Geocache Description:

Ain't Mysteries so sweet!

I am bad with math. I do not seem to get the numbers quite right and consequently multicaches with calculation involved are so not for me. Anyhow if you are in it for the math, I hope there's at least some challenge for you.

From the given coordinates you will find a number. Use that number and solve the mathematical challenge to find the final coordinates where the cache is hidden. Let that number be X.

To solve the math challenge you'll need to familiarize yourself with the Hardcastle's constant (=Y) and the Corgan year (=Z).

The final coordinates are:

N 60 X.(2Y*Y)
E024 (2+2Y+X/11).Z+X-(X*100+X+X/11)
