The tasks of the Ministry of Education in Honkai: Star Rail – logical and mathematical tests as part of the daily mission “On the threshold of science”, where it is necessary to help a civilian scientist to transfer a dissertation to officials Manet and Bov. The guide tells how to solve all the problems of the Ministry of Education – for each example, the correct answers and detailed explanations are provided.
How to start the daily mission On the Threshold of Science
The quest “On the threshold of science” appears randomly in the tab with daily training. In order to receive a task, you must fulfill the following conditions:
Open the Yarilo-6 region by completing the main storyline. Unlock the daily system.
The start of the mission is in hotel “Goethe”located in the Administrative Region. In the lobby, talk to the quest giver Regin. The man will tell you that he wants to present his dissertation to the High Guardian, but first the work must be shown to the Ministry of Education. In this case, he will need the help of the Pathfinder.
The task consists of several parts that open on the next real day.
Answers to the tasks of the Ministry of Education in Honkai Star Rail
Near the building of the Ministry near the hotel, find an official named Manya. Before accepting the dissertation, she will offer to answer the question: “Which numbers are more: prime or natural?”. Choose the correct option: “Both of them are endless».
Even if you make a mistake, a second attempt is given. It is enough to return to Regin, find out the correct answer, and then talk to Manya again.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 1
The sequel falls on another real day. At the Goethe Hotel, meet Regin, who will ask you to visit the Ministry to find out how things are going with the dissertation. After that, you need to go back to Mana. After inquiring about the job, find out that officials plan to ask a few more questions before making a final decision.
Correct answer: 14
There are 42 cars in the Laimstein parking lot. Once a thief stole the wheels of several cars. Now several cars have only 3 wheels. An employee of the insurance company calculated the damage and calculated that only 154 wheels were left in the parking lot. How many cars had their wheels stolen?
42 cars multiplied by 4 = 168 – the initial number of wheels. Now from 168 we subtract 154 = 14 – stolen wheels. There will be the same number of cars, since the thief stole one wheel each.
1) 42 × 4=168 (number of wheels).
2) 168 – 154 = 14 (number of cars).
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 2
The next day, Regin will again ask the Pioneer to ask the officials about the dissertation. The Ministry will inform that it remains to pass 2 more tests, after which it will be possible to transfer the work.
Correct answer: 162
58 is primrose and primrose is 0. 39 is summer bamboo and summer bamboo is 14. 99 is round peony and round peony is 8. 27 is sunflower and sunflower is 4. , if you put together primrose, summer bamboo, round peony and dory?
Conventionally, each line of the task consists of two parts:
Left: Before the decimal point, numbers are factors, and the word is a product. Right: after the decimal point, the situation is reversed – the word is a multiplier, and the number is a product.
1) 58 are factors of 5 and 8: 5 * 8 = 40 is the primordial. Now the primordial becomes a multiplier: 4 * 0 = 0. So, everything is correct.
2) 39 are factors of 3 and 9: 3 * 9 = 27 is summer bamboo. Now the summer bamboo becomes a multiplier: 2 * 7 = 14. The rest of the variables are calculated in the same way.
3) The second part is a test, so first of all you need to determine which numbers are encrypted in words. 99 and 27 are multipliers: 9 * 9 = 81 – round peony and 2 * 7 = 14 – sunflower.
4) Now add up: 40 + 27 + 81 + 14 = 162 – it will turn out if you add the first snow, summer bamboo, round peony and dory.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 3
Immediately after answering the previous problem, the official suggests solving the following example.
Correct answer: Eric
The wheel thief from the Laimstein parking lot has finally been found. The Guardians have three suspects: Jack, Chris and Eric. The trio started arguing and Jack said “Chris stole the wheels!”. The savvy Cheetah immediately identified the culprit in order to check the Adjutant, the Cheetah decided to hint at the thief without naming him directly, and said: “Strange. Of the whole trinity, only the thief did not lie. Which of the trio stole the wheels from the Laimsteins?
There is a localization error in the task. What Jack actually said was that it was Chris who stole the wheels, not Eric.
Cheetah says that only the thief did not lie. The only one who could lie was Jack, as the rest were silent. So he immediately disappears. But since his words are lies, Chris is also crossed out. That leaves Eric.
