### Geocache Description:

The cache is not at the coordinates listed above.

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!

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

Congratulations to benandtina for FTF.
