Well, via the methods that you obtained those 14 numbers, you should know one property that all 14 of those numbers share. Identify why those 14 and not any others that are related in the same way. After that it's just applying a bit of logic...

This isn't exactly a hint but I knew what to do, how to do it and how to get it done all in the matter of minutes. It's not that hard, don't over think it.

If you are as far as JanB it's very hard to give hints without giving away too much Smile

I'm not a math student. I did a certain thing which got me 14 numbers between 300 and 500. Am I on the right track? I don't know a property that they all share except the obvious one of course.

Yes, you are on the right track.
I think laz0r gave a quite helpful hint.

I got the 14 numbers and sorted them properly. I can't figure out how to convert it into an english word. I've tried every logical thing I could think of at this point. Could I have a hint please?