Give Regin the good news
After the correct answer, the quiz of the Ministry of Education is successfully completed. However, officials immediately recognize the real author of the work and ask to tell Regina that they accepted the dissertation, but they can give a final answer only after a few months. The pioneer returns to the scientist with good news, to which he enthusiastically remarks that during the waiting time he will be able to develop another theory.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 4
The next time, Regin asks Pathfinder to check out a selection of problems from the Belobog Ministry of Education for his research paper. Contact official Bov and take another test.
Correct answer: Philip
Howard, Philip, and Joyce got together one day. One of them is a good person, another is a bad person, and the third is a swindler. A good person always tells the truth. The bad guy always lies. A scammer can both lie and tell the truth. Joyce said, “Philip is either a good man or a bad man.” And Philip replied, “A good man is either Howard or Joyce.” Which of the three is a scammer?
Under Joyce’s and Philipp’s assumptions, they can both be good, but this contradicts the condition of the problem. Therefore, there is already a lie in their phrase, so they are not good – it remains Howard. Joyce, referring to Philip, says that he can be good or bad. But since a good person has already been found, Philip, according to him, turns out to be bad. Meanwhile, Philip told the truth about Howard – that is, he cannot be bad. Thus, both phrases of Joyce are lies, which means that he is bad, and Philip is a fraud.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 5
The pioneer needs to go to the officials to check a few more quizzes.
Correct answer: 6
1453=0, 1915=1, 2409=2, 6010=3, 9981=4. 8848=?
After the “=” sign, the number of circles in the numbers is indicated. In 1453 they are absent, in 1915 – 1 circle in the number “9”, in 2409 – 2 circles are in the numbers “0” and “9”, and so on. In the number 8848, the numbers with circles are 8. There are 3 of them in total, but in each 8 there are 2 circles. Therefore, 2 times 3 = 6.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 6
The next day, visit the officials to check the next collection of problems.
Correct answer: Julian
Hook plays a game called Guess the Flower with his friends. She invited Julian, Luca, and her sister, who always plays with them, and stuck a flower in each of their hair. There are four colors in total: two white and two purple. And no one, including Hook herself, looked at any of the flowers. Then she told everyone to line up in a column.
Everyone stood in this order: Hook, Julian, Luka and sister. According to the rules, you can only look at the flower of the person in front of you. You can’t turn around and you can’t peep through one. To keep the game fair, Hook blindfolded her little sister because she’s too tall!
None of the players can see what color the flower is in his hair, but we, passing by, can: Hook and Luka stand with white flowers, and Julian and sister with purple ones. Hook tried very hard to make the game fair, but unfortunately, only one of the players can guess which flower is on his head. Who?
Little sister can’t recognize the color because her eyes are blindfolded and she can’t see anything. Julian sees Luka with a white flower in front of her and realizes that if he had a flower of the same color, Hook would immediately say that she has purple. Consequently, Julian realizes that he has a flower of a different shade, i.e. purple.
Tasks of the Ministry of Education 7
During the study, the scientist will offer to re-apply to the officials and report to him about the results.
Correct answer: to the golden door
I happened to learn about an ancient treasure buried in an inconspicuous place in the Snowy Fields. The blue-haired handsome man found a treasure at the end of a big adventure, inside there were two talking doors: one gold and the other silver.
Of the two doors, one always tells the truth and the other always lies. A treasure is hidden behind one of the doors, and an ancient monster is hidden behind the other. A warning is written on the treasure map: both doors can only answer one question.
The quick-witted blue-haired handsome man, after a short reflection, asked the question of the silver door: “What would the other door answer if I asked her what is hidden behind you?” The silver door answered: “She would say that a treasure is kept behind me.” Which door should the blue-haired handsome man go through?
Suppose the silver door told the truth and the treasure is behind it. Therefore, the words of the golden door must be a lie, which is not true, since it would mean that there is no treasure behind the silver door. In addition, the statement itself is contradictory – the silver door retells the words of the golden door, exposing them as the truth, but only one door can speak the truth.
The guide will be updated as new tasks become available.
