Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you mean as a arithmetic combination of these numbers or does it mean like you can use only 2,3,4,5,6 to represent the number? like 23 is a valid number but 37 is not because it uses 7?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sure there's some fancy statistics way to do this, but thinking about it the long way... For onedigit numbers: only 3 works so 1 For two digit numbers: 3 still has to be the second digit, but any of the 5 numbers can be first, so 5 For three digit numbers: 25, by similar logic for four: 125 for five: 625 for six: 3125 so 1 + 5 + 5^2 + 5^3 + 5^4 + 5^5 = 3906 I'm not totally sure of my method. That make good sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh woops, went one exponent too far. Sixdigit numbers don't qualify. so 1 + 5 + 5^2 + 5^3 + 5^4 = 781

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right...somehow didn't even see the 5. Apologies. What would that do?...it would mean that both 3 and 5 could be the last digit, and make for twice as many possibilities, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm relatively confident that it's 781*2 = 1562, but I know my work is pretty sloppy.
