MMM #29: We have a winner!

Andreas Albert was selected by Random.org as the winner for this MMM. Congratulations, Albert!

Several of you turned in late entries. To be fair to everyone, I didn't consider late entries for a prize.

People generally solved the problem in one of two ways. They either used a spreadsheet or computer program to add up the 61 angles or they simplified the sum of the 61 numbers, eliminating the need to do lots of tedious arithmetic.

Kelvin Lagota provided a nice example of the second approach and he submitted a very compact and beautifully typeset solution. Check it out here.

I hope everyone has a good Easter. Blinkdagger will be posting the next MMM on Monday.
