Somebody pass the dunce cap.

Math puzzle time!

What should be the ratio of the height to the radius of the base of a dunce cap to maximize the ratio of volume to surface area of the dunce cap (thus not including the base of the cone)?

Everyone knows 13 is an unlucky or negative number.

Squaring a negative makes it positive at 169.

When talking about luck, fate, or karma, one must appease the gods in order to be favored.

So 1 is given to the gods from your total. Leaving 168 units of good fortune for you.

Hehehee. Apologies in advance to teliot. Something about the intense and esoteric math stuff he brings causes me to tease him with gibberish.

Is waving cats some sort of good luck ritual? Does one require 168 of them?

More like the gods take 168 and leave you to get by with the 1. From personal observation, poor people pray more than rich ones.

Is 168 the lowest number divisible by 7 or more 1 digit numbers?

Not counting 0, it is divisible by 1,2,3,4,6,7,AND 8 with no remainder. IOW, 7 of the 9 numbers, leaving out only 5 and 9.

If not, what is, and which numbers?

Yes it is the smallest number that fits that criteria. Here’s the check: through out 8 and 6 because they are both multiples of other numbers on the list (2*4 and 2*3). You are left with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7. Multiply them together and you get 168, the lowest number divisible by all those numbers.
