The five letters look like a URL short link. One such service is ow.ly (owl + y.jpg)

Title = Math is Fun


picture of X with bar over it like average.


another word for average = mean


http://www.amgineriddles.com/lpinvas...isfun/mean.htm (http://www.amgineriddles.com/lpinvasion/mathsisfun/mean.htm)


Taking the average of each we get:


15 21 10 7 12 -> 13
15 12 23 31 9 -> 18
100 5 5 5 5 -> 24
32 12 21 16 19 -> 20
3 12 18 7 5 -> 9
0 2 -3 4 2 -> 1 -> mrxtia -> matrix

x-9 = 6
x2 = 81
3x +7-2x = 22
2(x-3)=22
2x2-5x-12=0 x(x-5)=12 4
√169 = x
Solving for X gives us: 15 9 15 14 4 13 -> oiondm -> domino

yeah, i missed this post and just simplified the domino one, because i thought people were still stuck there,

addendum to the solve post:

so 27212 - rOck, scissoRs, pAper, Lizard, sPock = polar
monopolar expedition is an episode of BB theory
monopolarexpedition.htm is the bonus

then u look at wiki to see what happened on the expedition

http://bigbangtheory.wikia.com/wiki/Bazinga
or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Big_Bang_Theory_%28season_2%29

In monopolar expedition it was the first time Sheldon said Bazinga.

leads to bazinga.htm

I only got to domino then I couldn't do the rest. Well done Blind Squirrels! I wouldn't have been able to solve it.
Quick question. Paper comes before scissors, so shouldnt the pic name be 22712 instead of 27212?

probably???

i always think of it as rock, scissors, paper, lizard, spock

my bad

but easy to work out cos 7 has to be scissors then u play with 1 and 2 in the others
