What Do You Know About Magic Hypercubes? - Quiz

In the field of mathematics, magic hypercubes are k-dimensional conceptions of magic squares, magic cubes, and magic tesseracts that increase their dimensions.
Now, let's see what you know about magic hypercubes by taking this short, intelligent quiz.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of the following is denoted as the magic constant in magic hypercubes?

    • A.

      Mk(n)+2

    • B.

      Mk(n)+1

    • C.

      Mk(n)

    • D.

      Mk(n)-1

    Correct Answer
    C. Mk(n)
    Explanation
    In magic hypercubes, the magic constant is denoted as Mk(n). The magic constant represents the sum of each row, column, and diagonal in the hypercube, which remains constant regardless of the size of the hypercube. Therefore, the correct answer is Mk(n).

    Out of all the theorems used in hypercube, who proved the one below? 'A p-dimensional magic hypercube of order n exists if and only if p > 1 and n is different from 2 or p = 1.'

    • A.

      Marian Trenkler

    • B.

      John Hendricks

    • C.

      James Stoner

    • D.

      Kathleen Ollerenshaw

    Correct Answer
    A. Marian Trenkler
  • 3. 

    What is the directions within the hypercube called?

    • A.

      Pathfinders

    • B.

      Digit changing

    • C.

      Reflection

    • D.

      Aspect

    Correct Answer
    A. Pathfinders
    Explanation
    In a hypercube, the directions are referred to as "pathfinders" because they represent the different paths or routes that can be taken within the hypercube. Each direction in a hypercube corresponds to a different path or route, and these paths are often used in various mathematical and computational applications.

    What is the formula of Aspectical variants?

    • A.

      NH~R perm(0..n+2); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1

    • B.

      NH~R perm(0..n+1); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1

    • C.

      NH~R perm(0..n-1); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1

    • D.

      NH~R perm(0..n-2); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1

    Correct Answer
    D. NH~R perm(0..n-2); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1
    Explanation
    The formula for Aspectical variants is nH~R perm(0..n-2); R = ∑n-1 ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) ; perm(0..n-1) a permutation of 0..n-1. This means that the formula calculates the number of aspectical variants, which are permutations of 0 to n-1 with a certain reflection property. The value of R is determined by summing up the expression ((reflect(k)) ? 2k : 0) for each value of k from 0 to n-1. The correct answer is nH~R perm(0..n-2) because it correctly represents the formula for aspectical variants.

    What is described as the change of [i] into [perm(i)] alongside the given "axial"-direction?

    • A.

      Monogonal permutation

    • B.

      Digitchanging

    • C.

      Component permutation

    • D.

      KnightJump construction

    Correct Answer
    A. Monogonal permutation
    Explanation
    Monogonal permutation is described as the change of [i] into [perm(i)] alongside the given "axial"-direction. This suggests that there is a transformation happening where each value [i] is being replaced by its permutation [perm(i)] in a specific direction. The term "monogonal" implies that this transformation is happening in a specific geometric direction, possibly orthogonal or perpendicular to the axial direction. Therefore, the correct answer is monogonal permutation.

    Which formula denotes the Latin prescription construction—modular equations? 

    • A.

      LP = ( ∑n-2 LP x + LP ) % m

    • B.

      LP = ( ∑n+2 LP x + LP ) % m

    • C.

      LP = ( ∑n+1 LP x + LP ) % m

    • D.

      LP = ( ∑n-1 LP x + LP ) % m

    Correct Answer
    D. LP = ( ∑n-1 LP x + LP ) % m

    Which procedure makes use of the isomorphism of every hypercube that changes the hypercube?

    • A.

      Dynamic numbering

    • B.

      Monogonal permutation

    • C.

      Digitchanging

    • D.

      Pathfinders

    Correct Answer
    A. Dynamic numbering
    Explanation
    Dynamic numbering is a procedure that makes use of the isomorphism of every hypercube to change the hypercube. Isomorphism refers to the property of two objects being structurally identical despite their different appearances. In the case of hypercubes, dynamic numbering uses this property to transform one hypercube into another by assigning new numbers to its vertices while preserving the relationships between them. This procedure allows for efficient manipulation and transformation of hypercubes in various applications.
