Skill Testing Math Question

I have a simple question for you...

If one was acting as the name of the Xth dwarf in alphabetical order of Disney's seven dwarfs would imply where X is defined as the sum of the digits of the year in which Michael Jackson's best selling album was released divided by the number of planets found within our solar system's asteroid belt, what might they be doing?

a) smiling
b) frowning
c) performing surgery
d) blowing their nose

To figure out the mystery dwarf (xth) you need to find the sum of the year then divide by the number of planets.....

Hmm good question. Which dwarf are you? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson%27s_Thriller is a good place to start. Good luck kids!!

a happy 1982 thriller. Add 1+9+8+2=20

The asteroid is between Mars and Jupiter. 4 planets are inside.

20/4=5

1) Bashful, 2) Doc 3) Dopey 4) Grumpy 5) Happy 6) Sleepy 7) Sneezy

So it would be A.) happy
