First Minister:

  • Since we have reached 500 endorsements on our delegate, I am once again raising the endorsement cap. The new endorsement cap is now 150. If you are not endorsing the delegate, the endorsement cap will remain at 10, so stop slackin' and endorse the delegate!

Saturday Edition


Math Puzzle

You are in charge of the national mint of your nation, and you want to come up with a way to be able to make change with at most 2 physical coins. Printing money is expensive though, so you want to be able to do this with as few types of coins as possible.

What is the smallest number of unique coins needed for every value between 1˘ and 100˘ to be a combination of 1 or 2 coins? And which coins would you need?

(Hint: This can easily be done with 18 coins of values: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90. Figure out how to do it with fewer.)
