Thanks for posting the answer and method of solving it :) .But I am not able to make sense of it at present.Maybe I will get hold of it tomorrow.Have to sleep.And by the way I tried for 196 till 30 odd iterations and till now I have not got the answer . But i will keep trying . Maybe I may become a maths nobel laureate(not sure of spelling) ;)

I hate to end your dream, but there is NO Nobel Prize in mathematics... :(

Crap - I have the correct number written next to my original solution, 78987. Guess if I weren't such an ADD person I may have pursued that. Nice problem, though!

Hey. I was just joking . I know that there is no such thing as a mathematics nobel lauraete.What do you think the ;) was for?
And anyway before posting anything here I would definitely cross-check it . The world's top brains are here(P.S.Not joking) And thanks for replying to my post. :)
Hey thinking again my discovery could force the noble prize organisers to rethink the categories.I could become the first Mathematics nobel lauraete. ;)
