Calling All Math Geeks

Bill Amend is a genius! How many people are there who know how to combine higher math and a comic strip?

Naturally, after seeing this I had to do it.

Here's what I got, with some help. (I had to look up the binary and hexadecimal codes online.)

Jason, man, I'm disappointed in you! Binary and hexadecimal are straightforward.. especially binary. That hexadecimal one was nifty too: FF-F8. The 2nd place F's subract each other, leaving 0F-08, and F is the 6th letter, so it's (6+8)-(8)=6. Hooray for non-base-ten number systems!!

Way over my head! Give me a crossword puzzle and I'd be like a hog in the mud, but higher math formulas, CURRE TUAE VITAE! --- run for your life!

--I'm so ashamed. I suppose I don't qualify as a real sudorku master. I knew binary at one time, and do again now, but I still don't really understand hexadecimal. **goes to look it up** Ah, now it makes sense. Wait a minute, don't you mean (canceling the 2nd place F's, of course) (15)-(8)=7?

--Though I like crossword puzzles, that's what I'd probably have to do if I had to do a crossword competition with you.

I've never tried Sudoku in my life because it seems more fun to draw in the boxes and make symmetrical designs (that's what artists do with graphing paper, too :-D). However, Bill Amend is really a genius of cartoonic proportions. Did you see his paint by numbers cartoon? I LOVED that! Though he did slip up with one part...

Yeah, I confess to doing that one too :-)

But what goof was there?

At the bottom of "Paige-Monster's" ponytail there's a small chunk labeled as 2261, which is divisible by both 17 and 19. Oh well :-P

Jason, I'm trying out my blogger identity. Let's see if this thing works (vaguely familiar phrase, aye?).
