Spirit of '76 (Posted on 2004-03-14) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Can you find a 76-digit multiple of 276, written exclusively with 7s and 6s?

There has got to be a trick to this, I think.  The two appearances of 76 could be a clue.  Also, who said the 7s and 6s were decimal digits -- base 8 is quite possible. (Added in edit: Base 8 is not possible because the factor 2^76 would make the result have a bunch of zeros at the end.)
