Section 8

2. ## Math Problems

If you paid attention in math class, you might remember your "Order of Operations":
1.) Parenthesis
2.) Exponents
3.) Multiplication and Division from left to right
4.) Addition and Subtraction from left to right

109.5 (Sounds like a radio station)
9
406.4
223.15

But did Domino use the proper Order of Operations?

3. ## US Maps with Circles

I thought about trying to figure out where the center of each of these circles landed. But when I started to do that, I noticed something...There are three circles that line up perfectly straight on a vertical axis. And there are three circles that line up perfectly straight on a horizontal axis. These two intersect. I'll let you figure out which circle that is, and what location in the US that would be...

I didn't bother trying to figure out all of the circles after that.

4. Is a calculator necessary to solve these? Just asking...

HINT: I did not use one when I made any of the puzzles, clues or allusions in the book. In fact, I think I may have used one only after publishing the book to see if there was a selling point when I'd once again have a \$1000 to use on another adventure. My calculator must have been broken because it hasnt happened.

6. That's actually good to know... thanks,D!

7. Interesting gate indeed Domino. It's obvious that the arch is dominos but the supports still elude me.

8. Not sure how to take the arch or the support... I could get a little bit from the arch using:

...but not enough to get me anywhere... and the middle section throws me. The one curious symbol from the TOC and the eccentric cross... or X (I tend to think of Cross and X interchangeably...)

9. I thought braille for the supports, but the arch is definately dominoes. But the braille doesn't really work for the right support. Not for me anyway.
