Wow, that is really well done! I'm trying to figure out how you did it, but I keep on missing a variable. I think I am being stupid here, but it's buggin me now. Care to share how you did it?

You solve the problem using two variables.

The first variable is the X you listed 6.X333. You multiple the number of votes by the score. For the score, you have digits from 1 to 9 to substitute in for X. When you solve the equation, throw out any scores that don't end in essentially a whole number. For example, 6.6333 x 255 = 1691.49 while 6.7333x255 = 1716.99 = 1717. It should be noted that 6.9333 x 255 also achieves a whole number....but that is where psychology comes in...and that is the second variable.

Hahaha! That's exactly what I did, but when I got more than one possible answer I was stumped. Psychology, now who would've thought of that?? :)

I sure hope the two "X"s are the same in your equation. Otherwise you are lying and that kind of thing is frowned on!!!!

To me, there was one entry that just totally stood out as being incredibly awesome. I can't wait for the challenge to finish to see whose it is. For whatever reason, I found myself voting higher than usual in this challenge. I liked the thought, cohesiveness, and craftsmanship that so many put into their images. Also, I think it was a nice change to not have just one shot to focus on, but more of a thought to consider.


Now that it's over, which one did you pick?

My guess is this one --> ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_828820.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1110/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_828820.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I'll second that guess..... but then I went and read the comments so I'd say it's a pretty safe second.....
