Puzzles, Numbers and Infinity : A Treasury of Number Fun and Puzzles - by Tim Sole (Hardcover)
About this item
Recreational mathematics may sound like an oxymoron, but millions play Sudoku every day. The 28 chapters of Puzzles, Numbers and Infinity are self-contained, letting the reader dip in and out of its intriguing puzzles and surprising facts. For example, learn about the fundamental constant of music, a number that most musicians don't know anything about! There follow puzzles involving golf, tennis, and cricket; descriptions of unexpected lotto results; the so-called German Tank Problem; and Einstein's most famous equation. Perhaps the greatest surprise for many readers will come in the book's last chapter - that there is a number bigger than infinity, and a number that's bigger than that, and another.
