My dear Anthony,

I must say that yours is really a clever and out of the box solution, although i am not sure whether 'base' can be considered as a mathematical sign. However this is one possible solution.

Do you have any other solution in vase 10 system ?with the clue given by me ?

cheers!

My dear Tony,

You are thinking in a too complicated way. you can do it with normal maths signs which even an eighth standard student is aware of . No cos and mod knowledge is required. it is far more simple.

I'll post the solution on monday, if nobody cracks it earlier.
