A - http://www.neopets.com/neopedia.phtml?neopedia_id=68&criteria= Read or use ctrl+f

B - http://www.neopets.com/auctions.phtml Look for the number of items, then divide by 4(half of a half)

C - http://www.thedailyneopets.com/neopets-games/super-hasee-bounce/ Read or use ctrl+f

D - It's either 15 or 16, not sure.

E - http://www.neopets.com/neopedia.phtml?neopedia_id=219&criteria=hannah Read or use ctrl+f

F - http://www.thedailyneopets.com/neopets-games/super-hasee-bounce/ Count, then find square root

Then add them all up, I think.

for D, I used the jellyneo calculator

prejake20 said...

for d its 16

Sara said...

Are these all NST times?

iPanda said...

Don't forget the subtraction, it goes:
A + B - C + D + E + F = ?

Sarah said...

Wouldn't D be six?
Is level and size the same thing?

pedro said...

hi

emilystoys3 said...

Thanks, these comments helped :)

Tea. said...

I used shop size for D. I got 5 for that one.

Sarah said...

When I did D, I got 6.
But its surely not 15 or 16.

Maybe its 5.
Maybe its 6.

The Famoused Guy said...

I don't understand the 'B' section!

Can you all pls let me know

lady_n_thread said...

Where are you getting a 5 or 6? If you go to the create/edit your shop page you'll see what level/size (I believe they're the same thing) shop you have and how much it will cost to upgrade. If you are size 15 and pay 3000 neopoints you will go to a size 16 shop. So the answer should be 16.

iPanda said...

D is definitely 16.

Hanna said...

Actually no. For D I went to the edit a shop page and currently i am on level 15. the cost to upgrade to 16 is 3200 NOT 3000! therefore the answer is 15.

ikke said...

i really do not understand what to do at c, maybe my english is not good enough, could anyone help please?

Hanna said...

nvm! its 16. :s i looked at it incorrectly. sorry! ;)

ikke said...

about D: my shop is now 14, and to upgrade it to 15 it will cost 2800. So to upgrade it once more it will be to 16 on a cost of 3000, so the answer is 16

square root, what does that mean?

ikke said...

Sorry, never mind, i got that with the square root. But I really am stuck on the C, what do they mean, what must I do???

sloansterr said...

This is what I got:
A=8
B=5
C=5
D=16
E=10
F=5

Added together would be 49.
I think thats right...

sloansterr said...

ikke:

For C, you should go to the link. Then look to see what the highest multiplier for hasee bounce is. The highest is 5, but you can check it out for yourself.

sloansterr said...

OHHHH shoot hang on...
it's not 49.
I forgot the subtraction part.

A=8
B=5
C=5
D=16
E=10
F=5

A + B - C + D + E + F

So I think the answer is 39 then?

katecdc said...

The answer is 38, and I will explain why...

A=8 (look in the Neopedia)
B=5 (20 items on auction page, half of that is 10, half again is five)
C=5
D=15 (the level of your shop if you JUST paid 3000 NP to upgrade it, so it cannot be 16 because you would have paid 3200 NP if your shop level is 16)
E=10
F=5 (There are 25 guild neighbourhoods, the square root of 25 is 5)

A+B-C+D+E+F
=8+5-5+15+10+5
=38

Tadah!

Nele said...

I think the shop size thing is actually 15
Every upgrade costs 200 np, 3000/200=15

princess bunny girl said...

I think the answer to D is 15, not 16. And I think it's for a reason relating to the out come of the numbers. But also, it states,

"D = The level of your shop if you just paid 3000 NP to upgrade it."

It states you had JUST paid and to UPGRADE IT to the next level.

Joshu said...

Fort D: When I used the jellyneo.net shop calculator, I got 6!!!

ikke said...

Sloansterr, thanks for the explanation!!

Tiffany said...

D = The level of your shop if you just paid 3000 NP to upgrade it.

the answer would be 6 because it doesn't just cost 200 np every time you upgrade. It's 200 plus the previous amount. So the next one will cost you 400 then the next one will cost 600 np...
I used http://sunnyneo.com/shopgallerycalculator.php

Ashley said...

D is 16 because it costs 3000NP to upgrade from size 15

See:
From Level 1 to Level 2=200MP
2-3=400
3-4=600
4-5=800
5-6=1000
6-7=1200
7-8=1400
8-9=1600
9-10=1800
10-11=2000
11-12=2200
12-13=2400
13-14=2600
14-15=2800
15-16=3000

Also, remember you have to subtract C not add it, so basically B and C cancel each other out.

Angelina said...

It's 16 because if you break the question into:

The level of your shop

if you

just paid 3000 NP to upgrade it.

So it clearly wants the level of your shop (now) if you just paid 3000 NP for the upgrade :D

kelly said...

but to up grade to level sixteen it cost 3000np by it's self.

also although 3000/200 is 15 the first up grade is from level 1 to level 2 thus you have to add one if you want to work it out that way

Louise said...

so did everyone get 29?

Catherine said...

Angelina has a point. So for D, I think that the word 'just' has a significant meaning, but i still dont know if D is 6 or 16, or even 15.

jeannie said...

The JellyNeo calculator calculates the TOTAL number of neopoints spent to upgrade the shop, like Upgrade 1+Upgrade 2+ Upgrade 3+, Well, I think you get the picture.

chrelatious said...

No, using SN's Shop calculator if you want a size 15 shop you pay 21,000 NP, NOT 3,000 NP. Instead, if you pay 3,000 NP you get a size 6 shop. So:

A=8 (+)
B=5 (+)
C=5 (-)
D=6 (+)
E=10 (+)
F=5 (+)

You get 29.

ll*believe in myself-ll said...

D is 16 not 6. 'you just paid 3000np to upgrade it.' it does not mean the total amount you paid from level 1 until now. SN calculator is actually the total np you'll have to pay in order to get to that certain level from level 1.

Frances said...

16 people!!

Super said...

D is 16. thats it. anyone who questions me is wrong.

Gargi said...

It is 39 because a-8,b-5,c-5,d-16,e-10,e-5.

d should be 16 .I won a trophie also !! I got it right .I am a millionare hurrah!!

Gargi said...

It is 39 .I am right.I got a trophie also.!!!

When will the solution to Round 293 be posted?

ultrablue7 said...

I just can say that all the words have a different amount of letters from 3 to 9.
All are related with games.
And I know that you can save the Grand Theft Ummagine game.
I´ve no idea if this can help.
I can´t find anything that helps a bit more.

ultrablue7 said...

I got it!!!!!!!!!!!
It has to be with the levels of Hanna and the Pirates Caves

Look at this:
Just look at the oages number. ;D

How do you get the 2nd ad 1st Place Trophies?

batuum123 said...

When Dr. Sloth was remodeling the east wing of the Virtupets Space Station, he set aside a spherical area for the auxiliary water tank. When full, the sphere could contain exactly 1200 cubic metres of water (or any other liquid, for that matter). However, as a cost-cutting measure, he outsourced the water tank construction to a company that only built water tanks in the shape of regular icosahedrons constructed out of 3 centimetre-thick, low-grade aluminum.

If the icosahedron tank is the largest it can possibly be while still fitting within the spherical area, what is the volume of the tank in cubic metres? Please round down to the nearest tenth of a cubic metre. For example, if you find the volume to be 288.7872 cubic metres, submit 288.7 as your answer.
