How many times will the 5 digit be used in numbering the pages of a 145-page book?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Assume that the pages are numbered 1-145 in order and we don't have any other page numbering system.

In every ten pages the digit 5 will appear in the units column once,
e.g. 5, 15, 25, 35, 45 etc.
That makes 15 fives.

In the 50's the digit 5 will also appear in the tens column
e.g. 50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59
That makes another 10 fives.

Don't worry about page 55, remember we counted the unit's digit 5 first then the ten's digit 5.

The book is too short to have digit 5 in the hundreds column.

So the digit 5 appears 25 times in the numbering of a 145-page book. == Answer
== From 1 to 145, we have 9 one-digit numbers and 100 two-digit numbers and 46 three-digit numbers

In one-digit numbers we have only one chance to have 5.

In two-digit numbers we can have 5 in the units place, in the tens place or the both.

If we have 5 in the units place, then we can fill up the tens place by the numbers from 1 to 9. So, we get 9 chances.

If we have 5 in the hundreds place, then we can fill up the units place by the numbers from 0 to 9. So, we get 10 chances.

In three digit numbers, we can’t have 5 in hundreds place and tens place because we have 145 pages in all. So, we can have 5 in units-place only.

The hundreds place cannot be filled with any other number except 1.

So, we can fill the tens place by the numbers from 0 to 4 only. So, we get 5 chances.

In total, 25 times we come across 5. Source:

No. The book of Mark (The Gospel according to Mark) is in the New Testament of the Bible. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints use both the Bible and the Book of Mormon as scripture, so they still believe in the Book of Mark.

How much is an original 1830 Book Of Morman worth?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It depends on what condition it is in and what the history of that particular copy is.

Recently, an 1830 copy of the Book of Mormon in good condition with an interesting family history was appraised at $100,000 on Antiques Roadshow. Other fair to excellent condition copies have recently sold for $50,000 to $180,000.

If you have an 1830 Book of Mormon (or any other historic Mormon documents) I suggest getting in contact with John Hajicek of Independence, Missouri or Ken Sanders of Salt Lake City - they are the two leading appraisers and collectors of historic Mormon documents.

Found gold plates engraved with sacred writings that became the Book of Mormon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Latter-day Saint movement, believed to be translated by Joseph Smith from golden plates he found buried in upstate New York in the 1820s. The plates were said to have been engraved by ancient American prophets. The Book of Mormon recounts the history of ancient inhabitants of the Americas and their interactions with God.

How many times is the word 'kindness' used in the Book of Mormon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The word "kindness" is used three times in the Book of Mormon, all in reference to the Savior, Jesus Christ.

They are:

3 Nephi 22:8

In a little wrath I hid my face from thee for a moment, but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on thee, saith the Lord thy Redeemer.

3 Nephi 22:10

For the mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that hath mercy on thee.

1 Nephi 19:9

And the world, because of their iniquity, shall judge him to be a thing of naught; wherefore they scourge him, and he suffereth it; and they smite him, and he suffereth it. Yea, they spit upon him, and he suffereth it, because of his loving kindness and his long-suffering towards the children of men.

Is there archaeological evidence for the book of Mormon?

Asked by Wiki User

* The large sections of the Book of Mormon which are copied from the Christian Bible undoubtedly have archaeological evidence. The sections which are not from the Bible do not, and are in fact refuted by archaeology.

* The Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship Research at Brigham Young University has links to scholarly research documenting archaelogical and historical, cultural and linguistic evidence for the Book of Mormon.The body of scholarship, which has been growing in volume and sophistication of method and detail for at least the last forty years, is worth reviewing.

Where did Joseph smith say he received the ideas for the book of Mormons?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Joseph Smith claimed to have recieved an ancient recordinscribed on metal plates. These plates were buried underground and he was lead to the spot where they were by an angel.

The Book of Mormon is a direct translation of this ancient record, whichJoseph translated from an unknown language (a sort of Hebrew/Egyptian hybrid) by the gift and power of God. The Book of Mormon does not claim to be a collection of religious "ideas" given to Joseph Smith, but a direct translation of the Word of God as given to ancient peoples. Several friends and associates of Joseph Smith assisted him in transcribing the translation as he dictated it straight from the plates, all ofwhom testified that his story is true.

You may be thinking instead of the Doctrine and Covenants, which is a collection of visions andrevelations given to Joseph Smith from God. The Doctrine and Covenants serves as a modern witness, as opposed to the ancient records of the Holy Bible and the Book of Mormon.

Asked by Wiki User

The Book of Mormon, like the Bible, was written by ancient peoples between the years 2600 B.C. and 421 A.D. The records were eventually collected and transcribed onto metal plates and buried.

In 1828, Joseph Smith, Jr. was lead by an angel to the place where these plates were buried. He translated them into modern English by the power of God.

It's mentioned through out the entire book of mormon. The one section that comes to mind though is 2 nephi Chapter 2 verses 22 - 27 22 And now, behold, if Adam had not transgressed he would not have fallen, but he would have remained in the garden of Eden. And all things which were created must have remained in the same state in which they were after they were created; and they must have remained forever, and had no end. 23 And they would have had no achildren; wherefore they would have remained in a state of innocence, having no bjoy, for they knew no misery; doing no good, for they knew no csin.

24 But behold, all things have been done in the wisdom of him who aknoweth all things.

25 aAdam bfell that men might be; and men care, that they might have djoy.

26 And the aMessiah cometh in the fulness of time, that he may bredeem the children of men from the fall. And because that they are credeemed from the fall they have become dfree forever, knowing good from evil; to act for themselves and not to be acted upon, save it be by the punishment of the elaw at the great and last day, according to the commandments which God hath given.

