Mathematical Generalization

We've seen many math riddles and puzzles, but what happens if you treat the quantities as variable? For example, what happens if you change the number of coins in a coin riddle, does the answer structure always stay the same? What are the possible outcomes?

Endless Rhythms

Long and longer staircases into the cloud of numbers

The poet Robert Graves once wrote:

Children, if you dare to think
Of the greatness, rareness, muchness
Fewness of this precious only
Endless world in which you say
You live, you think of things like this:
Blocks of slate enclosing dappled
Red and green, enclosing tawny
Yellow nets, enclosing white
And black acres of dominoes,
Where a neat brown paper parcel
Tempts you to untie the string.

Children, leave the string alone!

We’ll untie this string.
