 Space Balls - the NEW luggage combination (Posted on 2013-08-15)
After the fiasco with King Roland and the “air shields”, and at Lord Dark Helmets taunting, President Skroob has asked me to come up with a new 5-digit combination for his luggage. The combination I come up with is such that if I add a 1 to the end of the number, I get a number that is 3 times bigger than if I add a 1 to the beginning of the number.

(Of course President Skroob is not smart enough to figure out the combination and has to always ask Lord Dark Helmet anyway.)

 Submitted by jduval No Rating Solution: (Hide) Simple math. Let n=number. n with a 1 at the end is simply 10n+1. n with a 1 at the beginning is simply 100,000+n. Set those to be equal with the X3 multiplier on the latter, and you get: 10n+1=3(100000+n) 7n=299999 n=42857
