right, you must know. you have to follow the instructions STRICTLY.

min said...

??????????

Lizzie said...

irishclover0921, what are you talking about? I did the math on Draik at least 10 times and every time it came out to 55. I think most people are forgetting that D is a roman numeral..

kelly said...

i don't think that the answer in draik when you do the rules in order i only got 7 for it

Ademar said...

It's Draik *-*


Thanks, LC Solver

katiemurdina said...

can someone please give me the answer to this weeks mystery pic

ben said...

Tank you so much, because of your help I place on the first 250 to answer the LC. Best wish's to you LC solver.

Eric said...

The solution as runnable Perl code.

It gives the same answer as TNT's. I strove for clarity, not conciseness.
