A carnie who is an extreme fan of mathematics was asked a strange question by a university student. The student asked how many rides were there total in this amusement park.
The carnie, being polite, said this.
"This number you are seeking reflects the main emotion you feel when riding these rides, especially if you love these rides. A prim graph of bad luck has this number of edges. Whether that is good or bad depends on you. I repeat the common base twice as a quaternary. A Norwegian man's theorem will show this numeral if you add the same luck described earlier. That is how many rides are here."
So, can you crack this Holmes-worthy mathematical code? How many rides are here?
