It's a number, so what do you normally do with numbers?

That's a quite general hint Smile Most of the time at hacker.org you convert one number into another representation e.g. into hex or binary and then interpret things differently. I don't know of a format for such long floating point numbers.

It was meant to be general Smile if it were an integer, it would be obvious what to do - so treat it mathematically in *exactly* the same way - see if that helps!

Any relationship with Number Theory?

No, not really. Try reading about different compression algorithms. Maybe one of them will give you a sufficient hint to understand what to do for the first phase.

My first try worked Smile. I was solving it in debug mode expecting some of my assumptions would fail, but there was no problem at all.
