Answer Peter Minuet was the person who purchased Manhattan for 24$.
A minuet is a type of dance piece. It is often associated with "Minuet and Trio" which usually was the form of the third movement in a traditional symphony from the Clas…sical period.
The length of a minuet depends on the song chosen. It can also vary by the tempo at which it is played. The tempo is usually a bit quicker when played alone than when accompan…ying dancers.
A minuet, is a social dance of French origin for two persons, usually in 3/4 time. The word was adapted, from Italian minuetto, and French menuet, meaning small, pretty, deli…cate, a diminutive of menu, from the Latin minutus; menuetto is a word that occurs only on musical scores. The word refers probably to the short steps, pas menus, taken in the dance. At the period when it was most fashionable it was slow, ceremonious, and graceful.
Use the fact that 4 and 7 have no common prime factors. If you run both timers at the same time, restarting each one whenever it rings, then sooner or later the seven-minute t…imer will go off two minutes after the four-minute timer did - and then you're in business. In detail: m0: start both timers m4: timer 4 rings, restart it m7: timer 7 rings, restart it m8: timer 4 rings, restart it m12: timer 4 rings, start cooking the egg m14: timer 7 rings, restart it m21: timer 7 rings, take out the egg. The egg went in at minute 12 and came out at minute 21 - nine minutes of cooking. This works because the 7-minute timer rang two minutes after the 4-minute timer did; the seven-minute timer times the last stretch. You can also make the 4-minute timer time the last stretch, and this is actually quicker (I just realized): m0: start both timers m4: timer 4 rings, restart it m7: timer 7 rings, put in the egg m8: timer 4 rings, restart it m12: timer 4 rings, restart it m16: timer 4 rings, take out the egg The egg went in at minute 7 and came out at minute 16, which means it cooked for nine minutes.
