Been looking at this one on and off for a while but have not come up with anything new.


I`ve just been asked if this problem has been fully solved yet.

The answer is "No" ... only C1 has been solved ...and that was right at the beginning.

.

All the theories and ideas so far have not produced any answers...so C2 C3 C4 still waiting for answers

Anyone working on it still or has everyone now given up?

I have been assured that it IS solveable ...but very difficult.

I am solely focusing on C2 right now and slowly making progress. I have split up the boxes into odds and evens using Box to represent the whole box number not individual digits. If Box is even then I am using INT(Box/41) mod 5. For odd Box numbers I use INT(Box/13) mod 5. INT() is the integer function. I will post more updates soon.

if been working on this one since yesterday
as C1 has been solved I want to highlight:
E3695=1545
R0545=2545
L3865=2545
J6242=3545
A8930=4545
R0871=5545
the answer for the others should come from here

PS this one sucks

I ran this through our Codebreaker in the back yesterday. She's still processing it, but I've never seen her take longer than a few hours to find connections. Especially with so much data...

I think someone's pulling our leg.

What are you saying exactly? Is this a device? Computer? And umm... why would you spoil our fun? :P

If you take pleasure from trying to find a solution that isn't there, I'm sorry.

I won't give you the final results.

So you imply that you have final results, but again, "what/who is your "codebreaker in the back"? Any machine/computer has fixed limitations on the possiblities it will consider based upon criteria and algorithms that were programmed in. It would not be impossible to devise a code with such obscure formulas and advanced interrelationships between the values that a "codebreaker" couldn't solve it without first being given at least a portion of the algorithm. This would especially be true if the code writer were the developer of the "codebreaker" and knew it's limitations.

The flip side of that is that we've noticed many patterns that seem to develop but either contradict themselves or never fully develop, so is there any possibility that the data we are considering may have gotten corrupted some how?

Near the beginning of this many claimed that the letters meant nothing in breaking the codes. This assumption was only based off of two boxes with matching numbers and codes. It's very well possible that these letters do play some part in the codebreaking and I haven't ruled them out yet.

If you take pleasure from trying to find a solution that isn't there, I'm sorry.

I won't give you the final results.

I am assuming your "final results" isn't a solution to this problem. Does your machine compute letters as variables?

It can.

I've taken Mac's advice and have been trying my hand at logic using the letter and not using the letters.

I've hosted my file. Observations.
