    Re: Six of the best

    1. I can't think of one, and I defintely disagree with Hans' answer, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">EIGHT</span hide> is not in alphabetical order
    5. 10 cubed in base 9 is, of course, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1000</span hide> as it would be in any base, including base 3.

    Weeelll, I didn't give to Stuart for doing it in French, so I shouldn't really give to you. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    But I can tell you, your two answers are factors of this number, and to give you another clue<span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> It is half my auntie's age</span hide> <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>
