I support you. This reply just sounds good, it has the oomph-factor and is neither shambolic nor ramshackle. It sounds angular, it has a nice staccato feel to it. And no one ever just comes up with '332', as if it were an easy find.

As authentic as it gets.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

It's not logical though is it? 9 is more logical.

These are the factors of -270

-1 x 270 = -270
-2 x 135 = -270
-3 x 90 = -270
-5 x 54 = -270
-6 x 45 = -270
-9 x 30 = -270
-10 x 27 = -270
-15 x 18 = -270
-18 x 15 = -270
-27 x 10 = -270
-30 x 9 = -270
-45 x 6 = -270
-54 x 5 = -270
-90 x 3 = -270
-135 x 2 = -270
-270 x 1 = -270

Red highlights are the numbers in the sequence, continuing the sequence would mean that the missing number is 15.

Also, the numbers being 2, 6, 15 and 30 are (respectively) 135, 45, 18 and 9 as factors of -270.

270/2 = 135... 135 / 3 = 45.
270/6 = 45... 45 / 2.5 = 18.
270/15 = 18... 18 / 2 = 9.
270/30 = 9... 9 / 1.5 = 6.

Just illustrating there is another pattern there, 3 to 2.5 to 2 to 1.5 which all stands to reason I suppose.


I don't know what I'm saying now so I'll stop.

Bit of fun anyway!


I think you maybe on to something! Although you lost me from ‘ also, the numbers……’

That's good thinking Bob
