Congratulations to Marsha Sisolak, a bilingual kindergarten teacher and mystic
from Thousand Oaks, California.
the first person on Earth to solve the mysteries of my
Nirvana Rings. She receives a free fractal print for
her solution that has a magic sum of 41 with consecutive integers from 3 to 15
for the circles
and outer triangle.
Since a+b+c+d+e (the sum of a circle) will
never equal a+c+e (the sum of a black triangle), she didn't worry about
getting the black triangles to equal the sum. Her triangles sums are
32, 34, 35. We do not know if it is possible for the triangles to have
We do not know if a solution exists for the numbers 1 to 13, excluding
the dark triangles.