Do the Mormons believe The Book of Revelation is a book of the Bible?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

No. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) believe that the Book of Revelation is a very important part of the Bible. Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church, stated that the Book of Revelation was "one of the plainest books God ever caused to be written" and strongly encouraged that it be studied. Among Mormons, the Book of Revelation is probably studied and quoted more than the Epistles of Paul.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints accepts and uses all the books in the standard King James Version of the Bible, although Joseph Smith said that "the Songs of Solomon are not inspired writings."

How many changes were made to the Book of Mormon from the original version to the present version?

User Avatar

Asked by Itchiec2

The answer depends on which version you consider original - the original handwritten manuscript or the printer's version.

The original manuscript had a number of misspellings, punctuation errors, and grammar mistakes that were edited by the first printer (Joseph Smith had very little formal education at the time it was published). A few possible typo's were inserted at the same time as well as some transcription errors. The current version was a best attempt to produce the most accurate version possible with the grammar errors of the manuscript corrected but also fixing transcription errors based on recovery of some of the original handwritten manuscript that had been thought lost. Nearly all of the myriad corrections were so inconsequential that they are difficult to find. Apparently all the changes of consequence brought the current version closer to the original handwritten manuscript.


To ask of faith requires faith. it does not matter if you agree or disagree. it only matters that you are looking in earnest. which of the two responses below. has more thought and which has the rhetoric. If you wish to know what the book of Mormon, or bible say read them. If you wish to know the truth of it. should you take the words written here? or that of a loving father. Now please reference the 4000 revisions, and no I will not take the Tanners word for it. So is there a cure for cancer? there most certainly is. We do not yet have a grasp on it, but, I have faith that we someday will.

The answer below was obviously contributed by a believing member of the LDS church. I will answer the question using facts and without all the ridiculous attempts to try and defend the truthfulness of the book.

There have been almost 4,000 revisions and changes to the Book of Mormon since its original publishing.

Now that I have actually answered the question, I address this to the person who "answered" this question before me:

I disagree that "One must read the book, then ask in faith, not wavering if it be true." This is not how you determine the truthfulness of something. If we all sat around asking in faith if things were true, we'd still be in the dark ages waiting for signs and miracles to determine the truth in the world around us.

If you really want to ask something in faith, not wavering, and get an answer: how about you ask for a cure for cancer. See if that works and get back to me.

ORIGINAL ANSWER: I do not know the exact number of changes to the original text of The Book of Mormon, though some have suggested that well over 3000 changes were made up until the last printing in about 1979. Then a compilation of the Bible, Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price and the Doctrine and Covenants was published.

As every author will know that there will be certain changes that will have to be made to every book which is published. I doubt if such a book ever existed that has passed through the printing press that has not had to be reprinted because of some errors.

The Book of Mormon is no exception when one must remember that there were many scribes who took part in writing what came from Joseph Smiths lips. Spelling, punctuation, misunderstanding a word or sentence. Then there is the original publisher of The Book of Mormon, a man not to friendly towards the Mormons.

What changes were made where done under the direction of the Spirit, thus making The Book of Mormon the most correct book of its kind.

The question one now has to ask oneself is "Is the book true"? If it is not then it does not matter how many corrections were made, so one may cast it aside as fiction. If it be true, then one has the way to salvation through its teachings.

One must read the book, then ask in faith, not wavering if it be true. The only conclusion one may come to if finding that the book is true, is that the church is also true.

What Book of Mormon verse says by their works ye shall know them?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

This exact phrasing is not in the Bible, the closest being "by their fruits..." :-

Mat 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Mat 7:17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Mat 7:18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

Mat 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Mat 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Mat 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?

Mat 7:23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Did Ellen g white quote the book of Mormon?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

i'm not sure but i would be willing to find out.

Another answer:

There are some similarities between the words of Ellen G. White and Joseph Smith. The similarities are not significant enough, in my opinion, to prove that she plagarized or was influenced by Joseph Smith's teachings. She had a similar upbringing to Joseph Smith and that could be why she used some of the same terms and had similar ideas. There is no evidence that she ever quoted the Book of Mormon directly, but she did use some of the same terms that the Book of Mormon uses (terms such as "carnal security", "bar of God", "plan of Redemption", and the idea that mortality is a time of "probation"). The strongest evidence of copying the Book of Mormon is that one of her visions somehwat resembles a vision recorded by the ancient prophet Lehi in the Book of Mormon.

According to Microsoft Word's count of a doc that I made. The current electronic version of the Book of Mormon (which is distributed in many different means:, LDS Library, Gospelink, Scripture CD-ROM, CES, etc.) has 268,163 words.That is with all the chapter numbers, verse numbers, and chapter summaries removed and as one solid paragraph. I know that is not exactly as the original 1830 Book of Mormon or any other version, but then every one has been different. You just want to be close, I'm sure. My doc has 1,150,219 characters with no spaces, and 1,418,073 with spaces.

This is not counting:

Who translated the book of Mormon into spanish?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Daniel Webster Jones and Mileton G. Trejo first began translating sections of the Book of Mormon into Spanish in 1874. They raised money to publish 2,000 copies of "Choice Selections from the Book of Mormon" and brought this translation with them on a mission to Mexico.

The first complete translation of the Book of Mormon into Spanish was completed in 1886 by Mileton G. Trejo and James Z. Stewart. This was later revised by Rey L. Pratt and Eduardo Balderas. Balderas was named the Church's chief Spanish translator and later made minor revisions to the Book of Mormon in 1949, 1969, and 1980.
