Just for fun, try solving this.

# 1

Find numbers x & y such that they satisfy:

a)  y / x  =  c

b)  (y + 1) / (x + 1)  =  k

c)  (y + 2) / (x + 2)  =  q

x, y c, k & q are positive integers. Also,

c - k  =  2^8

k - q  =  (2^8) - 1

 

I should say it's not so much the answer as how the numbers align to create such a pattern that I find interesting.


Cheers to cevi who got the answer first.
