Geocache Description:

This is a riddle along the river in Mariefors

NOTE: STARTPOINT COORDINATES ARE ONLY PARKING!!!
Waypoints inkl. formula updated

Waypoint#1
N 60° 31.880 E 025° 06.311
Find a four digit number at waypoint1 that equals “abcd”

Waypoint#2
N 60° 32.291 E 025° 06.017
Find a number at waypoint2 that equals “efgh”
… a small mirror might come in handy at this point…

Final cache
N 60° x1x2.x3x4x5 E 025° y1y2.y3y4y5

You do the math:)
x1=(c-h)+a
x2=b/(y2+y3)
x3=y2+h
x4=y4/2
x5=((fy3)+a)/e
y1=x2(x4-(y4/h))
y2=h(b-g)
y3=(y5+8)/f
y4=x1(4-h)+h
y5=(x3+a)/b

Good luck!

Note: microcache - no room for travellers or pencil!

Note2: "dangerous animals" attribute because 16.1.2012 two wolves have been spotted near STAGE2!
