    ABCDEF

    A.BAC - F.BAC = A
    A.BAC x F.BAC = A
    A - F.BAC = F.DCE
    A - F.DCE = F.BAC
    F.BAC x F.BAC = F.DCE


    What makes these numbers so special?

    I'm not sure what is special about <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>168320</font color=yellow></span hi> . Any hints?

    Well done Drew. Now that is the issue!

    Why is 0.618 and 0.382 so special?

    I don't want to give too many clues away at the moment but a famous artist/painter/inventor maybe involved.

    Ah - so that's why I couldn't solve it! I was trying for an exact solution and concluded that it wasn't possible. The magic words are

    <center><span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow><big>Golden Section</big></font color=yellow></span hi></center>

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow> Well done Hans, I was enjoying watching Who's Online yesterday just after I posted it and saw you were looking at the post for about 10 minutes expecting a reply any moment. What made it better was I saw (T)Ricky having a view as well for about the same time..... it was good to see the experts slowed down (a little) on the Puzzle Board <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15> </font color=yellow></span hi>
