A group of crazy bank robbers try to crack a safe, even though they don't have a clue what the code is.
The code has 5 numbers in, and the numbers on the dial range from 1 to 60. If they crack the safe, they get £100 billion.(That's a British billion - a million million). If they get the code wrong, they get caught and fined £1 million.
Assuming the bank robbers don't enter the same code twice, if they keep trying and re-trying until they crack the safe, are they more likely to have lost or gained money? If so, how much would they probably gain/lose?
I am unsure if invoking the code is as important as knowing the code.
Anyway, I think of knowing how to work the safe as not having to do with the code. I think by "not having a clue what the code is" means they know how to work the safe (as it doesn't say they don't know the clockwise/counterclockwise, but it does about the code), so I would agree with Charlie's answer.
