  • i don't really think there is ambiguity. i got 3 different sets of numbers, but all of them have the same min/max numbers.

    you can check my code at: http://www.depesz.com/ovid.pl [depesz.com]

    of course i could have made mistake, but the numbers "look" right to me.
    • I get the same sets of numbers, but what does "six integers" mean in this context?

      • i think this is just an mistake on the side of new scientist.
      • You have three three-digit numbers, and their reverses. That makes six by my counting...
        • You have five three-digit numbers. One for 7, one for 11, but three for 9. If there was only one result for each of the three (which is what I was initially expecting), then six would make sense.

          • I think this mistake doesn't really matter.

            The request was:

            "What are the smallest and largest of your six integers?"

            even it we'll change it to "10 integers" the answer stays the same. i.e. the numbers i got for div/9 are neither min nor max.
