Celsius x Fahrenheit (Posted on 2005-08-31) Difficulty: 2 of 5
When, recently, I did a conversion of a positive integral Celsius temperature, C = 275, to its Fahrenheit equivalent, it turned out to be F = 527, and I notice that I could have simply moved the digit at right of C, to the front, to obtain F. After some intense calculations, I failed to discover the next largest such example.

Does one exist, and if so, what is it?

(5*10^Z - 41) mod 17 = 0

when Z = 2 or 18 or 34 ...

In UBASIC:

   10   for N=1 to 40
   20    Rslt=(5*10^N-41)@17
   30    print N,Rslt
   40   next
