Nonlinear warmer-colder.

Postby Lawsome » Wed May 04, 2016 8:58 am UTC

I'm thinking of a random 6 digit number.

Guess a number, I'll tell you whether you were warmer or colder compared to the last number.

However I will not tell you what method I am using to determine warmer/colder.

The number is 6-digit.

However, you ARE warmer!

Okay, the warmer-colder metric used is almost certainly related to prime factors. 400031 is a prime, and I presume that 401407 is also prime. More prime factors = warmer?

Had the same idea but then 000001 should have been an extreme case. Also 777777 has more prime factors then 999999 and is colder. Unless it's weighted with the powers as well (having e.g. x>y -> 2x being wamer than 2y). However why is 401408 and 802816 the same temperature in that case?

It can't simply be number of prime factors, we have a target number that we're warmer or colder in relation to. It could be something to do with how well our prime factors match the prime factors of the target, but in that case we need to figure out how Lawsome is defining "matches".
