    Default 8 states

    i found 2 sets of 8 states with something in common
    the letter M and N. what to do with it though.
    any ideas on why the maps are on 2 pgs,and not just
    a whole map to one pg
    does the 8 states being on the eastern half, suggest
    that the 8 states, are in the east




    8 states that begin with M

    Maine
    Maryland
    Massachusetts
    Michigan
    Minneosta
    Mississippi
    Missouri
    Montana


    There are 8 US states that begin with N:

    1. Nebraska
    2. North Dakota
    3. North Carolina
    4. Nevada
    5. New Mexico
    6. New Jersey
    7. New Hampshire

    If ten states can spell CASSIOPEIA, then what can we spell with eight states?

    I cannot find any constellations in the map on page 28 that have eight letters in their names. There is a combination though of Lynx (4) and Lyra (4) constellations, No states have an x in them though.

    Cassiopeia was coded 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, I , II, III, IV to get the coding for the letters.

    How would we code for an eight letter word?

    If Cassiopeia is the clue, the five stars that make it up are Alpha, beta, gamma, delta and epsilon or 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. That would leave the remaining letters I, II, III.

    Anyone up to trying to run the permutations? Should the ten used states from cassiopeia be eliminated?

    Would it be feasible to also eliminate the "PINE TREES" states?

    (ie Nevada, Idaho, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, West Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, Oregon, Louisiana)
