Geocache Description:

The cache is not hidden at the above co-ordinates. To find it you will need to find my Olympic Ring TB's which are travelling around Surrey.


There are five Olympic Rings (Blue, Yellow, Black, Green and Red). Each travel bug has two tags attached which have some letters and numbers on them.

You need to find each of the five travel bugs and work out the following:

a = Red K+K
b = Green F+F
c = Yellow G+G
d = Black H+H
e = Blue D+D
f = Green K+K
g = Black E+E
h = Yellow E+E
i = Red B+B
j = Blue J+J

Here "Red K+K" simply means that you need to add together the numbers associated with the two letter K's on the Red Olympic Ring travel bug. You do the same thing with all the others. It might sound complicated but don't worry, it will be really obvious when you see it.

The cache is hidden at N51 x/1000 W0 y/1000

where
x = a*(b+c)*(d+e+f)
y = 3*(x + (g*h*(i-j)))
