## Geocache Description:

“We All Use Math Every Day” is a famous quote from a celebrated Geocacher, Captain Math. He constantly reminds us how numbers play an important role in our lives. One never really stops to think how numbers affect you day after day, week after week and year after year. They can be fun or vexing, rational or irrational but always an integral part of your existence. Where would we be if “0” was never discovered? What would life be without Pi? Who would have heard of Fibonacci without his series? We would forever be in the dark about what MC2 was equal to!

Below is a list of people you might have heard about. These individuals lived by the numbers in their everyday life. Consider this fact and amass your data.

Then your task is to “Do The Math!”

B = Andy Dufrane

C = Elvis Presley

D = Frank Sinatra

E = Jean Valjean

F = Martha Stewart

G = Al Capone

H = Martin Luther King

I = Bill Gates

J = Johnny Cash

K = Hannibal Lecter

L = John Dillinger

M = Charles Manson

N = Pablo Escobar

0 = OJ Simpson

**A = F - M + C - B + G – N + E**

**Z = O - I + D – K + H - L + J**

**A – Z = ?**

You can validate your puzzle solution with certitude.
