## Geocache Description:

There are many strange mushrooms growing along Tsukuba Rin-rin Road.
Actually, these mushrooms and you seem to be birds of a feather...

Anyway, collect three numbers here and derive the coordinate of the final cache.

There are two types of mushrooms.
One is white colored and the other one is silver.
Each mushroom has a uniqure number (No.XX) on the stem. Collect this number.

Information: You can visit the STAGE 3 first if you approach this area from the north.

STAGE 1:
There are some pairs of a white mushroom and a silver mushroom side-by-side in more than two places. Find the pair which are lined in the order of white, silver from the left to the right. Write down the number on the white mushroom. This is a number "a".

STAGE 2:
There is a place which three silver mushrooms are lined side-by-side. Write down the number on the central mushroom. This is a number "b".

STAGE 3:
There are some pairs of a white mushroom and a silver mushroom side-by-side in more than two places. Find the pair which are lined in the order of silver, white from the left to the right. Write down the number on the white mushroom. This is a number "c".

STAGE 4:
Calculate a number "d" and "e" with the following formulas.
d=a*a
e=a+c

STAGE 5:
Now substitute the numbers into the below and derive the coordinate of the final cache.

N 36° 07.bcd E 140° 08.abe

つくばりんりんロード沿いに奇妙なキノコがいくつも生えています。

それはさておき、３つの数値を集めて最終キャッシュの位置を割り出してください。

キノコには２種類あります。
１つは白いキノコ、もう１つは銀色です。
それぞれのキノコには軸の部分に番号（No.XX）が書かれています。この番号を集めてください。

※北（筑波山方面）からここにアプローチする方はステージ３から始めても結構です。

ステージ１：

そのうち、左から白、銀色と並んでいるところを見つけ、白いキノコの番号を書き取ってください。
これが数値aです。

ステージ２
３つの銀色のキノコが並んでいる箇所が１つあります。

これが数値bです。

ステージ３：

そのうち、左から銀色、白と並んでいるところを見つけ、白いキノコの番号を書き取ってください。
これが数値cです。

ステージ４：

d＝a×a
e＝a+c

ステージ５
