When the game starts you will see a number line that is three units long. The units are divided into ten equal parts, or tenths of a unit.

Watch carefully after you press the <Start> button because the Blinker Transporter will zoom in and inject Blinker onto a stream on a remote planet. Blinker is unhappy about being deposited into a stream and he wants to be picked up. The Transporter navigator forgot where Blinker was deposited so a Rescue Transporter will need to be navigated to Blinker's location. Help guide the Rescue Transporter to Blinker's location by determining his position to the nearest thousandths of a unit on the number line.

You do this by entering the minimum and maximum amounts that he might be between. If Blinker is between the two amounts you entered, a bar will appear on the number line that shows your entry. If Blinker is not between the two amounts entered you will be told this in the notification window. You may then change the minimum or maximum amounts.

If the difference between the minimum and maximum amounts is equal to or smaller than 1, that portion of the line will be magnified 10 times to a tenths number line. Each tenths unit in the tenths number line is divided into ten parts or hundredths of a unit. You may now guess Blinker's position in tenths or hundredths.

If the difference between the maximum and minimum amounts is equal to or smaller than one-tenth (0.1), that portion of the line will be magnified 10 times to a hundredths number line. Each unit of the hundredths number line is divided into ten parts or thousandths of a unit. You may now guess Blinker's position in hundredths or thousandths of a unit.
