Week 50 Zone 1 Clues and Solutions

This week’s Zone 1 gift was hidden by @Crennsmind, who persuaded Dot by the amazingness of his hiding place that perhaps trees aren’t that bad. He tucked the gift inside the metal anti-possum ring on a tree near the Melbourne Museum, in Carlton just north of the CBD. And @Zteve1 tracked down the gift, checking many trees in the process.

Clue Z-1: Something that happened in the past could give you a clue for the future.
The Melbourne Museum currently has an exhibit on World War 1, the gift is hidden behind the Museum.

Clue Z-2a and Z-2b:


Clue Z-3:

There is a tennis club/courts (Carlton Gardens Tennis Club) not too far from where the gift is hidden.
Clue Z-4: Clue4 Nearby wildlife.

Clue Z-5:

There is a green fence near the tree where the gift has been hidden, also the park was very much green, even though there was a lot of fallen leaves around

Clue Z-6: Might as well have a play while you think over the clues

There is a playground and basketball court near the trees

Clue Z-7Clue7

The cracks should be unique enough to show the gift is nearby, makes sure to give a point of reference to the area the gift is nearby

Clue Z-8: You might need a pen and paper for this one!

 A = 96 which represents the tram route and B = 13 which represents the closest stop number to the gift. This one is a little evil in a sense as Partial Fractions were taught in Specialist Maths and my engineering degree, but if needed I’ll do a quick video explaining how to solve a different example. This link is particularly helpful: http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/partial-fractions.html

Here is the solution:

Clue Z-11: Out of the old and into the new in 2000

At this point the gift was found.

Clue Z-12:  Clue12 The Melbourne Museum is in the bottom left corner, and the gift is just above it.

Clue Z-14: It’s almost a case of X marks the spot On the map, the middle of the X behind the museum is 20m away from where the gift is located.

Clue Z-15: Sometimes more dimensions are desired There is an IMAX theatre attached to the Melbourne Museum showing a range of 3D movies
