    1# <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">** = multiply the first number with (second number + 4)
    ++ = multiply (first number - 1) with (second number - 2) and add 2 to the product.
    So 8**7 = 8 * 11 = 88
    88++9 = 87 * 7 + 2 = 611</span hide>

    I think I've done another Rudi! <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30> I have a different (and obviously not a unique) solution.
