Please go to the non-flash version of Find Grampy - Strict.


After pressing the <Start> button, Grampy will hide behind the hedge somewhere between 0 and 1. To find him you must enter a fraction in lowest terms.

See the program RENAME TO LOWEST TERMS for information on writing fractions in lowest terms.

To help you find Grampy you will be told the number of parts between 0 and 1. Grammy will help by pointing to your right if the fraction is too small and to your left if the fraction is too large. Also, Grampy does not hide himself well. You will see the top of his head behind the hedge.

The computer will keep track of the number of times you find Grampy and the number of tries. Have fun!
