<LI>The correct combination of math symbols (you may use add, subtract, multiply, divide and parenthesis) inserted amongst the numerals on the left side of the equal sign will make this statement true:
371231015135093 = 99
There may be more than one solution, but one correct solution will make you a winner!

Okay....I can deal with the fact that you breezed through the other three without having to tighten the thinking cap, but you could do wonders for my ego by telling me that #1 presented some challenge...

Now, you may realise from this message that I have had an extremely busy Friday afternoon and so decided to work out the factors of 371231015135093. The program has been running for some 90 mins so far and I have only been able to find one factor and that is 29...

Another great fact from Jezza <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

I am going to run it tonight so that I can confirm this for you

Hey Jerry,
Sorry to interrupt you on such a busy Friday <img src=/S/RollEyes.gif border=0 alt=RollEyes width=19 height=19> , but why 371231015135093?
What is significant about that number? or is that just how your nimble little fingers (you use 3 right?) tapped randomly on the number pad? <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>
