Let\'s do some detective work. Reread the description of Kreskin\'s transmission of numbers (pg. 2-3). Read it very carefully. How many numbers did Kreskin include among those that he said he would transmit? Write down all the possible numbers that Kreskin could transmit, according to his statement to the audience.




My answer:


I may being with the list of all odd numbers between 1-50, twenty-five (25) of them: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43, 45, 47, and 49. But, I must follow the guidelines: two digits, both odd, and not the same odd digit. Therefore, Kreskin\'s audience can choose from a possible list of eight (8) numbers: 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 35, 37, and 39. (I may have just listed the 8 possible numbers, but I wanted to represent the systematic approach, which will represent my complete understanding.)
