SPEED FLASH ANZAN

WORLD RECORD

SPEED FLASH ANZAN WORLD RECORD RULE

Since the correct result of adding one set of numbers in one of the ten world record attempts (at most ten world record attempt can be done in every 24 hours) can be guessed (for high number of flashing numbers) by saying the same number (that is close to average of maximum and minimum of flashing numbers times the number of additions) repeatedly, at each “Speed Flash Anzan” world record attempt 5 sequential set of additions must be correct.

In order to break the “Speed Flash Anzan World Record”;

1-) The number of flashing numbers must be multiples of 50 for one digit numbers. The number of flashing numbers must be multiples of 25 for two digit numbers. The number of flashing numbers must be multiples of 15 for three and four digit numbers. The number of flashing numbers must be multiples of 10 for more than four digit numbers.

2-) The score points calculated according to the formula given below must be over the existing highestSpeed Flash Anzan World Record”.

3-) Each “Speed Flash Anzan” World Record Attempt is composed of 5 sequential set of additions. If one of the additions in the set is wrong, the next “Speed Flash Anzan” World Record Attempt starts.

4-) "Memoriad Flash Anzan Software" must be used for the world record attempts.

5-) The number of record attempts is restricted to 10 within a period of 24 hours.

Points = (1/t2).n.m.2(m-1)

t : time interval of flashing numbers in seconds.

n : the number of problems or the number of flashing numbers in the question.

m : the number of digits of the flashing number.
