makr3la: My answer is: A = 1, B = 6299, N = 6299
That's stupidly deceptively simple...... Does 1 count as a prime number?

1 is not a prime number.
Rodzaju: 7^11 * 11^7 = 38532504363714053 digital route is 8.
Probably not the smallest N, but I think it's the smallest A & B.
7 + 11 = 18
5 + 13 = 18
So, the same :D

Lexor: 7 + 11 = 18
5 + 13 = 18
So, the same :D
And your N is higher than mine...

Mine isn't though :D

I'm anxious now actually for him to come back and say if we actually caught the right number.

But you were talking only about A & B xD
QC's answer seems to be correct, his N is the lowest.

Lexor: But you were talking only about A & B xD
But the 2 together were the same, so I had to use N as a tie breaker
;-}

I just plugged crap in my calculator until I found something without exponential that worked. I'm kind of wondering about the title now though. I checked it already and that other number doesn't work, so it isn't a hint.

I just quickly wrote a script, but made a typo and got 13 instead of 23 :)
You could have used wolframalpha, it basically does all the work for you: 1+[(x^y*y^x-1)(mod9)]

Ah, so in that case I got lucky that you goofed a bit the first time :D Sorry to say but I like free stuff, so if I win I'll probably keep it.

I've used wolframalpha actually for my calculus and diff.eq whenever I'm having integral problems. But of course the goofy thing bugs on me a bunch and will mistake a variable for a physics equation or something.

Oh, no, actually it all good. I'm not interested in the prize and should not have posted my answer in the first place :)

Actually I solved the 'title' riddle accidentally I believe. The answer just popped out when I was playing with wolfram and trying to program it to solve the main riddle.

So what has this to do with the phone number that is title of the thread, and did anyone dial it yet?

QC: And I have the answer too now.

N = 4437573632. A = 2, B = 23. The sum of N is 44, 4+4 is 8
Indeed you do - PM me the name of the game you want =)

Still Life 2 download is still in progress (only 2-3 hours left - yay) so the first to post a (semi-) correct 'interpretation' of the topic subject gets a \$5.99 game of his/her choice.

(Sorry for my belated reply - 'real life' happened. Again..)
