Once I solved each book and had the new first line, I said to my wife what if it is for this book I checked the beginning of the book not paying attention to the official beginning! Got there eventually.

Stumped me for a bit, anyone else start searching for "I am here" opening lines?

What a clever way to start this book

On January 2, 2022 at 9:23PM EST EMC2 responded to jmooser:

It's not the exact first words of the book, but M does start this first Theorem by saying "I am here" and then says "With these words, the story of The Master Theorem officially begins." So I think that's why it's considered the opening line of The Master Theorem.

This confuses me too. All of the clues involve the opening line of a book. But "I am here" is not the opening line of "The Master Theorem," as far as I can see.

I don’t see where it says “I am here” in the book! M! I don’t see it as the first words! Where is it?

The R is from a different book by the same author called the restaurant at the end of the universe

How was I supposed to get the letter R from the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy ?

I just realized why I couldn’t get it. I mixed up the I and the l in the Iliad I thought it looked and sounded wrong

I don’t think the first clue should count. I’d already figured that out.

It worked!

On May 21, 2021 at 7:42PM EST RascalsMama responded to EMC2:

I was putting in the "I am here" first...I'll try omitting that. Thanks.

What were you typing in that didn’t work? Curious since it seems like lots of people had similar trouble. It works for me when I type in “The Master Theorem”. Note that anything else like “I am here” isn’t the final answer and won’t work.

I had the correct answer, but it keeps telling me I'm wrong! I FINALLY checked the answer in the book, & I AM CORRECT!!

cover design helped me on this one for sure

I had the correct answer 30 minutes ago...what is the issue with the on-line solution?? I finally used all 3 hints and checked the book! I can stop guessing now (as my earlier answer was correct!).

I have to say I groaned a bit as soon as I figured this one out. The answer was right there all along! For those having issues with the website submission, I typed it all lowercase and it worked fine, like so: the master theorem

I know I have it right but the website says it’s wrong but the book says otherwise
