Dawn guessed 1,860, which was too high. Here’s the hint: More than 1,743, less than 1,860.

  1. If someone gets the right number, and they are the person I randomly choose to be the official guess for that time period, they would be the winner. So of the 18 entries on the page, your odds are 1 in 18 to be the entrant of the hour. But your chances of having the right number are one in 116. And every incorrect guess by an entrant narrows the range of guesses down.

  2. And by the way, I’ll be shutting this round of guesses down at around 45 minutes after the hour. The new round should be posted by about 50 minutes after.
