- 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!Sudip

Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your home page.

Never miss a thing. Make Yahoo your homepage. - Dear Roy,

Is this OK?

2 * cos(0.0) pow 8 = 2 Mod 8

I think this time the "." actually counts as fifth symbol.

I am not making any head way..

Be a better friend, newshound, and

Try it now. http://mobile.yahoo.com/;_ylt=Ahu06i62sR8HDtDypao8Wcj9tAcJ - 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.Sudip
