Post Challenge: Number Theory Reply with quote
Hi there!

I looked closer at the number and got ... lets say 14 numbers.
It is obvious that there is a certain order of these numbers...

I ran a lot of tests, but nothing gave me a clue. Maybe someone could give me a little hint.

Hmm, I managed to find the numbers, but now what? I've sorted them out correctly and tried a lot of logical things with them, but still unable to get anything meaningful out of it. Thanks

You got 14 numbers? You're confusing me. I got 7 and most of them are quite big. The smallest one is 3. Am I on the right track?

I've got 104 ... I guess *** isn't the right way Wink

edit ... oops ... just guessed you might talk about distinct numbers ... now I've also got 14


edit2: I don't get it. I tried modulo 26, but it didn't help. How are we supposed to convert them into a meaningful english word?

Why those 14 numbers?

1. Determine what they all have in common
2. Understand why those 14 were picked and not any others that might share similar properties
3. Look closely and it might just strike you

It's actually a fairly simple challenge once you know how Very Happy
