Geocache Description:

THE LISTED COORDINATES ARE FALSE

You will need to complete the requirements for the "Corporate Ca$he" Challenge in order to find this final geocache. Please read on...


This cache is part of the "Corporate Ca$he - Monopoly Challenge!", in which information needs to be obtained from every cache container before being able to surmise the coordinates for the final stash. Each cache is located within an area of White Plains that is a cluster of corporate offices for a wide variety of companies. After being relocated from upstate New York to one of these offices in June 2010, I realized that although I am surrounded by corporate America life every weekday, the back woods still burn strong inside of me. As a result, this series combines the two, and is designed to take you on a journey that shows the corporate world in a different light.

So you've made it fully around the board and now it's time to pass GO and collect your $200. At this point in time you've got mansions on Broadway, you have dinner and cocktails with Anne Hutchinson on the weekends, you own every utility/railroad, and your friends are begging you for a job just so they could pay the ridiculous taxes you charge them for owning the remaining 2 properties on Westchester Avenue. Good job! You are a true CEO of White Plains! Time for you to find the stash that has been left for you by your forefathers, but not until you have a lesson on monetary management. Here is a re-cap:

First you need to have found the following geocaches (in any order) and taken notes on the $$$ values associated with each container:
GC2H6BB - Old Kent & Whitechapel
GC2H6C2 - Vermont To Connecticut
GC2H6CQ - Pall Mall's Showboat
GC2H6DE - Bow & Marlborough
GC2H6DZ - MLK's Trafalgar Square
GC2H6F0 - Marven's Water Works
GC2H6FH - South Carolina's Pond
GC2H6G4 - Broadway & Park Lane
GC2H6G9 - Jersey Central & Seashore

With all the money you have collected so far, your total amount = X. To figure out the final coordinates you will need to manipulate that total number in the following manner.

You are looking to solve for:
N41* AB.CDE
W073* FG.HIJ

A = MLK - Bow
B = Jersey Central - South Carolina
C = The second digit of X
D = The first digit of (Bow + Marven + Broadway)
E = The first digit of VT&CT
F = South Carolina - Pall Mall
G = The first digit of (Broadway - Jersey Central)
H = The final digit of X
I = The first digit of (Bow + MLK - Broadway)
J = The first digit of (Old Kent + VT&CT)

Note: When I say "First digit" and "Last digit" let me give you an example: $5,087. First digit = 5, Last digit = 7
