    Random problem

    So I know there is some kind of equation to solve this problem that I just done see or understand.

    Truth be told this is for a video game I play and im just trying to be slightly better at. I formed the problem they best way I could.

    If you understand this, please explain the best you can and give me the answers I am looking for. If this is the wrong place to ask I am sorry, please move my problem to where ever it should be.

    Yes I know I am horrible at math, but this is math help. Please refrain from negativity to what I am sure is an inferior intellect.


    Problem:
    You get 4 attacks per 10 gems. What is the minimum amount of damage you must earn per attack on each level
    higher than one in order to get the most overall points while conserving the most gems.

    Level--------Health------Bonus Points-------------Total
    1-----------70,000---------10,000----------------80,000
    2----------700,000--------200,000--------------900,000
    3---------3,300,000------3,450,000------------6,750,000
    4---------5,700,000------6,300,000-----------12,000,000
    5---------8,000,000-----12,000,000----------20,000,000


    What kind of math problem is this anyways?

    Re: Random problem

    What do "attacks" have to do with health or "bonus points"? How does one convert from attacks to health or bonus points?

    Re: Random problem

    First, there need not be an "equation" in the sense that you are thinking about. It may just be a table somewhat similar to what you already have specified. I suspect that what you are looking for is a "function."

    Second, and far more important, you have not given enough information. You ask about damage, gems, attacks, but you have not told us how they relate to each other or to the information about levels and points and types of points that you have specified.
