GOT MATH? For some solving a math problem is like listening to wonderful music; it brings pleasure to the very core of their being. For others solving a math problem brings on headaches and nausea. If you are one of the former, then enjoy the task presented below. If you are one of the latter, then phone a friend!
Your task is to solve the simultaneous equations:
The answers for A, B, C, D, E and F are all integer values (positive or negative).
Once you have solved the equations, the cache is at:
N 44 x and W 068 y
where x = (880A + 1300B - 720C + 3501D + 500E + 1000F)/1000
and y = (1260A + 1807B + 612C + 2960D - 800E + 973F)/1000
You can check your answers for this puzzle on Geochecker.com.
