ten*ten ten = ninety (Posted on 2009-10-25) Difficulty: 2 of 5

(ten)*(ten) - ten = ninety

Determine the minimum value of b, for which there exists at least one solution to the above equation.

Mine didn't actually get up to 100 either; when I stopped it, I think it had only gotten to the mid thirties, but it was easier to code 100 initially than to guess what value to use.

Righ now, I'm just letting it run; it's up to 36 now.
