Puzzle

US Version

You've decided to make a special pair of dice that can display each day of the month numerically on your desk, as shown by the 12 at the top of the screen below.

Each day must use both dice, however, which means single-digit days like the first and second of the month will display as 01 and 02, respectively.

You thought you had the design figured out, but the layouts below won't display all of the dates. Draw a circle around the one number that needs to be changed.

Think about how you can make each date, starting with the first of the month.

US Version

The way things look at the moment, the seventh, eighth, and ninth of the month cannot be displayed.

For example, it's impossible to display "07" for the seventh day of the month because there's no zero to pair with the seven.

UK Version

The way things stand, the seventh and eighth of the month cannot be displayed.

For example, it's impossible to display 07 for the seventh day of the month because there's no zero to pair with the seven.

US Version

Have you considered flipping any of the numbers upside down to help you create all of the days?

UK Version

Have you considered turning any of the numbers upside down to help you display all the dates?

US Version

To display 07, you need to change one of the numbers on the right-hand die's layout to a zero. You need most of those numbers, but there's one you can spare if you flip the nine on the left-hand die upside down.

UK Version

To display 07, you need to change one of the numbers on the right-hand die to a zero. You need most of those numbers, but there's one you can afford to lose because you can turn the nine on the left-hand die upside down.

Correct

Nice!

The six needs to be changed.

US Version

The current design won't allow the dice to display the numbers 07 or 08. But if you change the six to a zero, you can flip the nine upside down to use it as a six and display all the dates!
