A Facebook Challenge

I recently stumbled upon the following challenge on Facebook.

Puzzle. Type the number of seconds in a week using the smallest number of characters.

I lied. The challenge was to type the same number using the smallest number of clicks on a computer keyboard. There is a slight difference, and I like my version better.



  1. Calcdave:

    I think I can do it in 4 characters

  2. Ivan:

    This is not the right solution but looks good: 4!!*5!!

  3. Leif:

    Definitely can do it in 5.

  4. Leif:

    Ah! worked out how to do it in 4

  5. Tanya Khovanova:

    One of my students suggested that if seconds refer to an additional helping of food, the number of characters could be 1.
